Justin put together a nice harmony of hops and malt flavor for Northwest Red, a full bodied red ale hopped with 3 different Northwest hops, relying heavily on Cascade and Willamette for the late hop additions. It’s smooth, full-bodied, hoppy, and finishes up around 5.7% ABV.

Tap. Pours a slightly hazy reddish amber body with a small fizzy beige head that retained as a thin covering. The nose is moderately hoppy with some toasted and caramel malts, smells a bit sweet. The hops are lightly citrusy with a slight leafiness. The flavor is pretty nicely hoppy with a nice bitter snap up front bit it fades to a finish that’s a bit too sweet for my tastes. A lot of caramel malt making it past the hops on the back end. Medium bodied, a bit clingy from both the malt and the slightly resiny hops on the finish. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent overall, but there are a few others on tap at the moment that I’d choose over this one if I were to have another pint.
