3.86/5 rDev -2%
Appearance-poured from a bottle into a brandy glass, dark ruby read sparkling with a half a finger of white head that dissipated rather quickly.
Aroma- sweet traces of maple syrup and jolly rancher fruit candy. With an all too familiar tropical hop aroma. I smell this in a lot of beers I like. Slight traces of chocolate or carob.
taste- wow rather smooth i would say that this beer is the closest i have ever tasted to a cherry tootsie pop. honestly its not sticky sweet but has almost a cordial type taste to it. the hops take on a medicinal ( but not unpleasant note think jagermeister)). I know this description wouldn't sell it for me but it is a very good tasting beer.
Mouthfeel- medium to dry, it could be a very fast drinking beer because i perceive a slightly lower level of carbonation. There is a slight alcohol warmth as well.
Overall- it s a very unique beer, I think calling it a west coast red under sells it. This beer taste like it has some depth or age to it. The on the bottle description is more accurate " its malty with out being too sweet and hoppy without being too bitter" paraphrased. I would gladly grab another! I would pair it with a pork tenderloin that had some sort of fruit compote garnish, thanksgiving turkey ( as a sub for cranberries), or after getting a flat top in the old barbershop (that's when i would always have a tootsie pop)

A- Deep red color. Very clear. Not a huge head, but lacing around the outside sticks around.
S- Very distinct grapefruit/ tropical fruit aroma dank and resiny
T- Grapefruit and tropical fruit right away, with moderate bitterness. Ends with sweet caramel malty notes. A touch of grassiness in there too which i didnt care for.
M- Velvety, carbonation was spot on.
overall i really liked the beer, if i lived in cali i would be buying this beer a lot.

Serving Type- on tap poured into a tulip glass
Appearance- Dark hazy reddish color, pretty solid lacing on the head and some alcohol legs, thick white head but goes away pretty fast
Smell - Roasted malts, smell caramel, hops, just a solid smelling amber ale
Taste- Roasted malts, caramel, hops, some citrus coming through from the hops but just enough not overpowering
Mouthfeel- Smooth, silky solid amber ale
Overall- A pretty solid amber ale just a good beer and for 8%Abv its hidden pretty well just a great beer...Cheers

poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip
A: beautiful dark blood red. great hue, khaki head about a pinky high, dissipated fairly quickly
S: light caramel, light hops, allspice, smooth malt.
T: same as smell, very balanced in all areas. just hoppy enough, just malty enough. a little sweet, a little bitter. nice mix
M:little bit chewy. smooth cold sip with a lingering bubbles with a very slight post-milk flemmyness. haha.
O: good beer, not on of my favorites, probably would not buy again, although i got it in a trade with a friend. if someone offered it to me i would take it but not gonna be waiting in line for it anytime soon.
