On tap at The Gate House in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark red, slightly clear in spots. Tons of visible carbonation. 1 inch head settles quickly. Rings of lacing all the way down the glass.

Smells very piney, with some tropical fruits (grapefruit mostly) pushing through. Some caramel malt is also present on the nose.

The taste is a explosion of flavor, and a pleasure to experience. Resinous, piney hop bite, with strong grapefruit. Tastes like I'm drinking liquid pine needles. The malt bill is interesting and plays nicely alongside the hops. Toasty, caramel malt backs up the hops and makes this a very full beer. Slightly spicy, almost pepper-like flavor on the back end, along with a highly enjoyable hop bitterness.

The mouthfeel is incredible. Making this an oatmeal red ale was a genius move- so smooth, and velvety on the tongue as you drink this one down. Beyond that, this is a very dry hoppy beer. Very drinkable.

3HB's best beer, IMO. I wish them the best, and hope more people get to experience their awesomeness.
