Massive props to nicks6217 for surprising me with this extra.

Gorgeous sunset-orange, largely clear, with a moderately dense off-white head. Falls to a half-inch raised curtain. Moderate bead.

Sturdy baked caramel and toffee malts paired with an equal hop presence of resinous pine, candied orange, sweaty socks and a hint of zippy herbs.

Rich, syrupy orange dominates, before slowly morphing into bitter earthy pine. Very solid and chewy toffee and savoury malt backbone. Quite a straightforward flavour profile, but so moreish.

Starts out full and syrupy, then is gradually replaced by a dry and astringent bitterness with good length.

Easy to see why this is so popular. Massively approachable and balanced red ale that is impossible not to like.

Got this 6 pack for my 21'st birthday! Living in Maryland it is not that easy to find.

A - Beautiful dark orange, off white head, crystal clear

S - Malty sweet , orange peel , citrus

T - Strong malt back bone, some bitterness and fruity tastes follow. Smooth and perfectly balanced.

M - Medium carbonation and moderately slick mouth feel.

O - Really a great beer.
