Tease. :P


Seriously though, that sounds like a pretty cool recipe, although you may end up with less aroma/flavor that expected with only one late addition. Then again, it might be amazing. *shrug*

Yeah you make a valid point. From the taste tests it seems like it has a very nice malt character which is what I was aiming for being this a red and all. There may be room for a little more in the aroma department. I will trying it tomorrow so I will let u know.

Had a nice tasting of this today. I must say I was very happy with how this turned out. Very easy drinker with a solid nose and a nice malty characteristic.

In regards to the comments on the amount of late hops used. I don't know that I would choose to use more hops at the end next time but I may use a hop with a more citrusy note. While the aroma was present it was slightly bland. I suppose that works well for a nice session red, but if I wanted give it a little something extra that is what i would probably consider.

Here it is finally...Had a family gathering on Sunday for the Pats game and was left with only two bottles of this afterwards so I guess people must have enjoyed it.
