mdnguyen (31) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2012
The pour: on tap, ruby or copper in colour with thin white head. Nice lacing. The aroma: very hoppy (particularly for Costa Rica), a nice pine with citrus rind and a few metallic notes. The taste: full bodied with a bold bitterness. Finishes dry. The verdict: another great find from CR’s CBC.

A good red. Pours dark golden with white head. Smell is great, hint of bananas. Taste is good, a little fruity, slightly creamy, with a hippy aftertaste. Had on tap at Volcano Brewing Company in Costa Rica. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
