Served on tap at the Royale
A - pours a reddish orange color with a nice head, akin to a puffy cloud with holes in it
S - nose is juicy grapefruit hops with grainy malts
T - taste opens up with citrus flavors upfront. These move on to a cereal and grain malt base but are overtaken by bitter grapefruit hops. The hops finish off this beer and leave a grapefruit rind bitterness on the tongue.
M - full and well carbonated
D - overall, this is a good, hoppy red ale. The flavors were very fresh and bright - solid effort put forth by 4 Hands with this one.
Serving type: on-tap

Orange-amber color. I had only poured about 3-4 ounces into my 12 ounce glass when the foam quickly rose to the brim of the glass. The head remained as bubble-bath, root beer float-like suds for several minutes after the pour, preventing me from consuming the beverage. Left dish detergent like lacing all over the glass.
Aroma of brown sugar, roasted almonds, with pine and dish soap.
Malt flavor hints at wheat toast. Touch of brown sugar sweetness. Then the hops take over with an aggressive and pungent laundry detergent flavor. Finishes with a rough, off-balances bitterness that never really leaves.
Medium bodied. Ample carbonation.
Purchased this beer from the closeout section of my local liquor store at $3.99. No freshness date on the bottle. To be fair, it was probably several months expired. Nonetheless, it was not a pleasant experience and I would not revisit it if it were free. Time to go pour the remaining 18 ounces down the drain.
