Solid hoppy amber, with piney, mildly citric hops shoring up the big toasted caramel malt base. Grows sweeter as it warms, bringing out the bread and burnt sugar underneath, yet the modest notes of grapefruit don’t prepare you for the unexpected bitchslap of IBUs are ahead. Never grows too bitter, though, finishing balanced, semisweet yet resinous. OnTheTrail (491) - Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2017

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-7-17. Pours a mostly clear but slightly hazy amber to copper with a very large amount of yellowish beige head. Uneven head. Substantial lacing. Would look good, but excessive head is an automatic minus one point for the appearance. Pleasant, biscuit and cracker aroma. Scents of grapefruit and apricot. The lack of sophistication in the aroma becomes more evident on multiple sniffs; it does smell good, but not as good as the first whiff suggested. Pencil shavings. Toast crust. Fruitiness upon multiple sips: Strawberries or raspberries and cream. Pretty darn dry. Flat liquid in the palate, likely due to the excessive head. Easy to drink. Essentially a red IPA, it seems. My kind of beer, but imperfectly executed. The hops are fruitier and juicier than I would prefer, a problem that afflicts all too many hoppy beers these days.

Tap at BeerTemple, 16th February 17. Pours an amber colour, good head. Aroma is hop forward, bitter, floral, kind of smells like a Sixpoint beer. Taste is hoppy, citrus, bitter, good malt balance. Pretty good.

Light brown colour with quick fading head. Aroma and flavour have an abundance of resinous hop. Also lots of malt. Really full bodied and flavoursome. tderoeck (9471) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2017

Can from Julio’s. Pours out a hazy burnt light orange amber. Frothy off white head settles to a thick lace. Herbal-pine-spice aromas. Tasty with layers of herbal-earthy pine spice with hints of fruit and citrus. Light sweet roasty malts balance this nicely. radagast83 (8006) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2017
Split a can with a friend. Poured a cloudy red color with a larger head than I expected. Aroma was citrus, light resin. Flavor was light pine, some sweet malts, earthy finish. Floral hop leaves are in there too. Better than I expected it to be, but still just okay.
