Ok, another random pick from a local market. Looks and smells like beer. Took a swig and got punched in the mouth with hops. Hate it. Just another bottle of carbonated hop-water. Really, is this the only standard for American micro-brews? Go hop heavy and forget anything else? If you're a hophead this beer is for you. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

Bottled on 9/25/13. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy dark copper; small off-white head that leaves nice retention and decent lacing. The aromas are full of caramel malts. There are some hints of orange peel, but this is all malts. Flavors are loaded with caramel. Subtle hints of pine. Very subtle hints of grapefruit and orange. It's not too bitter. Definitely on the sweeter side. There's not much pop to this one. The mouthfeel is wonderful and definitely the stand out to me. It's extremely creamy and smooth; perfect amount of active carbonation; medium-bodied. Very smooth. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

This is a solid red ale, but nothing too exciting.

Pours deep reddish amber with sparse head and some lacing. Nose features fair amount of citrus and pine followed by a decent grain presence. Taste is higher in the bitterness dept with nice citrus fruit as well as pine and caramel. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation. Overall a nice well balanced hop forward brew.
