3.7/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Nice auburn color, some lacing

S: Very hoppy, but some malt in there too. Not huge in this area.

T: More on the malt and hops than the citrusy flavors, but they do warn you. Vaguely like a brown IPA.

M: Medium body with a soft feel, not too carbonated.

D: If it weren't so big it would be very drinkable. Another beer I'd like to see more widely available in smaller bottles.

I would love to try this on tap, but for a beer available in the local grocery store, it was very enjoyable.

3.88/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip glass.

The color is a dark black with maroon and dark brown highlights. There is about two fingers of brownish/tan head and small amount of lacing.

The smell has a citrus hop aroma that is surprising since the color was pretty dark. There is touches of grapes and figs here that do come out among teases of dark malt.

The taste is citrus at first with a big tangerine or grapefruit flavor. There is a flavor of caramel malt that tries to sneak past the hoppy fruit flavor but is pushed back by the return of the hop bitterness toward the end.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied and is pretty drinkable but does not seem to be as balanced as intended. It goes down pretty well little effort. With a little age this beer would even out and could be really fantastic. The hops would mellow a little and the malts would be showcased better.
