I have always admired the fruit beers from new glarus, but beet so/so on their other stuff. this one changes that, as it is a fantastic double ipa. pours super red, coppery and bright with a huge frothy off white head. the nose is more like a strong ale than an ipa, I smell booze and malt in balance with the absurd quantity of hops. lots of oils in this, sweeter, not a bitter bomb, thanks to a nice caramel and red malt backing. the hop profile is really unique, sort of piney, but also really fruity, like dried cranberries or pomegranates. really mineral heavy in the finish, along with an almost sticky hop feel. fuller bodied and a little sugary towards the end, but the carbonation is good and its actually a very drinkable beer for its size and depth. my only regret here was that I only had one. I don't know why it doesn't, but I wish this stuff had wider distribution. one of the more unique double ipas ive had in months, and one of the more hefty beers that wasn't the color of motor oil ive maybe ever had. top quality here folks.
