This beer is 8% ABV with 110 IBUs. Our Citra hops are balanced with Munich malts, resulting in a deliciously hoppy yet smooth brew!

A little boozy and off balance. Pours amber with OK head and lacing. Decent hop showing and citrus. Finish a touch sour. Can from Total Wine.

12oz can thanks to nimbleprop, pours a clear bright Amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of sweet caramel with citrus hops and melon. Citrus and melon ride straight up the palate, some cotton candy, and finishing with caramel malt and a light bitterness. Alright.

jgb9348 (4925) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Super rich and hazy copper, orange and bronze coloured body with an almost ruby tint and a rich, slightly frothy tan head. Aroma of alcohol, hops, toffee, rich malts and a heavy dose of bitterness all around. Medium to Full-bodied; Rich malty flavour with some nuts, earth, caramel, toffee and of course hops tucked in. Aftertaste doesnít show much complexity, but shows some depth, especially with the malt bill and the rich toffee and sweetness - nice and full-bodied with solid flavours that donít bitter or make the flavour pungent. Overall, a rather nice beer with a full body and a well-rounded, balanced flavour that isnít surprising, variable or evolutionary, just a well-produced beer with good flavours that hits the style well - Iím pleasantly surprised. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-November-2014 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington on 29-December-2014.

Canned. Reddish brown pour. Malty sweetness leasing to a fairly hippy finale. Decent.

rosenbergh (7642) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Draught at the Shenandoah Hops, Staunton, VA. Dark red colour with a small head. Absolutely intense fruity hoppy aroma. I don't normally dig Red Ales but this one kicks ass. Very fruity, very hoppy, very strong and absolutely tasty. Great stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured at GABF and drank at GABF...I was volunteer pouer. Damn good brew here. Huge IBU yet so well balanced. Rich malty brew but better yet the fresh hops plowing through!!! Hard to tell it was 8%. Superb brew.

Dried leaves, pepper, wormwood nose, a little vegetal. Clear tea colored, thin yellow head. Cherries, oak, boiled cabbage. Tangy, medium body, viscous. Sampled from a growler that wasnít sanitized. It was rinsed thoroughly and the beer was sampled less than 6 hours from filling. I donít think this is all the growlerís fault.
