Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
Catch you on the Sierra Nevada red IPA. No panache. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunrise cherrywood topped by a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, light pine sap, caramel, mild maple syrup, and a touch of grass. The taste brings in more of the same, the caramel and maple boldly defending against the massive onslaught of pine and citrus, though entirely in vain. Yeah, this means there's a bit of clash to the flavors, but it's not all that strident. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a nice "red IPA". 'Nuff said, really.
