This was the brain child of brewer Todd. It has a nose of grapefruit and is crimson colored. Flavor is hoppy and grapefruity, and delicious. Please try this if you see it in the wild.
Crisp, clear golden coloured body with a thinnish, just off-white head. Aroma of honey, grain, alcohol, perfume and a bit of astringent and medicinal notes. Medium-bodied; Strong super floral and herbal flavours with a big dose of lavender and dry grass along with some sugars and a big heaping of alcohol right behind, along with the associated bitterness and astringent flavours. Aftertaste shows more of a malt body, with more of a decidedly earthy and grainy malt flavour along with some more flowers and dryness and a good deal of alcohol at the end with a tiny amount of residual sweetness. Overall, a decent beer that shows some of a few styles, but most evident here is a herb/spice/veg, which this should be categorised in, instead of a ’fruit beer’ which this shows nothing of the sort. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 31-May-2017 for US$2,15 sampled at home in Washington on 08-July-2017. katrinaez (2307) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2017
Nice sweet IPA. Almost a blood orange, hibiscus tea herbal floral scent and flavor. Nice medium level of hops. Cloudy pink orange. Almost a sugar cookie flavor at the end. Tap westknife (80) - New York City, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2017
Not bad for like a novelty/fruit beer. I only vomited 8 or 9 times during drinking. hershiser2 (3698) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2017
$2.25 bottle from Beer Run. Pours golden with what appears like a dozen or so chunks of tea leaf floating in the glass, small white head. Aroma at first is somewhat floral, but turns medicinal, fruity, hint of honey. Flavor is interesting: definitely herbal/medicinal notes along with some sweet fruit, honey, and pine. Pretty good. crossovert (14006) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2017
Draft. This was fruity and cocktail-like grapefruit, spices, citrus, not horrible.
