4.23/5 rDev +9.6%
22oz bottle dated 1/3/14 poured into a tulip
A: More brown than red with a two-fingered head
S: Caramel, burnt grains, burnt citrus peel, a touch earthy
T: Everything in the smell but amplified. Toasty, caramel, toffee, malt, hops yet all balanced
M: Medium-bodied, balanced
O: The toasted/burnt component comes across most but everything is balanced. Quite a tasty brew

22oz bottle to my FW snifter glass
Notes taken on 02/13/14
Been a while since having this one…now available at Costco!
A: Pours a murky looking amber color with some rusted orange and brown hues. Thick topping of stubborn khaki suds forms with incredible hang time. Fully laces the glass with the sticky stuff after each sip.
S: Smells strongly of piney resinous hops with some earthiness and a bit of spiced grapefruit. There is some mild underlying malt toffee and raisin bread like qualities. More sugary citrus peel than anything however. Much better than I had remembered. Very vibrant with the hoppy goods.
T: Flavors pack a big hop bitter punch. Oily and resinous with citrus, pine, and floral character. Grapefruit and tangerine meets with some spice and more flowery hop goodness. Malt is there with some subtle bread and toffee sweets but it plays second fiddle to the hops. Alcohol makes a showing towards the finish but it is kept pretty well in balance throughout. The fruit is expressive in this one and the beer has a long lasting bitterness. Creamy and delicious this is really hitting the spot!
M: Moderately full feel with a frothy light texture from the carbonation. Intense puckering bitterness and some mild ABV warmth. Dry towards the finish with an oily linger that carries on afterwards.
D: A nice revisit as this one had really exceeded my recollections. This bottle was either uber fresh or Shark Attack is just way better than I had remembered it to be. Would recommend for a nice hoppy Amber.

3.1/5 rDev -19.7%
Appearance: Red appearance, lingering head, great look to this beer.
Smell: Quite floral in the hop character.
Taste: Different from the nose, the taste of the hops struck me as perfume-y and bitter. I did not dig the heavy bitter lack of balance.
Mouthfeel: Pretty heavy body.
Drinkability: For every red beer fan like myself, I’m sure there’s someone who loves this. But for me, Shark Attack is just so, so. (Perfume-ey hops don’t anything for me)
