500mL bottle, pours a dark orangey brown with a medium beige head. Aroma smells really yeasty and earthy, with earthy hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with a hugely earthy hop component and lots of dirty yeast. Doesn’t seem fully developed or maybe I’ve got an older bottle (no discernible bottling date). Not bad, but not as good as the ratings suggest. Oakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
Red-amber, floral, light citrus, light rambutan, and some chewy malt. Earthy, chewy aroma w very light top notes, like cantaloupe and rambutan. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 14, 2014

2016-05-31. Dark red brown body, nice beige head and lace. 3+ Aroma of malt, touches of caramel may seem stronger due to the brew house being in operation here. Fruity muted melon and fruit. 6+ Flavour is malt forward, caramel touches, fruity hops follow. Green leafy hops, tropical fruit and melon. Average bodied palate, carbonation. Decent take on a hoppy red but is maltier than what I’m in the mood for. 7/3-4/7/3/14+ Bottle at Brothers, Auckland, NZ.

Bottle from The Wine Emporium September 2013. Deep red colour makes for an interesting looking beer. Hoppy and malty all at the same time. TimE (5953) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 22, 2014
Deep amber color. Very sharp piney nose with grapefruit and candided apples with a hint of caramel. The mouth is medium but lacks a bit of balance. Needs a bit more malt. Moderately aggressive finish. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 25, 2014
Aroma is very hoppy, bit earthy, taste has a hint of bitterness, lots of fruit. Bit sweet. Good stuff.
