It pours a dark cloudy brown. A foamy one inch off-white head forms and slowly dies to a film coating the top of the pint. Sticky lacing clings around the sides of the nonic. The smell has the hops up front with some light caramel and nuts coming more so in as the beer warms. The taste takes all of the previously mentioned flavors and adds a nice clean sweetness with a tinge of alcohol. The mouthfeel is about a medium with a nice smooth creaminess surrounding the mouth and tongue. This is moderately drinkable. Overall, I like this and would come back to it.

Murky, dark amber color with beige head. Caramel and some earthy hops, sweet at first but gets pretty bitter in the finish and lingers in the aftertaste. Not bad but nothing really special.

This is a very good beer, but almost every aspect of it is out of style. Color is a few srm above max for a red ale, it´s deep brown. Smell is hoppy and a little bit malty, taste is hoppy as well, alcohol is higher than it should be, its a good and tasty beer, but not if you´re looking for a red ale.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter tasting glass.

A= Pretty deep amber color and pretty clear, small bubbles rising in the glass that form a thick white head. The head settles to a thin layer and ring around the glass, lots of clingy lacing.

S= Caramel and some roasty malts with a bit of pine and earthy hops.

T= Sweetness from the malt and slightly roasted caramel flavor, decent amount of hop bitterness and piney hop flavor, fairly clean tasting overall.

M= Lighter side of medium body with moderate carbonation.

O= Clean flavors, nice hoppy ale with lots of malt character.

Bottle stamped "338:14/15:50" (whatever THAT means) into pint glass. Very attractive clear, deep amber. Thick, persistent tan head. This is not a hop bomb, which is kinda what I expected from the name. Hops are very well-balanced by the malt, with little residual bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Aroma is resiny and piney, with toasted malt notes, specialty malt fruitiness, and muted citrus. There's a bit of a stinky feet note.

Flavor reveals big floral hop character throughout, finishing very bitter. Pine resonates late. Citrus is again muted. The specialty malt backbone provides a lightly sweet, toasted malt backbone. Just too bitter for me, and the floral hops are not my favorite.
