COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppy red ale brewed with Rye malt. Deep ruby red in color, this hoppy American Red Ale speaks to the adventure drinker. Rye malt lends a subtle earthiness and silky body, which complements the big caramel and chocolate malt flavors. Just enough Pacific Northwest hops are added to balance this bold and beautiful beer.

Hazy copper with tan head. Fantastic lacing. Caramel dominates aroma with earthy hops. Full, chewy yeast and malt follow through with a full caramel and toast flavor.

Foamy head. Tastes like a really bready fat tire. Really grainy. Growler from joey.

sebletitje (8270) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2015
Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Cuivrée versant vers l’acajou, col crémeux beige. Arôme au bouquet houblonné agrumes, rétro grains - cara pils, seigle un peu trop en avant. Sorte de rappel thé vert. Palais est épicé, donnant une impression de Black IPA. Note agrumes qui se mêle à un malté centré plus sur le carapils, pâle et Munich. Le seigle perdure sur la fin apportant une fine note épicée, cara léger, herbacé sur la fin avec un léger pamplemousse. Ok mais pas le meilleur exemple du style.

Tap at the Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Poured a hazy medium brown with a thin whispy off white head. The aroma is yeast, light grassy hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big woody hop bitter, light resin palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Thx! for sharing. Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Red amber, little bubbles. Nose umami, caramel, burned sugar. Taste is overly herbal, umami, way too burned herbal taste, brown sugar, more roast,… Body is burned & herbal. Very dominating in that fashion & not to my taste.

22oz bottle pours a reddy brown color with a bit of head. Lots of malt and good hop balance.

Pours a dark amber color with a khaki head. Caramel, toffee, chocolate, hop and toast aroma. Caramel, chocolate, toffee, earthy hop, pepper, toast and rye flavors. Medium body and carbonation with a caramel, chocolate and rye finish. Was not expecting the chocolate. It’s a nice touch.

theOptimator (354) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Earthy chocolate toffee aroma with a hint of stone fruit. Appearance is dark brown red with large frothy off white head. Taste is nice mild chocolate roast, earthy hops, light bitterness and some sweet toffee. Palate is medium. Roast lays on the tongue. Overall a very nice american brown. Wou;d be more of a standout with a heavier body and a bit more rye. Wouldn’t know there was rye if it wasn’t on the bottle. Still a very nice beer.

Fatehunter (1947) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Pours a half finger of head on a dark brown body. The aroma is rich with rye, wood and spice. The taste starts with a nice malt sweetness, then turns a little lemon bitter, rye spice finish. The texture is soft and airy with a little fizz. An outstanding ale. Great balance and flavor.
