Bottle. Pours a clear, deep, red amber with fine, light khaki head. Decent retention, settles to thin cap, with some thin lacing. Aroma is hoppy, mild resin, with a nice, sweet malt background. Flavor is hoppy up front, fairly resinous and oily, fading into a subtle malt finish, slight nutty and toffee. Quite hop forward, even for the style, probably why it has rated so highly, damn hopheads! Moderate to strong carbonation, with a medium body, and crisp texture. A tasty, hoppy amber ale, quite good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Letís be clear; this is a red IPA. I know, itís not pale so, IRA? Really nice clean reddish-brown color. Lots of citrus and pine in the nose with only a little onion. Much better carmel malt characteristics than most. Wonderful hop flowery flavors and bitter finish with more pine resin. Thereís really no such thing as a íred ale" style. Even so, this is the best Red Ale Iíve had.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Nice reddish pour with some head. Aroma is slightly underpowered but has notes of piney hops and malty undertones. Taste is a solid malt foundation with some sweet and toasty smooth character, which is punctuated by a piney, slightly bitter hop flavor. Finishes smooth and clean. Balanced. Really quite refreshing and the hop elements adds to the overall flavor profile and drinkability. Certainly one of the better "red ales."
