Anyone get a chance to ride an Emonda ALR 5?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

At first glance, the ALR appears to be a direct competitor to the loved CAAD10 and Allez, except the ALR has full gruppos at the same price point. My LBS is going to try and order one for me to ride, but I'd like to get some opinions on here, since I can't find any reviews on the bike. There are some ALR 6 test rides out there, but no 5's.

Really, anything will be much better than my current road bike, a 2013 Trek 1.1, but if I'm going to fork over $1700 (I know, for some of you, this isn't much ), I'd like to see what others like and dislike about it.
