Thaks to Tyrone for the growler and eric for the many samples on tap at his house. Pours a medium to deep amber, hazy with a nice lasitng head. Aroma is american citric hops- hint sof metallic earhty citrus cascades, some sweet orangey citrus centennial and possibly grapefruit pine columbus hops- with a crystally caramel malt. Good thick sweet caramel malts, but a bit too sharp with too dark crystal malts, buttery caramel with molasses, with all the citrusy hops- orange and a bit of cat pee./ Relatively smooth with a decent tacky bitterness in the end. This was a pretty good double red.

Tap @ Sly Fox. The beer poured a clear red color with an off-white head. There was a malty caramel arom with notes of earthy and sweaty hops. The flavor was mildly sweet from malt. The hop flavor grows steadily from the middle to the finish and lasts well past the malt. The finish was long a big on the bitterness with some alcohol warmth.

On tap at Phoenixville location.....mahogany in color, with minimal foam...a flush of bitter dry hops, followed by a strong citrus peel....seed flavor of grapefruit, orange, and lemon, all the tangy citrus friends hanging in a glass together, lemon seed the leader, muddled malt and hop aroma, nothing too unusual...dry and tasty, hoppy and racy
