ron - I stopped by my LHBS on the way home from work last night to pick up a couple singles of Red Seal Ale for "research" since you mentioned it.

Wow - its probably been 8 or so years since I had it, but that is a very well done beer.  It won't be 8 years again, I can tell you that.

That was something more in the vein of what I am trying to accomplish.  Will need to explore some more.

I figured you would like it. I am also very much impressed with that beer. What a nice AAA.  :)

Have you ever tried North Coast Red Seal Ale? It has a generous hop flavor and aroma. I'm uncertain of their hop schedule but wouldn't be surprised to learn that they dry hop that beer. It's one of my favorite AAA's

Love this beer.  My most recent amber came out really good.  I did not dry hop it though.  I may tweak the recipe again and dry hop it the second time around.  I did, however, do a fair amount of late hopping in the boil.  I also got a nice flavor from the Special Roast.
