look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from their 12oz bottle from their beer camp sampler...

Appearance - Poured nearly 3 fingers of lite-orange khaki colored head, already lacing as the head begins to recede a bit, color of the body is almost red but really more of a burnt orange color, incredible zebra-striped lacing coats the entire glass after the session.

Smell - Sweet, ripe red ruby grapefruit, fresh baked bread, fruitcake, full bready malt, figs, ripe plums, slight floral hops - really smells good.

Taste - Wow, HUGE floral hops at the front, ripe ruby red grapefruit juice, bready malt and breadcrusts. All this rides along a backbone of slightly burnt toffee, and faint figs and ripe plums. Longer into the finish is grapefruit pith and a second huge burst of floral hops.

Mouthfeel - Very smooth at the beginning, nearly medium, then a just below medium carb does a light scrub on the palate, with some surprisingly sharp edges at the sides of the tongue, the finish is on the bitter dry side, but there are still some dark fruits and hops in the mouth corners, flavors linger way long...extraordinarily drinkable, although I find myself contemplative after each sip...

Overall - Really complex and well balanced brew, and a very pleasant surprise, really has the best of a dipa, an apa, and a red ale all rolled into one. Big bold flavors, not overly sweet - a really nice beer to enjoy with the onset of the cooler weather - enjoying this one during Monday Night Football - get the sampler pack, I think you'll like this one.
