4.1/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a clear copper color with a three fingered head that leaves quite a few shards behind; terrific retention, too (other reviewers have noted a ruby red color which may have been true in the earlier batch but not in this one)
Smell: Crusty brown bread and caramel, with a very unusual hop profile that includes pine, raspberry and pomegranate (another reviewer noted the pomegranate flavor and that hit the nail on the head)
Taste: Brown bread and caramel, up front, but the hops quickly take over, bringing pine, tart raspberry and pomegranate elements; the flavors balance each other out after the swallow and there is also a distinct earthy character
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation
Overall: I was fully prepared to rate this beer's taste below a 4.0 until midway through the bottle; while I am still not an enthusiast, it is different enough and, appealing in its own right, to merit a higher score; definitely work a look for those who are intrigued with the flavors a brewer can coax out of the ingredient mix

This is a very nice hopped up red brew! The beer poured a clear amber with white head that left a nice lace. I poured the beer carefully out of the bottle as to avoid any sediment. The scent was hoppy with a pine/citrus flare. The taste was a great amber/malt base with adornments of pine and citrus. The mouthfeel was full body with decent carbonation. Overall this was an absolute solid offering and I would highly recommend it to those that enjoy hopped up reds!!!
