On tap at the Draught House.

The beer pours a reddish color with a white head. The aroma is some biscuit and toffee malts with a whole lot of pine from the hops. It smells like a super-hopped red ale, which is how the bartender described it.

The flavor is very bitter, but very good. I get a lot of pine from the hops as well as some resin and some orange citrus. There is also a little bit of biscuit malt and some toffee, but the bitterness level is about medium. The beer is fairly dry and the bitterness is lingering.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Clear amber pour with a two finger head. Big hoppy flavor upfront with pine. Body has bits of biscuit and citrus. Bitterness lingers through to a really nice dry finish.

Can.

Aggressive bitterness, an unwelcome English bend, and a lackluster hop profile leave this imbalanced ale wanting.
