GABF 2006: Dark hazy amber color with an off-white head. Big hop foward aroma but with enough sweet malt to back it up. The flavor starts out with pine and malt and then becomes all hop. Medium bodied and very tasty. Big but still balanced.

On draft at Solana Beach Pizza Port. Clear toffee brown color with garnet highlights... not unlike rootbeer in appearance. toasty malty nose. Incredible depth of hoppiness and malt flavor in waves - and amazing number of waves of flavor. a taste sensation.

Draft at Solana Beach while drinking and hanging with bager. Nice red pour with not much head. Lots of hop aromas with some caramelish malts too. Flavor was very malty up front with very juicy hops in the finish. Citrusy bitter aftertaste. Wonderful. It was great meeting you Lars. Who knows, maybe we will have the chance to meet again.

On tap at Pizza Port Solano Beach. This brownish red ale poured with no haed at all. There is an initial malty flavor with a massive hoppy finish. The high alcohol content is not evident in the taste, which is full and smooth.

This is one of my very favorites from Pizza Port. Reds aren’t supposed to be this hoppy. I am very glad it is. This stuff will grow hair on your nipples.

Bottle from a west coast trade. Big blast of hops and some rye like grains. Sweet
malts help to even out some of the hops. I wish I had access to this as it would be in my fridge every day. Very refreshing and tasty.
