Bought this and poured into a snifter, really enjoyed it. Its appearance is very nice and it has a great taste. Very nice brew for a chilly evening, thought it seemed to kinda have a warming effect, that i welcomed for a February release. Will buy again without a doubt

Deep blood red brew. Straw colored foamy head. Lacing is mild.
Apricot, mango, caramel, toffee, bready.
Dry, well finished, lingering well-done bitterness, zero heat, nice flat sweetness, lots of dry apricot and mango flavors. Matches the nose very well. High carbonation that matches very nicely.
Highly recommended, should be considered near top of it's class. I wish all ambers/reds were like this. Simply delicious and easy drinkin'.

poured super cold from a 12oz bottle to a shaped sun king pint a semi-translucent deep amber with a wisp of a short lasting head.
aroma of big earthy hops and brown sugars in the wayback.
very subtle, almost non-existent carbonation, yet it's not at all flat (?), medium bodied and hot.
big hops all over the place, as advertised, sweetness almost covered up entirely, but evident after its down the hatch.
interesting, but probably not going to down a sixer of these.
