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.

Guerde (1165) - 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.
