32 oz growler poured into Duvel tulip. Grant brought this one up from FL for me.

A - pours dark amber orange in the glass. Nice 2 finger dirty white head, little remains on the glass. Good amount of lacing.

S - Good amount of red malts and some honey scent mixed with a generous amount of hops. Floral, citrus, orange, and pine make it very nice. Some dark fruit scents.

T - Great flavor on this. Nice citrus, orange, and bitterness on the front giving way to fruity tones (bitter ones, however). Nice red malts, breadiness, honey, and dark fruit. The sweetness is followed by a more subdued kick of citrus and bitter hops. I love Red Ales that taste like this.

M - Nice carbonation for a Red Ale. Body is medium with some stickiness to it.

O - Another hopped up Red Ale that I enjoyed. May be closer to a Imperial Red IPA, so damn good. Thank you Grant!

Semi hazed mahogany color with orange glow around the edges. Off white head. Caramel and hops with a faint dark fruitiness.

Dried dark fruit sweetness up front. Medium bodied that holds up well to the carbonation. Sticky caramelized glazed dark fruit bowl throughout. Faint citrus hop adds a touch of underlying bitterness but for the most part the sweetness overrides this and linger slightly. Very clean finish and smooth beer. Wish it showed a little less dark fruit. Along with the hop finish slightly dried toast flavor to help dry it out. A very clean and very drinkable beer though. Good but nothing to write home about. The alcohol is very deceptive as you cant taste it at all and it could easily pass as a 5% ABV brew.
