(Best by) 11/13/14, so a little past its prime. Bought about three weeks ago on a trip through Pennsylvania.

But why such a gross label graphic? Scary for Halloween, but unappetizing and seemingly sophomoric. Are they trying to give Stone a run for their graphics money?

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Lawson's tulip.

a: Clear ruby/copper with a finger thick tan head which receded to patchy surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Mild caramel malt.

t: Smooth muted caramel malt with slight fruit notes and just enough hop bite for good balance. Dry finish. High ABV super well covered.

m: Medium, very smooth, good amount of carbonation tingle.

o; An enjoyable red, probably the best of this style I have had, perhaps with more hop presence when fresh but nicely balanced now. Would buy more if GL was available in my state.
