Poured from can into snifter, coppery color with healthy head, strong hoppy aroma. Tastes great, hidden ABV, pleasantly surprised by this one. Glad I got a 6 pack. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ZacM612 (478) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Mostly clear, copper color with an off-white head. Not a huge aroma, floral and a little sweet. Taste is also somewhat sweet up front with a mildly bitter finish. Medium body. Okay.

12 oz. can, consumed on 12-17-15. Very nice, shiny, copper color. Clear liquid. Really cool tin/taupe-colored head. Large amount of head. In fact, probably an excessive amount, and that might have cost this beer a rare 5 rating for appearance. Produces good, thick, long-lasting lacing. Very good-looking beer, and very much a “red IPA” in appearance. Resiny aroma. Pitted fruit scents: Figs, apricots. Mineral, malty smell. Good, dry, toasty flavor. Tastes like toast with jam. Lemon and peach from the hops as well as sappy pine. Even a hint of bubblegum, surprisingly. Mineral, almost metallic finish. Lightly dry aftertaste. Soft in the palate. Some liveliness but overall seems a bit undercarbonated. The carbonation seems to have formed as head instead of in the form of bringing out the flavor of the beer. I like this beer, and its flavor combination is right in my wheelhouse. I want to like it more than I do, but, ultimately, it is merely “pretty good” and best.

From the can the appearance is dark red with a thick foamy off white head that does not dissipate, the aroma is hops mixed with malts creating a lightly hoped aroma, the taste is crisp and hoppy on the front with a strong malty finish, the mouthfeel is medium to full.
