Strong hops and slightly spicy. Faint aroma but bold flavor. Medium weight and very drinkable. Good malt base to add bready flavors. Goes well their pizza.

27th May 2015: on my second flight of beers at the other Carlsbad Pizza Port (but brewed at Bressi according to the beer board). Hoppier than most ’reds’ I have tasted but with plenty of maltiness too. Mild citrus notes play with sweeter fruits while the semi-sweet malts balance out the brew nicely.
