Served in a pint glass at Mad Mex. Excellent red color with great clarity. Short light tan colored head with slightly sticky lace.

Smelled fairly modest. Some green American hops in there along with a light bready malt base.

This one tastes fairly hoppy for a Red Ale, though the bitterness level is quite low. The hops are green with a decent citrus punch and some floral pine is hidden underneath. Cascades perhaps?

Smooth, creamy, easily drinkable.

A solid brew, but not one I'd ask for again most likely.
