Served in Imperial pint glass. Poured a rich ruby color and had a thin head that had no retention and minimal lacing.

The aroma was a nice blend of malt & hop, but the hop is certainly the dominant aroma, with the primary being a spicy hop scent. The taste is very hop forward, but the malts stand strong to bring a certain level of balance.

The body is very good for the style, a little thinner than great. Drinkability is very good, but after a couple the tongue would start to fatigue. Overall, worth trying if you see it. This beer seemed to be very similar to the St. Rogue Red, would Rogue re-label an existing beer?
