Served from the bottle into a nonic glass

A- Poured a dark red color with one finger soapy off-white head. Left minimal lace

S- Huge grapefruit aroma, sweet tropical fruits, pine, breadiness, caramel. Very astringent and sweet aroma. This beer smells amazing.

T- Sweet grapefruit and floral notes. Bready and caramel notes with a spicy finish. An intensely bitter beer, high astringency, and sweet hop presence

M- High carbonation, tongue tickling, smooth, finishes dry

O- This beer has an amazing aroma and maybe the best aftertaste of any beer I have ever had, this beer stays with you. Really great beer.

On tap in a pint glass.

A- Very hazy dark amber. Cant see through at all
S- Astringent hops and a bunch of sweet caramel. Smells just like their Centennial IPA to me.
T- LOTS of grapefruit in this one as well as other citrus tones. Can definitely taste a variety of sweet malts in this one.
M- Good carbonation and mouthfeel, reminds me a lot of their Centennial IPA only with more citrus. A dry aftertaste.
O- This is a very good, unique rye/red/PA mishmash that's definitively worth trying especially if your an IPA lover

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Cloudy deep ruby toned amber. Small off-white head. Nice.

S: Initially a lot of bright citrus aroma. Mellows out to reveal dark fruit, dried banana, and spicy malt.

T: Spicy and very hopped. Tea, bitter citrus, some rock fruit.

M: Very astringent. Highly carbonated but densely so. Good.

D: Excellent beer. Good deviation from IPA doldrum.

Pours a non transparent deep burnt orange, with quarter inch of head and terrific lacing.

Smells of citrus and slight malt sweetness.

The taste is of citrus peels with malty sweetness and hop bitterness. Also slight flavors of the belgian yeast.

This has a thick feel to it but nice and smooth also.

Overall this is a very good beer I really like the hop flavoring in the aftertaste nice citrus flavor with great flavoring all the way thru. I would buy this again
