3.6/5  rDev -13.7%

A: Deep ruby brown with light foamy head(3/3)
S: Light fruitiness...cherry?...citrusy hop notes (8/12)
T: Fruity notes on tip of tongue blend toward malty and bitter finish. Strong hang, like unripe grapefruit or strong coffee in the after-taste. ...do I detect wood?(14/20)
F: Medium body and carbonation with very dry finish (4/5)
O: Really hard to pin down the subtle notes in this one. Drank it with a friend, and we both had a hard time finding words. (7/10)

A; Pours out a murky reddish copper. Two fingers of khaki head that wouldn't leave me alone.

S: Very bready. Subtle hint of fruit like strawberry and cherry.

T: Hoppy licorice. Strawberry and cherry from the nose mixed with an earthy, grassy hop. Delicious.

M: Medium sticky body with medium carb. Slightly tannic bite.

O: Very solid. The hoppiness is what sets this one apart. A great "go to" because of the availability in my area.
