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. Dark ruby, thick beige head, lots of lacing. Aroma: candy, soapy, lavender. Taste: candy, licorice, earthy, soapy, caramel. Medium-bodied. For someone with a sweet tooth. Just a bit too soapy though.

I appreciate that it's a unique IPA and has a unique hop with an intentional malt. However, it's just not that tasty/drinkable even though taste-filled. In a bottle in SoCal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quick3Beers (631) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2016
A weirdly malty IPA, lots of grapefruit in the nose and something else I couldn’t quite pick out, very familiar and nostalgic. Good beer.

Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Hazy Dark Red Amber Color, Medium Head, Light Thin Lacing. Faint Floral Hop Aroma. Malt, Floral Hop, Moderate Bitter. Better Than Their Regular Lineup but not Really Up To Par With Good Little Guys. OK.

DWestrick (557) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2015
bottle. like the grumpy monk, and like most Sam Adams beers - pretty underwhelming. A macro trying to make a micro.

red color; citrusy hop aroma with underlying caramel malt notes; bready malt with a good deal of hoppy bitterness; nice piney, citrus hop flavor with a solid caramel malt background and a very bitter, dry finish; notes of caramel toffee, and dark bread

Rated from notes taken 1 Apr 2012 -- Had this beer the night before my first TDY. A very nice Red. A very nice IPA. Combine the two and you have a damn good beer.
