355ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep copper, with a large off-white head, which offers excellent retention and lacing. Melon, grapefruit and floral hops aromas mingle with buttered toast and toffee malt notes. Potent tropical fruit and grapefruit hops up front segue eassily into full-bodied toffee malt, with some nutty notes coming through. There is a touch of sweetish caramel leading into the finish, which brings more tropical notes and a touch of pine. There is a faint aftertaste of toasty malt. I have to say this is one of the best examples of the imperial/India red ale style I have had. It is an absolute study in balance between fresh, fruity hops and smooth, full-bodied malt. Great stuff.
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, pine and citrus. Flavor of pine, citrus, caramel, grapefruit, and had a hint of toffee. phaleslu (10264) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2015
12 oz. bottle from DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a clear reddish amber color with a big frothy off-white head that laces the glass. Notes of caramel and amber malts, citrus fruits, grass, sugars, soap, and some toast on the finish. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty, bitter mouthfeel. Has held up better than expected. Good beer. Andrus86 (650) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2015

"2nd beer tried out of 2012 mixer, and another winner. Malt-wise reminds me of a Tahoe Red...nutty and slightly sweet. Dark. The hops are almost in contrast but it works really well, and the brewer’s description is spot on...peach and grapefruit dominate the hops. Nice brew."

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear red pour with a very thick tan head. Floral and peppery aroma with a dry citrus note. Flavor is rather dry and astringent with a lingering peppery hop flavor. Probably a bit past its prime but still not bad. Hoppsan (151) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2014
