The brew has a reddish tint go it. The smell is straight up hoppy like a good red ale should be in my opinion. Grapefruit, pine, and citrus mixed in with a bit of caramel malt. The taste starts off that way to but quickly changes to dark fruits. Like the brew has two parts. Itís unique. Not something Iíve had before and really enjoyed it. Would easily pick up more of this stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep ruby color with amber/white head. Smell is juicy, pomegranate and caramel. Floral, hoppy taste, light bitterness, almost like an english IPA. Notes say "good, not PP good." What does that mean? Oh, price point, Iíd bet.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is just a great beer collaboration from some great brewing companies, and it is my favorite from 21st amendment. There is nothing there beer does wrong. Letís start first with the color. Itís perfect. Yes I gave appearance a 5/5. Itís the most perfect dark copper color you ever did see. OK. next up is the taste. Itís amazing. Sweet and hoppy and warm with alcohol. It makes me happy. Lastly, the packaging is awesome. This matters. Buy a couple cubes and stick a red bow on the top. Makes a great christmas gift. Share the gift of good beer this holiday season.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep ruby, almost purple hues with a healthy two finger tan cap and consistent lacing. Smells of fresh pitted fruits, some caramel and toffee to support. The flavor is dominated by plums, caramel and a heap of obvious dates. The hops pull through all of this in a surprising way. The feel is a bit thinner than I would normally associate with these bold flavors profiles. Overall, itís a unique beer that deserves its position in 21st Amendmentís seasonal lineup.
