Growler courtesy cbfobes! Amazing tropical fruit aroma with grapefruit, pineapple, guava, and more - reminds me of CCB Jai Alai. Sweet hoppy flavor loaded with tropical fruits, chocolate, and more... this is really fucking good. Holy shit. triguy84 (235) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Wonderful hop aroma with a hint of malt. Spot on color and head. Tasty hop flavors balanced with the malt. Spot on medium body and hop bitterness. Not Bad, can’t wait for this to come back. jmagnus87 (3302) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2013
From notes. Draft at Vintage. This is a kickin brew. Loads of tropical fruits and citrus mixed with some chocolate. Interesting and awesome! cbfobes (2888) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2010
On tap at Vintage, pours a dark amber with a nice fluffy white head, the aroma has a great mix of sweet malt and hops to it, the taste is nearly perfect with the hop bitterness and the malt, this is worth alone coming to Vintage! arkurzynski (2460) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2010
On tap. Nice deep red-orange in color. Aroma is bursting with Northwest, grapefruit hops. Decent caramel and toasted malt background, but the grapefruit bitterness and finish are the showcase. Excellent.

On draught at the Vintage Brewing Company’s brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Attended their Grand Opening on May 2, 2010. This red ale pours a clear reddish amber colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a thin ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of heavy Cascade, Chinook and Cluster hops. Lot of citrus with a hint of caramel malt. Taste is fruity citrus with a hint of tangerine and caramel malt, Finish has a surprise light finish in texture but still the flavor strength of a strong Pale Ale. Of of my favorites of the Grand Opening event. Gespuccian (144) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Pours golden red, with light, tan head. Nose is hops right off the bat. Identifiable by the nose in a tasting flight. Pine, resin, a touch of grapefruit. Taste is hop-forward, with more of the same pine a citrus, but there’s a thin, mellow caramel malt backing it up. Finishes smooth and light, with hoppy bitterness and crispness. This is a nice beer. madvike (3306) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2010
On tap at the Grand Opening - Pours amber, with a very small white head. Nicely hopped, with light spiciness and fruit on the nose, and just a bit of malt poking through. The hops are smooth and balanced in the taste, and it’s fairly grassy and fruity. Sweet malt integrates well with the hops, and everything just seems to fit. Smooth and well-carbonated--I liked this one. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is red tinged amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is exceptionally fruity with underlying notes of caramel and light earth. Flavor shows grapefruit, pineapple, and light berry sitting on top of a fairly substantial malt profile. Overall body is moderate and finishes with some nice clean bitterness.
