Copper amber, slight haze, frothy dense off white head, some lacing

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not the best style out there for a hop head like myself. I normally am not a fan, but this is really nice. Pours a deep mahogany into the tulip glass, medium off white head that dissipates in time, almost no lacing on the glass. Bread, marmalade, hay, some hop resin the in the aroma, taste is similar, but the mouthfeel and finish are both nice and smooth, where most Red or Irish ales can get cloying and over-sweet. Really nice interpretation of the style.
