Poured from bottle into pint glass. Amber red with not much head or carbonation. Very drinkable hoppy red ale. The hops and bitterness last on you tongue for quite a while. Not an everday beer at 7.5 abv, but one or two every once in a while for a nice change of pace. Very affordable at 6.99 for 6 pack in KC. Will buy again at this price point.

A: amber-red/orange in a goblet glass

S: malty and floral

T: caramel and malt with slight hops and nuts, even a little citrus

M: slightly bitter finish but a nice finish overall

O: Bought a 6er on sale for $5.99, a more than fair price for a unique beer. Interesting how 'triple hops' and 'double red' mix. I'm normally not a big fan of red ale but would definitely buy again for that price.

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-dark red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within a mild lacing.
The smell had a stringy lemon to caramel smell, weird blend, did I like it? Uh....not exactly.
Just plain weird.
The taste was mildly sweet with a cherished bland caramel sweetness. Not as bad as expected.
The mouthfeel was fairly smooth with a delicate harshness here and there.
Overall, not a bad American Red/Amber ale, though I might not seek this out, I might have this again if offered.
