22oz bottle. Pours a very dark and hazy amber/maroon colour. Definately feel the malty side more then the hops, but its a sweet balance. Nice little lingering after taste. Don't notice a hint of the 10% alc at all. Very smooth drink, quite tasty. I would get this again.

A recent addition to Beertopia in Omaha... very nice...

Deep copper... bits of an auburn/reddish hue... 1/2" eggshell colored head... bubbles form quite tight.

Sweet strawberry and grapefruity nose... grassy and a little malt. Citrus is pretty big... small touch of pine.

Largely hoppy on the intake... somewhat dry through the swallow and a grainy hit in a pine/citrus finish. Pretty darn tastey for sure... At 10% it sure snuck up on me... sip it slow!
