3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Xpress Food Store: Poured a dark amber red hue with a broken up patch of foam topping for a head. Aroma is mild with a decent amount of hops and malts but nothing substantial. Flavors are simple with a hoppy profile paired with a fair amount of sweet malting. Okay but nothing I would ever buy again.

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.

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.

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.

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.
