A - Hazy brown with a reddish tinge to it, cream colored head that sticks around

S - Citrus hops with some lightly toasted malt, very nice smelling.

T - Wham, citrus hops right off the bat hit you, mostly grapefruit, then mellows to the malt and eventually a bready flavor. Lots of good flavor packed into this beer.

M - Medium mouthfeel with low carbonation, flavor sticks in your mouth for a while, very nice.

O - Beautifully crafted beer. Maybe slightly less hops with a touch more of the bready flavor would have made it epic to my taste buds.

pours a cloudy orange amber with a medium head. chock full of tiny sediment. nose; citrus hops, grapefruit, & sugar. taste; caramel malt, honeyed biscuit, citrus hops, grapefruit zest & pulp, sugar, & light pine. medium carbonation & mouthfeel. probably the best red out there; hoppy and fruity, and maybe just a smidge too sweet. =)
