I haven't seen this in a couple or years, I'm afraid it's gone the way of Double Trouble and Devil Dancer.
L: Itsa copper color with a small off white head, minimal lacing.
S: Grapefruit, but not much.
T: Spicey, from the rye, some malt.
O: I really like this beer.

There is a strong smell and taste of grapefruit in the beer (even though no grapefruit is used). The rye adds a nice spiciness to the beer. This is a great beer to have on a hot day. I wish that this was still a year round offering.

(From notes taken at the Hop Cat in Ann Arbor.) Poured from draft into a pint glass, a clear golden red with excellent head and lacing. It has a sweet floral smell. The taste has a ice spicy hoppiness that gives this beer a rich taste and feel. Red ales and rye beers are both favorites and this is a great beer!
