3.71/5 rDev -11.9%
A - Deep amber, more like mahogany, hazed, thick white, rocky head has great retention and lacing.
S/T - Hop forward, as expected, with resinous pine mostly, touches of grapefruit. Caramel, toffee malt sweetness is slightly there, but the beer has an overpowering bitterness that masks what sweet flavors there may be. The resinous bitterness has little depth of hop flavor, only offering piney flavors.
M - Medium body, delicate medium carbonation, prickly across the palate.
O - Hoppy as expected, however, I was expecting more depth of hop flavor/aroma to allow for some malt sweetness to play in.

The color is a murky and opaque caramel. Great head, retention, and webbed lacing.
The nose has a heavy malt presence. Bready and slightly sweet. Herbal and pine hops.
Good balance of the bready malt, pine, and herbal flavor. Peach iced tea.
Chewy mouthfeel with heft.
A real nice hoppy red. I appreciate the assertive hops while keeping balance.

4/5 rDev -5%
Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a standard pint.
A: Amber hue. Pours a 2 finger, fluffy, frothy, brown-white head. Slow, dry, cratering. Plenty of lacing.
S: Roasted malt, pecans, molasses.
T: Bitter pecan shells, roasted coffee malt, and a bitter hop.
M: Hearty and hoppy. Bitterness hangs on the palate throughout.
D: Sip and enjoy.
Atmosphere is really nice. Great head and some sound lacing. Nose is roasty and nutty. Bitter and roasty with a nice hop. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

This is one of those beers where I am confused and have to ask "is it just me?" I love the aroma with its sweet fruity hops like nectarines and watermelon but the flavor comes across as more winey sweet with touches of floral bitterness. This was a very fresh bottle so I'm inclined to think it's just my palate that simply did not accept the hop varieties.
