4.26/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: caramel/light amber color. big tannish head that leaves a nice spotty lacing

Smell: heavy citrus, toasty breads. a mix between sweet malts and resiny hops.

Taste: Resiny citrus hops. Toast and sweet malts are strong as well. alcohol fills in a bit. very well balanced and more bitter than sweet

Mouthfeel: fairly creamy. lots of lingering bitter.

Overall: a great hoppy red. I think this one was a little old but it was just as good as i when i had it a few months back when it was fresher.

Serving type: can

The beer pours in a dark amber orange color with a fluffy head.

The aroma has dank pine, orange, grapefruit citrus with some sweet caramel malt.

The flavor follows with that grapefruit and orange in the front, onto a sweet caramel malt that gives the beer a nice body. Lots of sweetness in there and well balanced. A big dank pine, earthy bitterness on the finish.

Reminds me a bit of Sixpoint Resin.

Poured into a wine/tulip/snifter

A - Really nice deep translucent copper, two finger off white head and some very sugary lacing

S - Sugary, FRUITY, lots of dry flowers, BOOZEY, sweet pine sap, wet wood, very strange funk, HOPS, sweet malts and more sugar and booze

T - Trix/fruity pebbles cereal, huge sugary/hoppy booze note, burnt grains, pineapple, mango, clementine, banana bread yeast, a hint of mint, all around bitterness and something I can't quite get my taste buds on

M - Full body, weird balance, nice complexity, huge acidity and a very funky/sweet/hop/booze finish

D/O - Not quite what I expected, tasty but funky, sexy but awkward, refreshing but filling. One of the more strange but awesome IPA/APA 's I have had. I want to throw back a 4 pack and see how I feel. If you like adventures, crack one open

Final thoughts - $16 a 4 pack is silly, loving the 8% abv. Worth a go (or two) for sure
