Gorgeously muddy body of dark coppery rust topped with a large and thickly lush smoothed foam of dark ivory hue. The cap stays with might and the glass laces out with lots of tattered sheeting.

Aroma is fairly pungent of piney sided dry hops, cedar notes mostly, dry and earthy with a touch of spruce, rye, and deep black tea, spiced lightly with white pepper, and spritzed with a dash of lemon.

Taste has a nice offering of dry spicy rye, red malt, and cedar backed by a mellowed dry caramel smoothness and toasted breadyness. Alluring white pepper, black licorice, and black tea add some nice depth to its bold rye and red malt snappy drying nature. It really holds itself on the palate well with its dryness as it lasts forever and a day saying hello in that very present Red ale way.

Bold medium body with lots of complexing dryness and balanced in earthy spice holds surprising length and makes a great warming impression of spruce and cedar as ya get into it.

One very solid Red ale that definately has the stamp of West Coast on it. Drinks down quite well.
