4.48/5 rDev +9.5%
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a deep reddish brown color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains citrus, caramelized malts and floral hops.
T: The taste starts out sweet with strong but not over-powering burst of hops bitterness. Then some citrus and caramel sweetness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.
M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is an excellent beer to pound down for a while.

A: dark mahogany. deep amber. lots of carbonation with a hint of alcohol legs. Strong tan head that stands up two fingers. evil looking beer. see what i did there?
S: a hint of tropical fruit. strong grapefruit presence with citrus bite. Underlying toasted bread with a slightly sweet biscuity caramel.
T: Right off the bat the biscuit malt and deep toffee overwhelm you. Toasted crackers. sweet enzymes. The back end is where the hops hit you. Pine and earthy hops. a hint of something floral. the finish is sweet pineapple and grapefruit before a drying pine bite. delicious.
M: The carbonation is medium to high. It tingles as it goes down. long piney somewhat wet grass finish.
O: Very impressed here. Lots of toast, bread and crackers with a strong delicate balance of sweet hops. This bottle stands no change. Like the necromonicon beware of this beast!

Pours into an impy pint glass a rich deep amber with a billowing one and a half finger beige head that has alot of craters spitting out foam,two broken rings of lace is left behind as it settles slowly into a frothy mass.Sharp grapefruit and English toffee play equal parts in the nose,just great.Leave it to the left coast to get the hoppy amber right again,sweet brown sugar with almost a butterscotch element to it,more caramel lends to the malty sweet side,then a big splash of grapefruit and pine jump out ya in the finish.The malty and hoppy sides of this beer intertwine almost perfectly and the feel is full but mellow at the same time.A damn fine hoppy American red here that has a great malt character as well.
