Was supposed to be a weaker version of their IPA. Significantly less hoppy. Little bitterness but not much. Standard ale.

Actually kind of surprised about the reviews this was actually tasty enough to order a whole pint of. Had it as part of the sampler.

A - Very good red ale a 1/2 inch of foam sticky white head. The beer itself is a bright amber brown clear in color.
S - Has a citrus hop smell strong but not enough to cover up a sweet malt base with caramel notes.
T+M - I found it quite good almost like a "Nugget Nectar" lite. Smooth hop profile, crisp light to medium body. and a sweet finish with some lingering hops.

Overall even though it was one of the best beers I only ordered a pint of it. Was not worth repeated purchase like a growler. A very tasty beer to have with feed.
