Mildly hoppy with a medium maltiness.

I guess I don’t have much more to add to this review right now. This sure ain’t poetry.
Beer reviews can be like that sometimes.

Had this on tap at Gourmet Haus in Redwood City, CA.

Another solid offering from a new up and coming brewery. I'm starting to keep an eye out for them as this and their Flagship Pale Ale have been as solid as they come.

Nice burst of hops and bitterness upfront, followed by waves of pineapple citrus, and sweet caramel malt backbone, just as you'd expect from a textbook hoppy red ale.

Crisp, refreshing and sessionable. Solid all the way around. Not over the top with hops and not at all on the mellow side of things being that I believe (but I'm not sure) that this is just below 6% ABV.

Recommended if you come across it. More great beer for the Bay Area!
