Hesitant to try this blind being a sixer and all, wow. Outstanding beer. I am thrilled that I have 5 more after this. A red IPA is the best definition and name. Really, really pleased with this.

Can - good size foamy head, sweet grapefruit hop aroma and flavor, sweet caramel malt backbone (a little too sweet), very mild bitter finish, ok overall

Poured from can, pours a clear dark copper with a creamy off white head, aroma is of sweet malt and caramel, no hop presence at all, flavor is pretty bad, infected maybe, starts out sharp and bitter with a nail polish like finish, kind of burns, ugh. drpimento (3714) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Based upon appearance and aRoma I thought I might be onto a hidden gem here. Poured with a large cream colored head that went away after a bit, plenty of lace and a clear honey colored amber color. Aroma is hops fruit malt. Flavor is not nearly as good as aRoma. Quite dry, medicina,l new leather, a bit astringent, not so good. Body suffers a little from the weird bitter astringency.

From can. Pours a pretty amber with a touch of tan head that quickly dissipates. Malty nose. Caramel and grass in the taste. Lack of balance is off putting--kind of like a loud stereo on a chopped Honda Civic--too much bottom. Clean finish. Decent red, but not a lot of ipa qualities in this one.

Cara-amber with a rocky beige crown. Aroma of toffee, dusty malts and citrus underneath. Taste is sweet and fruity with toffee, citrus, caramel and a mild bitter finish. CanIHave4Beers (4194) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Live Rate from my phone? Why the F not? Pours a brownish red with a big but spotty head. Aroma offers caramel & toasted malts. Aroma also offers some citrus & piney hops. Flavor offers a good bit of astringency... Some hop fruitiness is offered as is a good dosing of toasty and caramelly malts. boozedude (2228) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - OCT 20, 2013

Can. Deep orange pour with a cream colored head. Musky caramel malt and sharp grassy hops. Not my favorite.
