Poured into a Stella chalice glass, bottled 1/12/12.
A: Hazy dark copper red color with a fluffy bright light-tan head. Falls to a very frothy head, lots of sticky lacing.
S: Sweet syrupy malt, bready, booze, not a lot of hops in the nose, just a hint of citrus fruit.
T: Sweet caramel, toasted grain, and bitter hops. Right in the middle this beer gets VERY sweet and molasses/maple-like. There is a quick shot of tasty juicy hops before getting very bitter and dry with all grapefruit in the finish. Very malty, some alcohol present.
M: Pretty intense, high biting carbonation, very bitter with a dry finish, but heavy and boozy. Definitely more of a sipper than I expected.
O: I had this beer all wrong, it is a boozy, bitter, and very malty beast of a beer. This is not your hopped up amber ipa crossbreed. Honestly, I feel that it represents it's namesake quite well, both being a shark attack and a double red ale. Although I prefer the hoppier/less malty amber ales, I can't hate on this one for being different.

Hazy red, dark brown, with a three finger high, beige-yellow, creamy head that leaves lacing on the glass.
Nose: A rich, full nose of butter, caramel malt, fudge, grass, raisin, plum, hoppy, resin and grape. I just love that smell!
Taste: Oily with citrus, toffee, caramel malt, creamy taste, raisin, plum, orange marmelade and dried fruit.
A full body with a good, full texture. A great carbonation and a well balanced bitterness.
Just a GREAT beer!
