COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wily red IPA gets its character from the Tasmanian hops that are full of grapefruit, pine and earthy notes creating a bold flavor that threads throughout the taste. The hops are balanced by a core of roasty malts that give this brew body and richness with hints of toffee. This flavorful brew is rounded and smooth with a dry and citrusy hop finish.

bottle. like the grumpy monk, and like most Sam Adams beers - pretty underwhelming. A macro trying to make a micro.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark reddish pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of herbal notes in there as well, touch of orange. Taste is a mix of orange, grass, grapefruit, some caramel, toffee into a bit of spice, yeast, finishing slightly bitter, slightly dry.

"this was a pleasant surprise and one i hope makes its way to 6 packs in 2012. beautiful red color with thick tan cap and a ton of lacing. nice, fresh citrus and pine hop aroma with the caramel and biscuit malt in the background. flavor near perfectly balanced. always bitter, but sweet and easy drinking at the same time with the liberal amount of malt flavors as well. very nice. 5-12...super nice in 22s and draft...12 oz mix pack tasted like a lesser beer. WTF?!"
