Believer Double Red Ale
Ratebeer 3.58 90th percentile
Beer Advocate B+
From all the great ratings, I was expecting a great beer. The nose is a little musty with a half arsed attempt at grapefruit hops. You can pick out a little caramel malt and brown sugar before the hops scatter everything.
After all this you are left with a long astringent bitter grapefruit from the hops. It almost got a -2.

I might have left the console to get another beer to cleanse my palate.
I was very disappointed by this beer. It needed more sweetness and less astringent hops. Maybe it was just the bottle I got, because others really liked it.
