2.75/5 rDev -22.5%
Poured chilled in ale glass at home
A: dark red, cloudy, very thin head;
S: stale/metallic smell
T: Perhaps out of date, since I'm drinking this in May. Not very malty or sweet; prominent hop profile; baking soda and aged grapefruit, relatively intense; medium complexity; astringent
M: despite the small head, this has a nice buzz
Not a great beer.

Nice amber / copper color with decent head and moderate carbonation. Caramel and floral aroma. Very bitter without a deep complexity of flavor. Peppery spice notes. Mid-glass it almost seems a bit diluted. Drinkability is decent. Yeasty mouthfeel in the aftertaste. We feel this beer needs a bit of balancing. The elements it has alone aren't great in a beer, but coupled with a bit more sweetness and depth it could be very good. Finishes just a bit sweeter.
