I got a lot of flowery and soapy flavors, probably from the hops. I was hopping to get more caramelly flavors and some roastiness. Its spiced up and has tu much hops for the style. Its a bit watery too.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Type: 22-oz. bottle
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Alpine Beer Company Pub in Alpine, Calif.
Purchased: Dec. 28, 2014
Consumed: Jan. 2, 2015
Poured a red, auburn semi-clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki-tan, frothy head. Good amount of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Above average sporadic foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Average retention. (Sight - 3.88)
Smelled caramel, chocolate, roasted nuts, toffee, faint coffee malts, dark cocoa, chocolate syrup and light copper. (Smell - 3.88)
Tasted maybe even better than the nose. Very impressive for the style. Got chocolate, bitter roasted nuts, caramel, toffee, copper or another metallic malt, dry rye malts and faint coffee malts. (Taste - 3.88)
Medium body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Nutty, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.75)
This was a very good Irish Red and I’m not saying that just because I live in Alpine. Much better than I thought it would be. (Overall - 3.88)

The beer pours a dark reddish brown with a big head. The aroma has malts first and then some caramel and a little bit of fruit. The taste has a sweetness with malts and plums. Long finish.
