Been a while since I've visited this gem.

Biscuity and caramel-heavy like an ESB but it has a floral, resinous hop kick on the finish that distinguishes it. Pretty full-bodied with a prickly carnonation, that satisfes and makes each sip instantly require another.

It's a good brew and one I really shouldn't neglect.

12 oz bottle. Pours very hazy red amber with finger off white head, decent retention, good lacing. Aroma is mild, sweet malt and a touch of tropical fruit. The taste is really balanced nicely. Caramel malt backbone, but not sweet, there are plenty hops. The hop flavor is a mix of citrus peel, pine and dank earthiness which linger just the right amount. Medium soft mouthfeel. Really enjoyed this hop-forward red ale, wanted another.

Poured into a pint glass. Reddish amber color with a two finger head that recedes slowly and leaves lacing halfway down the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, and floral hops. Taste is a slightly fruity start with a caramel and malt backboned body and a good presence of hops throughout the drink. The hops don't leave a bitter aftertaste, and the beer is well hopped. Medium body with medium carbonation and just a little oiliness from the hops.
This is a beautiful amber that has a balanced malt body and a distinguished but not bitter hop profile. It didn't settle as a hop forward or malt forward, finding a very good place between. Very drinkable and easy to like.

I feel that this beer is mislabeled on Beer Advocate as a amber/red ale when it should really be classified as a Red IPA. Even still, this is an amazing beer and in my top 5 of all time. Great balance of malty and hoppy characteristics. 5/5.

A very respectable red that I tried on draft. Hop mix wasn't perfect, but was very assertive & super drinkability...

Best red ale (really it's a red IPA) I've ever had in my life. Haven't found anything that can compete, this beer is a perfect representation of it's style.
