Bottle. Pours amber/red, with a small, white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, hops, and alcohol. Flavor is malt, alcohol, fruit, sugar, and hops. Medium body. rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Deep amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet caramel maltiness, toasted bread, and citrusy hops. Chewy caramel and toast on the front fading into resin citrus juiciness. Medium thick body, warming alcohol and a long bitter finish. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a murky deep copper with think tan head that quickly dissipates and some solid lacing. Notes of sweet caramel, burnt toffee, vanilla, citrus, pine, nail polish remover, grain alcohol. Too boozy and slightly astringent for my taste. kassner (1655) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2013
This beer is on tap at Mad mex and what a treat, golden reddish with modest head. Plenty of hops and some good level of malts. the alcohol plays just a little too much but not surprising at this level. jzzbassman (1615) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle tasted at Oxford Tasting Nov 2012. Pours a deep red, with a nice sticky head. Big hop grapefruit aroma. Caramel and citrus hop flavors play nice together, bitterness up front, finishes long with a thick mouthfeel,. Should age nicely.

No idea how this is rated so low. I think it is basically Hopslam with a tad more bite. Savoring my last few bottles. DietPepsican (1590) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - OCT 8, 2012
I can see why people love this, I can see why people hate this. Similar to a 1.5 month old hopslam in the hop profile. Malty, mildly sweet, good carbonation. Juicy hops. Lots of caramel. A bit faded hop character. Basically a good American barley wine, a terrible IPA, and a fantastic double red ale. Hmmmm. geologyguy (1583) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Strong scent of grapefruit, strong taste which is slightly disappointing from the good smell, too bitter :-( jsmerig (1578) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Pours a reddish amber with a thick foamy head. Aroma of sweet fruit citrus fruit and bright hops. Thick. Very bitter but has a serious amount of malt to balance. Robust. Bold. Hearty.

12 oz bottle at Ashleyís Ann Arbor. Amber pour with an off-white head. Sweet hoppy floral, pine, lemon, and orange in the aroma. Sticky sweet grapefruit, orange, pine, and floral flavors as well. Quite intense, fresh, and sweet. Really nice stuff.
