a: Very dark amber color, served to me with one finger of long lasting white foam.
s: Lots of fresh, prickly tropical fruit blunted by bracing caramel sweetness.
t: Big, beautiful hop flavor. Lots of grapefruit and lemon rind. Very pungent and skunky. Lots of caramel and hints of honey and tea weighed things down a bit.
m: Chewy and creamy.
o: I liked this one a lot for sure. It comes in just a half a tick below my favorite hoppy SN ofeerings like Hoptimum, Ruthless Rye, and celebration though.
Serving type: on-tap

This American Amber or Red Ale, is a interesting combination of beers styles that i approve of, though i am not a beer chemist, it sparked me to call a friend of mine who is, to have them explain this flavor to me. It is defiantly better then i thought it would be, although I had no idea what to expect from a 'red ipa' i was impressed with Sierra Nevada's Flipside. Its smokey dark appearance was a interesting factor, but its smell, was the sort of beer I wish they would bottle and smell as an AXE body spray. The mouth feel and taste where both outstanding in my opinion and I did really like this beer.
