Draft at Vivant. Pours a clear reddish color. Aroma and taste are citrus and some caramel. ARH (1125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 16 oz can poured into a wide, footed flute (Stone?s stemmed IPA glassware). The aroma is a big, roasty, malty caramel with significant bread, grain, pineapple, mango, and a light lactose and grass note. There?s also a faint touch of ash in there, but its fleeting. The beer pours a deep, rich, clear copper red color with a slightly off-white, creamy-soapy head. A decent, uneven - but overall medium thick - soapy ring retains with a puffy island and a good amount of puffy messy lace. The medium bitterness cuts through the medium light sweetness nicely. There?s lots of soft carbonation to this creamy textured beer. The medium malty body finishes with lots of bread crust, caramel, grass, a smokey note, some mellow spice, and a fruit undertone. It’s very smooth. The aftertaste is mostly clean, but there are some light lingering notes of toast, caramel, and ash. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2014
From can. Mild hop aroma on top of caramel and dusty grain. Neutral fruity character. Deep coppery amber clear with thin off-white foamy head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with caramel. Big note of hops, but not hugely bitter. Mild salty element, carbonic tang. Dull bitter finish with muted sweetness. Light caramel after. eaglebones (105) - Michigan, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Can. Nice clear, copper-red color with medium white head and lacing. Aroma is very fruity with yeast underneath. Moderate carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet up front like citrus with hints of cherry, followed by a nice hoppy bitterness that is not long lasting. Nicely done!

Ratebeer is stating this is an IPA. I am unsure if I classify it as that. It does have a bit of hops, but I would state this is more of a red ale. Pours a dark red with a huge frothy head. I can’t pick out unique flavors to it. This is a good beer. Good one for when you want something easy drinking and not too heavy. It does not excel at anything, but would either be a good one to pair with food (that won’t overwhelm the flavors of food), or on a hot day.
I might re-rate this when I have another...maybe one that wasn’t pulled from a cooler (and at a temperature I am more used to drinking) tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2014

Sample at Vivant on 5/17/14. Clear red pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, Belgian esters and grassy hops. Malty and toasty flavor with slight toffee before a grassy hop finish. alliance100 (1137) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2014

Light red color with an off-white head. Aroma and taste match the description to a T: a hoppy red Belgian. Nothing too special, but certainly not bad.
