Bitterish bretty hop. Light fruit. Crisp minerally dry finish. Bitter linger. Highly unusual beer but I would expect no less of this cutting edge brewer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours "rose" (pronouncing rozay) with a whitish head. Deep inhale provides citrus? hop with some vinosity. Near med body. Flavor is a mix of red wine with some malt and hop that does seem to be citrus. It’s fairly dry, and decently bitter. Rather sophisticated. Damn. Return of the wine snob. I do like it.
