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.

Batch 1. 22oz bottle. Deep Ruby color, light tan head of thick foam. Aroma of spicy malts, heavy deep caramels, earthy pine hops. The smell alone reminds me of the aroma of the Rogue Brewery the first time I walked in. Mmm, good. Nice pine and grapefruit, heavy malts, all around. The flavor continues to deliver. Toasted malts, heavy toffee, deep grain character. Bitterness lingers on the palate, nice grapefruit, with an odd medicinal hop note. So well done, very impressive. Loads of toasted malts, then the leather character, and pine bark bitterness... superb! I absolutely loved this brew. Merry Christmas to me.

Bottle. Poured clear brownish copper color with a large frothy off-white head with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex earthy and roasted malt aroma. Medium to full body with a soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bittersweet flavor finish. This beer exceeded my expectations.

superspak (4672) - Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2011
22 ounce bottle, batch 1, no bottle date. Pours crystal clear dark red orange color with a nice 2 finger dense khaki head with incredible retention that reduces to thick lacing cap that lasts forever. Some nice lacing clings around the glass as well. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange, light pine, caramel, toasted malt, bread, and spiciness. Nice and well balanced aromas with good strength. Taste of big pine, orange, caramel, spices, bread, toasted malt, and honey-like sweetness. Nice amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, orange, pine, and spices on the finish that last. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy mouthfeel that drinks very easily. Great balance between sweetness and bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming on the finish. Overall this is an absolutely outstanding amber ale/IPA. So much great hoppy flavor and balance.

You either love the malty syrupy flavor or not. It does seem like a cross between a UK style malty base or extract syrup that didnít boil totally! The hops bring an assertive piney grapefruit mix to the sweet base which I really like despite the weird malty flavor I detect and think I recognize from brews I sampled in England once upon a time. There is this cinnamon spice character which others may not like but I like that too. If anyone has a clone recipe, beermail me!

Spicy hops mix with a malty backbone in the aroma. The flavor is tangy and spicy that lead to a dry finish. Very good IPA, a bit off the beaten path and unique.

Nice red color with a big creamy head. Aroma is citrus and sweet. Pretty sweet flavor with some roast in there. The finish is grapefruit and lingers for quite a while. Mouth feel is almost syrupy. A sugary taste comes out a bit after a few drinks. Nice lacing in the glass.
