WOW! I cannot find much to knock on this beer for. It is Stellar with a capital S!
It pours a nice red orange color with little head or lacing. I love the crystal clear look of this beer!
The smell of this beer is just spectacular! It's either Apricot or Guava, not sure which, but what a nice strong smell.
The the taste. Nice strong, flavorful beer. I would guess it's apricot taking over this beer, but it has a nice citrus appeal to it, with a very good balance of bitterness added.
Mouthfeel is lovely with a medium carbonation, and a bit high malt body.
Overall, I love this! It was very hard not to give it a 5, and if I continue to fall in love with this brew, I may revisit this review and upgrade it. If you have never had it, GET IT!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Crystal clear red-gold color, dense head of tightly bound bubbles.

Smell: There's a decided note of fruit - apricot, perhaps? Under that is the grassy note of hops. Fresh smelling and clean.

Taste: The 8.9% ABV hits your palate in the initial tasting; malt and hops on the mid-swallow, finishing off with undertones of fruit.

Mouthfeel: Sharp, bracing. Finishes clean with little aftertaste. What's there is primarily hoppy.

Overall: Quite nice, for such a heavy beer. I could see buying this one again.

appearance
Golden in color with froth head and large bubbles that thins out shortly after pouring. Crystal clear in appearance with not haze or floates . Not very red
aroma
Citrus pine aroma with a malty sweetness. has a bit of funkyness to it due to dry hopping. Very inviting
taste
Citrus apricot Hoppiness with a bit of alcohol coming in toward the end and finishing with a bit of almost candy sweetness
overall
Surprised that it’s so light. Up there with some of my favorite reds ie nugget nector, great example of style. Most reds seemed to be under malted over hopped brown ales. A bit too strong to have high drinkability but taste great and its great for sipping and enjoying
