3.36/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.5

Hazy dark amber with a light tannish head.

Faint citrus aroma, no detectable malt.

Tastes literally like grapefruit juice. The acidity mixed with citrusy hops and a very light malt body creates the flavor of a substantial quaff of pure grapefruit juice. No real layers of flavor here. I think I can pick out the hop flavor above the sour acidity but the mixture of the two coalesces into a perfect citrus juice drink.

Not so much like a well hopped american IPA, but it finds a strange zen between hops and sourness and achieves grapefruit juice in beer's clothing.

3.52/5  rDev +8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The appearance was a semi-burnt orange to amber color with a finger's worth of white foam for a head. Dissipated fairly slow to leave some light lace running here and there.
The aroma captured some sour to acidic green apples, light tart apple skin-like edge, light fluent grassy to vinous notes, some grapefruit and a little bit of white grapes came in as it warmed.
The flavor was mildly acidic in it's sour nature and developed the tartness I expected it would. Aftertaste was the same.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine, somewhat low but not too low. ABV felt on par.
Overall, Flanders red ale? Well, perhaps an Americanized one, but I didn't mind this for me.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, orange-gold coloring with a white, clingy head. Nose of citrus (lemon, grapefruit, and orange) with minimal hops presence and a sour twist. Citrus sour forward, with cut grass character and pine profiles following Bitter and tart aftertaste, with a citrus linger into a smooth finish. Light and crisp bodied. Interesting brew.
