This brew is awesome. The bottle Is different, a more thug like art and feel. I've had in bottle and glass, prefer bottle as it given its natural fruit flavor. Smells great and unlike citrus ale's is given a lot more different fruit flavors. Beer is great I've had it on multiple occasions I rather have the ipa version though. Suggest everyone to try

Picked up a single from Total Wine back in early March for $2.29. Bottled on 10/31/13...a bit of a risk buying a bottle that old.

Beer poured amber-red with a beautiful off white head that has settled down to flotsam.

Nose is bready and citrusy.

Taste is bready malts with some toastiness; hops are citrus with some pine. Pretty well balanced although there is some residual hops in the after taste.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with some decent carbonation.

Overall this is the type of smaller red i have not seen in awhile, quite tasty despite being almost 7 months old. I will definitely look for this one again!
