COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wily red IPA gets its character from the Tasmanian hops that are full of grapefruit, pine and earthy notes creating a bold flavor that threads throughout the taste. The hops are balanced by a core of roasty malts that give this brew body and richness with hints of toffee. This flavorful brew is rounded and smooth with a dry and citrusy hop finish.

Bottle pours deep red with an off-white head. Aroma shows caramel, light roast, pine, and a slight herbal character. Flavor shows the same with more toffee/cookie than caramel, as well as some earthy citrus. Overall body is moderate and the bitterness is fairly balanced.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - FEB 24, 2012
22oz bottle. Pours a clear dark ruby color with over a two finger frothy head and tons of lacing. Aroma is piney and citrusy hops, with some sweet caramel malts as well in the back. Taste is piney, bitter hops up front with some underlying caramel malts. Finishes with floral and piney hoppiness at the end. Slightly oily and resinous. Nice blend of malt and hops.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Garnet body with glimpses of ruby, copper, and scarlet highlights. Grapefruit, caramel, oak, and evergreen in flavor and aroma. Toffee and perhaps even some maple present. Not bad.

Guerde (1161) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2012
(bottle from bhensonb, thanks!) Pours a clear deep red color with a towering tan head and plenty of lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, slightly catty hops, oatmeal raisin cookies, and a bit of green onion and celery. Everything’s fairly subdued, but it’s a really weird combo. Flavor possesses some toasty caramel malt, faint tootsie roll, and some long lingering pine bitterness that really dries the mouth. The flavor is markedly better than the aroma. Mouthfeel is medium to full and carbonation is restrained. Overall this is a simple and straightforward beer, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Bomber pours copper with an off white head. Aromas of citrus pine grapefruit and a tough of bread and cereal. Flavor is bitter with a piney flavor. Body is medium and dry with an astringent feel. Finish leaves some bitterness behind

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 21, 2012
A rich red copper body with a light tan head. The nose was grapefruit and wood. There was also some rich caramel. The taste is bitter with bread crust and some wood. There is also a piney finish. A fairly thick and rich body. Nicely done.

Nephilium (1308) - Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2012
More of a biscuit malt aroma, with a hint of grassy hops in the end. Pours a clear red with a towering light tan head. This is pretty underwhelming, the hops are subdued with more earth characteristics then pine or grapefruit. There is a strong, chewy malt backbone to carry this beer forward. It falls more to the British IPA then the American IPA style. Not terrible, just not what I look for in an IPA.
