Draft sample at RBWG 2011 from notes. Pours a clear dark reddish amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have grapefruit citrus, resin, herbal hop character, caramel malt, some mild spicy notes. The fruit character grows in this. Interesting collaboration. hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2011
on tap during beer week 3/5/11.
amber color... ow head. decent retention.
aromas and flavors of caramel mostly... folowed by hoppy spiciness, green, resin, dank and candy. two times i had this (out of ten or so) it had a buttery quality which was really off putting. even without this the mouth feel was still quite oily. odd. 6/3/6/3/14--

Deep copper with creamy tan head and lace. Aroma of large resiny hops and sweet caramel. Sweet caramel with a nice resiny finish and a bit unusual musty finish. Medium bodied but a bit fizzy. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2011

(On draught at Papago). Pours clear mahogany with off-white head. Aroma has lots of fruity, citrusy hops. Also, some pine/wood. Taste is malt sweet with bright hop bitterness. Medium bodied with sticky texture. Finish is dry and bitter. This is a good beer and a great showing by the AZ brewing crew. Cheers, guys and well done. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2011
Sampled @ AZ Strong Beer Fest...aroma of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. Flavor shows a bit of hops but predominately roasted malt, candied sugar, and citrus. Medium to light mouthfeel. Love the collaboration concept, just not the final product. Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2011
Draft at RBWG Grand Tasting. I ened up having WAY more of this (and the Red Poppy, and the Chili Pepper Speedway) than were good for me. Pours clear red, thick white head, spotty lacing. Nose is spicy grapefruit, some red lollipop, Nelson Sauvin dominated, seemingly. Great body and richness, light and surprisingly dry red fruit, spicy grapefruit, great stuff!
