Hazy brown - red beer. Nice creamy off white head. Soft smooth palate. Toffee caramel malt base for very nice hops. Piney, grassy. Sweet pineapple and a little spice. Whilst your enjoying the hops the malt turns soft and creamy. Finishes soft and fruity. Top notch red.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a rich, maroon-ruby with a sturdy white head. Strong hop aroma, some citrus, and plenty of sweet malts as well. Very sweet flavor, some dark fruit notes. Hints of bitterness sneak through the extremely sweet character of the beer. Body is thick and somewhat syrupy, with a lingering sticky finish. Really intense and really good.

A: The pour is amber though it leans more toward red than anything else. The head has a slightly tan hue and leaves some nice lacing.
S: A blast of dank, juicy grapefruit is the first thing to hit the nose. The intense citrus and pine hop aroma lasts throughout the sniffing process, and is mixed with some brown sugar and caramel.
T: The hop flavors, particularly the grapefruit, are not quite as bitter as I would have expected. There is a definite sweetness to the beer, provided by some caramel malts and a brown sugar taste. There is some decent bitterness on the finish, however.
M: A medium to full bodied beer (for the style, anyway) with a crisp carbonation and bitter finish.
D: The alcohol doesn’t necessarily show itself in the course of the smelling or tasting of the beer, but it does make itself known (and not surprising at 10%). Still a nice beer, but it can sneak up on you.
