Saucy Intruder has a beautiful red color. It smells earthy and the hops shine through. The initial taste is malty but gives way to hops almost immediately. The mouthfeel starts off coarse but mellows out very quickly. Overall, this is a great beer and my favorite at Black Acre Brewery.

Great Beer!

32 oz. growler filled a few days ago poured into a NB snifter.

A - Pours a slightly pale but glistening golden straw yellow into the glass. A one-finger head of eggnog-white foam with lots of sudsy bubbles in the middle dissipates at a purposeful pace, leaving a thin ring of lace around the glass and large bubbles on the surface. Held to a full-spectrum light, the beer is a sunset orange-red and almost completely clear, with a thick column of bubbles rising to the surface up the center.

S - Luscious, ripe, freshly cut grapefruit served in a pine forest. Hints of orange and lemon zest. Freshly sawed wood with a touch of dried flowers. In the background, medium toasted multi-grain bread fresh from the toaster and a touch of caramel occasionally poke through. It's a decently complex nose and a pleasure to linger over.

T - An exact match of the nose, freshly squeezed grapefruit envelopes the tongue. As it passes, the rye provides a roughened quality to the foundation of the toasted malts, along with a bit of spice. Hints of orange candy sugars and a drop of honey appear in the back-end in an attempt to provide some balance. A noticeable dried herbs and pine hops presence lingers in the finish and rules the tongue.

M - Moderately fizzy with respectable carbonation. Body is a bit on the thin side, but not watery. Structure is tight, with well-integrated components. Finish is almost pucker-dry and takes its time fading away.

O - This is a rather robust IPA, in the sense that the flavors are full and up-front and feature the hops throughout. The rye provides both a roughed-up aspect to the taste as well as a deeper quality to the malt background/foundation. The folks at Black Acre said it's their most popular beer, and that's understandable - this guy is ready to play middle linebacker for the ole alma mater. Looking for an IPA that's just a bit more tuned-up than a bucket full of hops dumped onto a pedestrian grain bill? Check this beer out.
