Bottle from Wegmans. Malty nose, caramel, some chocolate, earthy hops. Malty flavor, caramel, nice citrus, some pine. Really just like a hoppy brown to me. Not very impressive.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a burnt siena brown with highlights of red. Finger breadth of nice foamy eggshell colored head. Citrus and floral hops (mostly grapefruit/tangerine) abound in the nose. Molasses tinged malts with subtle hints of burnt sugar and sweet breads. Pretty dry red IPA with a chewy mouthfeel and lingering bitterness. Light, clean metallic after taste. Nice beer in a crowded space, but won’t knock your socks off.

Nice amber color with low head. The smell is minor and is quickly taken over by the strong flavor, but is slightly spoiled by the stinging aftertaste.

Draft at the Cincy Brew Ha Ha. Couldn’t believe I’d never tried this before after passing it up so many times. Anyway, pours a nice amber color with an off-white head that lasts. Notes of citrus and tropical fruits, spices, grass, straw, toast, pine, caramel, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a soft, resinous, malty, spicy mouthfeel. Really nice red IPA.

Weak aroma. I taste alcohol and a little hops in the background. A lot of bitterness with no character.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 8/23/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours clear dark amber with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to sticky lace with an average collar. The nose is really nice citrus, tropical fruit, , a touch dank, and plenty of pine resin hops, with some dark bread malt. The flavor is the same diverse, very balanced hops profile with a bit more of a toasty bread malt presence. The body is medium with just above average, stinging carbonation, and a long toasted malt and bitter resin and citrus peel hops finish.
