12oz can pours with a clear copper body that has golden hued edges and supports a thin light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, crystal malts, a dash of molasses and then thin grapefruit hoppiness. The taste delivers a nice blend of bitter and mildly juicy citrus hoppiness with malts and a crystal malts off in the background. This comes together petty well with a faint but growing earthy tea hoppiness bubbling to the surface from time to time.

Can. Sweet caramel malt aroma with notes of toffee, citrus and pine hops. Pours cloudy caramel colored with a large tan head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with sweet caramel and toffee malt flavors with light citrus in the background. Finishes quite dry and bitter with more citrus hop flavor as well as the pine resin hops bring the bitterness that lingers on the palate long after each sip. Not bad, but very bitter on the ending.

12 OZ can. Rated straight from the can, so I really have no idea about the appearance, but 4 is more or less my default appearance so I’ll give it that. The aroma is somewhat pungent with mixed citrus, toffee and barley. Something of a dank aroma really. The taste, like the aroma, has citrus in the forefront--mostly grapefruit, but also some musk melons and bitter papaya. The malt base is substantial from a palate perspective, but nearly invisible taste wise. One of the best balances of malt to hops in a long time. The palate was full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finished long and dry. Overall: Decent stuff.

Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2017
12 ounce can. Dark rust, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of pine and toffee. The taste is grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel malt. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

2.5
Beaver (1853) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2017
12 oz can. Pours hazy orange red with a big fluffy off white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.



The aroma is sweet nutty grainy caramel malt with some fruity cola.



The flavor is sweet grainy caramel malt with some fruity apple and a slightly harsh ashy green bitter hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit thin.



Overall, too much sweet malt with harsh hops.

AWISLguy (3374) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2017
12 ounce can from Beer Bazaar in Hainesville. Lovin their singles section ... Pours a standard IPA pour with a bit more copper color and an off-white head around the fringes Aroma has sweet malts, sweet fruits, and some pine. Taste is of sweet caramel, sweet fruits and some pine. Medium bodied, or a touch less, the blend is solid and the carbonation is constant. Finishes sweeter than bittersweet. Solid example of a Red IPA 13.5

2.9
thegreenrooster (4585) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 29, 2017
Pour is a redish brown with a large white head. Aroma is a mild soapy hop with some sweetness from the malt. Flavor is again a mild hop and also not much of a malt presence. This was a bit bland and straight down the middle. Not very hoppy, not very malty and not much of anything. The best by date was in June so this is not old but this was a quite uneventful beer.
