Red pour with a thin head. Aroma is very hoppy. Lots of citrus. Full mouth. Taste is dank, sweet and little bitter. Lingering funk. Really easy to drink. Alcohol is well hidden. Lots of lace. This is an excellent double red ale.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The beer pours a nice amber color, with nice off-white lacing. After tasting, it is immediately apparent that this beer is closer to an IPA than a red ale. Nonetheless, the flavor profile is excellent. Flavors of citrus and subtle pine-notes are offset nicely by the malty, sweeter profile of the red ale. This is one of the best beers I’ve tasted in this category.

The color out of the can is unbelievable. A bright copper that keeps a sticky compact head. Aroma is dank hops and caramel. The taste is out of control. Resin hops, toffee malt and berries take hold. This leads to a lingering aftertaste, but in a really great way. Great beer.
