Solid big red IPA. Huge blast of caramel, pine, and citrus. Some sweet malts. but good bitterness that wasn’t too over the top (as I feared). Solid stuff.

Great. Aroma of hops and toasted grain. Redish brown. Taste cedar, roast beef, grapefruit, bitter, mild sweetness, earthy. Medium/thicker mouthfeel. Little alcohol taste for a 10 percenter. Outstanding.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster at the brewery. Amber color with nice tan head. Aroma is caramel and intense peaches cat piss hops (buckets of Simcoe?) Taste is more caramel, a bit overripe fruit, not too balanced to be honest. I usually like this style but this one could be much better.

7/4/15. On tap, Craft on Draft. Red pour with a nice khaki head, great lacing. Good aroma, citrus, pine, a nice balance of caramel and pale maltiness. Good flavor, balancing bitterness helps the maltiness and caramel, nuttiness, doughy, citrus, pine. Tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: moderate haze, red brown, medium head and nice lace. Honey malt, hops, dense but not lifted. Dry, not sour but very bitter. Loads of flavor. Lacks fruit but very intense hops and malt. Very high CO2 that provides a freshness you would not expect at this alcohol level.
Very good. Not great.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very smooth, easy drinking beer for its strength and bitterness. Actually it seems quite well balanced.
