The red nose pours a clear ruby red with a beige head that lasts a good while. The aroma is grapefruit and loads of hops. The flavor is also grapefruit and hops. Overall this is a nice beer if you enjoy hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

flatmatt (1025) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2013
On tap for the Bellís beer dinner at Grange in Ann Arbor. An amber beer with a white head. Floral and citrus hop aroma. Flavor is also strong on fresh floral and citrus hops with a nice bitterness. Due to the same hops, this was described as being similar to Two Hearted, and thatís quite accurate. Really a great beer; it especially stood out when paired with the cheese at the dinner.

574deadzone (889) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2013
On tap. Pours a brilliant copper/amber/crimson with a fairly substantial khaki head that leaves some intricate lacing. Nose involves some light floral and pine hop notes, toasted malts, and touches of berry-fruit notes. Fairly bitter with some sweetness to balance. Lighter bodied, crisp, vibrant, with a lengthy clean bitterness on the end. Really nice brew, great with pub fare and easy drinking.

deyholla (5974) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a nice grassy hop with a bit of grapefruit and backing grain. Flavor starts with grassy hops but finishes with earthy grain and grapefruit peel.

Draft to taster at Bellís. Looks solid; a transparent copperish-orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes solid too; sweet and pint. Average on the palate. A decent brew.
