Poured into a gobblet at Brewforia, Meridain. Head light...lacing delicate..small bubbles bouncing up through the dark amber....very dark with fine highlights. Massive grapefruit...sublte orange....do I taste pomegranate? Very smooth in the mouth leaves the palliate dry...like a lemon...tart...expecting the next mouthful. If this beer had just a smidge more complex overtones it would as my server said,"Stupid good." Cheers!!

A: murky ruby grapefruit honey red

S: grapefruit, malt, caramel

T: grapefruit, pineapple, pine, sweet caramel

M: medium, don't feeling carbonation

O: it's ok. I'm a LA fanboy. However I'd recommend their Belgian style offerings over this. It seems a little mediocre compared to the rest of their offerings. Nothing offensive though

This holiday IPA shows a dark rosy amber color with a fair cover of white that breaks down to a sparse blanket with lots of crackled lacing. The aroma is clearly announcing some grapefruit hops and some caramel wheat. Fairly mild but nice. The flavor brings a bigger hop kick with near cloying grapefruit and some piny bitter sweetness. There's a hint of cherry and sweet grain with a very subtle alcohol sensation. This is a solidly medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation that drinks pretty well for the ABV. The feel is fairly heavy with just a tasteful bit of spritely tingle for the tongue. A definite hop brew for the holidays when you might want to pace yourself a little to enjoy the crackling fire. Very nice.
