look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a clean deep amber/red with a creamy tan head.

The smell is loaded with dark crystal malts and a bit of nuggetty hop aroma.

The flavor is malty sweet and very bready with a medicinel and herbal hop quality(I'm guessing Nugget).

The mouthfeel is a bit chewy and full, very creamy.

Nicely done interesting red, very good.

22oz bottle poured into tulip - thanks to therobot

Pours a hazed copper caramel color with a froth of beige head. Fades into bubbled retention with some patchy lacing on the glass.

Some piny hops in the nose with bready caramel. Some toasted notes with sweetness and light warmth.

Nice punch of pine bitterness up front. Resiny and sticky with a nice helping of hops. Thicker, bready malt backbone with toasted notes. Caramel sweetness with some lingering hop bitterness in the finish.

Medium body, well carbonated, sticky and a little chewy. Nice, full flavored red ale with an added dosage of hops.
