Hazy dark orange pour with a creamy pale orange head.

Strong overripe peach aroma with some citrus.

Taste has a lot of orange and lemon with some pine in the background. Subtle malt sweetness. Grapefruit rind aftertaste. Becomes much more piney as it warms.

Taste is just a little thin.

Thin body a little drying on the palate.

Overall, very easy to drink and alcohol is totally concealed. Very enjoyable.

A: Beer pours a nice red body with a half inch thick white head

S: A delicious smell of fresh hops hits me in the face. There is also a nice sweetness to it.

T: Tons of bitter hops and it tastes delicious in this style. It's almost more like and imperial IPA IMO.

M: Strong bit of carbonation on the back of the throat.

O: It's nice to finally have a nice beer from Fort Worth that's actually worth something... Take note Rahr.
