COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t spend this Single Awareness Day alone – grab a beer! This red-blooded cousin of Evil Dead Red Ale, our Halloween Brew, is a beautiful crimson color. Notes of caramel, toast, and bittersweet chocolate balance an intense bouquet of floral hop aromas that we know you’ll fall in love with. The finish leaves a pleasant, full-bodied sweetness on the palate that won’t spread angry rumors about you to all your friends like that one time when I was…ohh…uhh…Happy Valentine’s Day!

How hadn’t I reviewed this yet? Poor form, clown. Welp, bomber. Hazy dark reddish brown color with a sticky off-white head. Big hop aroma, floral and citrusy, with toasty caramel notes backing it up. The flavor is quite nice, toasty with a bitter finish. Sweet caramel/cocoa, but mostly dry. Medium-bodied with a biting bitterness. Good.

AirForceHops (5262) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 23, 2016
22 oz. Bottle purchased at Spruce Street Provision. Color is a real deep ruby, borderline mahogany in color, very thin head. Aroma is huge pine hops caramel and crystal malts.

Flavor is a nice hoppy rendition of a amber ale. Toffee, bready malt and caramel malts. Body is medium with a dry pine finish. Pine forward amber ale that drinks pretty much as it should be.

Bottle, pours a beautiful dark mahogany with a thick, lasting beige head. The aroma pops nicely on this one - a great medley of citrusy/piney PacNW hops, fresh bread, toasted malts and burnt orange. Flavor has a real great balance of the flavors mentioned in the aroma along with the perfect level of sweetness and bitterness. Toffee and grapefruit aftertaste with a tinge of wood. Body is medium with a smooth texture and fine carbonation - would have preferred a little more body on this one, though. Overall great stuff. Reminds me a bit of Bear Republic Red Rocket back in the day.
