FEB 2017. Hazy amber pour. World class head volume, lacing and retention.
Outstanding nose of citrus (orange, grapefruit), pine with a good dose of spruce, light pepper and spice over a solid caramel base of toasted biscuit.
Heavy medium body that almost achieves light full. This results in a smooth rich texture that is slick with distinct creamy aspects. World class carbonation / body balance that provides just the right amount of effervescence in both the middle and finish to allow flavor separation and support of the texture.
The flavor profile is outstanding. The balance is world class. Separation is an on going affair that occurs over a mild bitterness that is contrasted with a perfect amount of toasted / nutty sweetness. The citrus aspects of the nose aren’t prevalent, although orange rind is present. Orange becomes more pronounced as it warms, especially towards the finish as sweetness is ascending. Caramel is also less pronounced than expected with toasted biscuit being the base. Cold, spruce / pine hop flavors are most noted. As it warms, these become more competitive with orange rind. The finish is a slow fade of blended hops over a sweet base with a touch of lingering pepper.

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 (605) - 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.
