3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a deep reddish brown body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is sweet grapefruit, spice and light caramel malt. Mouthfeel is medium and slick with notes of sweet honey covered grapefruit, spice, grain, bitter hop and light rye(?) maybe. Decent IPA.

"My buddy liked this one a lot. I thought it was just pretty good. I like the balance between big hops and malt in red IPA’s...this one just didn’t quite hit it. It may have been better without the spicy rye, which took over a little. Too many great IPAs on this trip for this one to stand out."

Medium dark amber color. Huge spicy nose. Damn big hops, with candy floss and apples. Big hoppy mouth with medium backbone. Very spicy, tons of rye in this beer. Lovely big bitter finish.
