Appearance: deep copper. Hazy. Thin head, small bubbles. Thin Lacing, but present.
Smell: caramel. Hops are very floral. Earthy.
Taste: grainy, bready, hoppy, tasty.
Mouthfeel: medium high carbonation. Slightly over carbonated for style. Crisp. Medium-light body. Think Paris Hilton.
Overall: great Red Ale. One of my favorites (based off of one schooner glass).
Serving type: on-tap

Traverse Red is brewed annually for The Bellingham Traverse, http://www.bellinghamtraverse.com/ a multi-leg race to raise funds for Salmon Habitat restoration. The beer was served in a straight pint glass in the beer garden at the brewery. Poured a deep red color with less than 1/2 inch of off-white head that quickly dissipated and left minimal lacing.
A solid malt aroma was nicely accented by a sharp hop scent. On the front of the tongue the taste is all malt, slightly sweet, then gives way to the hops across the middle and back of the tongue.
The body is full without being heavy or strong. Drinkability is very good, having several is no problem during this beers yearly appearance. Worth some effort to find, a must try if you see it.
Serving type: cask

"A generous amount of Vienna, Crystal, and Chocolate malts give this ale a big malty body with a deep ruby color. The addition of Centennial, Mt Hood, and Liberty hops provide a smooth refreshing finish, creating a perfect summer session beer to cool off with after a long Traverse. Original Gravity 1.052"
A: Copper-brown; leaves a nice white lace.
S: Bready, biscuity & nutty, with plenty of grapefruit citrus & appricot.
T: Appricot flavour is fairly prominent & tasty. Bread, Grapefruit citrus and a mild touch of light caramel round out the flavour. I was really impressed with the flavour of this brew... definitely one of their best.
M: Moderate body and carbonation.
D: Oh so good.
