An English version of a red, enjoyed at the brewpub. A finish without as much hop as I would expect from 40 IBU. Reddish tinged.

Could have been this was fresh from the kettle, but this was distinct in that it had a great head and lots of lacing, deep orange amber colored and very full flavorand well balanced. Plenty of malt and hops start to finish

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was able to sample a dry-hopped strong version of their classic Patriot Ale. Spicy hop profile both citrus and catty, unique to this nose and well received. Amber pour of course with a sizable head and stringy lacing. Very bitter mouth feel, medium bodied with a hoppy aftertaste. Gritty sugar and doughy malt with a green and assertive hop flavor. Toast and toffee seem to be in abundance as well.
