Shark Attack Double Red Ale

22 oz bottle, Arbor Place Beverage, Douglasville, GA, USA.
Very typical for the style, a cloudy and turbid brown soup like affair with some big, rocky, pitted, off-white head and lace. Retention is not great. It’s a bit of an ugly looking beer for me.
Nose and tastes deliver typical big, hoppy alcohol notes, and there is the requisite dry finish.
Strangely, the alcohol is fairly well hidden during the drink, but in the aftertaste and at the end the beer packs its’ full punch. The combination of the dry character (good) and the somewhat overbearing alcohol (bad), make this a one and done beer for me.
Not a bad example, but it’s too aggressive for me and I found it a bit muddled and lacking focus.
