My good buddy Syndicate hooked this one up a couple weeks back.. Finally got around to it tonight while enjoying some brews and getting some backlog work done... Thanks Darrell!!

Pours a pretty muddy looking amber... light tan head.. good retention and lacing.

Nose has plenty of sticky piney hops, but a resolute malt profile brings dry toast, caramel and IMO, a pretty big hit of diacetyl...

Flavor begins with a good bitter bite and then moves immediately into pithy grapefruit/big pine... malts take over and provide a lingering toasted bread playground for the hops that go on and on.. With warmth a little buttery note is magnified by the residual sweetness... but also a tropical fruity hoppiness emerges as well..

Nice body and pretty drinkable... I personally don't care for the abundant darker caramel malty/toasty profile in this high percentage, but it is still well done... Thanks once again Darrel!!

A solid red IPA (That's really what the style is) but one that didn't quite meet the hype for me. Very hoppy with a focus on pine. I certainly smelled an tasted a little bit of that sticky dank hop character promised on the can but I would have liked more. To me the piney bitterness really took over. Overall a solid beer with a lot of flavor but not as good as I had hoped.
