New Mexico, to Tempe, to Orange County. I didn't realize that I had bought two bottles (one from two different stores) when I brought my $120 beer haul to California. Here's 12 ounces, and on to the beer:

Red...dark red colored. So dark that it looks crimson. A low head is formed on the head with just a few dots of lace sticking to the glass. The aroma at first has a touch of dry cardboard. Much of that clears up and underneath comes a pleasing hop aroma, pine, esters, passionfruit, and toasted sugar in small doses. Complex indeed. More hop forward than malt is the aroma, so there is some irony to taste a beer that's more malty than hoppy. Malty, fruity, toffee. Soft hop leaves and tea help diversify this red ale. Somewhat bitter like many IPA's, but sweeter. A bittersweet flavor lingers in its aftertaste of this medium bodied, low carbonated beer.

Yes, I like this one. Now I'm glad that I "accidently" bought a second bottle :-)

A - 4 - Really hazy amber red beer, nice thick film of white bubbles, nice lacing
S - 3.75 - citrus, grapefruit, orange zest, pine, sweet caramel malt.
T - 3.75 - citrus, grapefruit, orange zest, pine, sweet caramel malt. Pretty standard red ale. Little less citrusy than I want for an American Red Ale.
M - 4.00 - light medium mouthfeel, alc covered, aftertaste is citrusy/bitter hops
O = 3.75 - Good red ipa. I usually like these to be a bit more citrusy as opposed to just earthy bitterness. Like a fresh G'knight from Oskar Blues.
