COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We conceived this beer to entice the sinner and saint in each of us, following one simple rule: you can never have too much of a good thing. So we took mountains of Crystal, Wheat, and Munich malts and paired them with huge handfuls of Cascade and Tradition hops for an irresistibly wicked beer that’s at once temptingly sweet and scandalously bitter, with a full body and deep red color. Go on, treat yourself a little and ask for the happy ending.

Elwood (3046) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Serving: Draft. Appearance: Hazy orange with a foamy, white head. Decent retention and great lacing. Aroma: Slight pine notes, a little biscuit. Fairly straight forward. Taste: Light biscuit notes from the malt side, Herbal, grass, and pine notes from the hops. Nice back bitterness. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium-light, dry mouthfeel. Overall: This one seemed to have some alt characteristics to me. Still, a pretty decent brew. Rebuy: If I happen to stop by the brewery I wouldn’t mind having another one of these.

draught. Pours a cloudy amber with a frothy white head. There’s grapefruit and a bit of pine in the nose. More grapefruit in the flavor, bit of twigs, some butter toffee, the hops are semi-biting. Not bad.

craftbeerdesign (2175) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2008
on tap at Asheville Pizza on 3/22. Nice standard IPA that doesn’t offer anything special or spectacular, but does it’s job well... a clean, slightly hoppy and refreshing beer that goes great with the wonderful pizza this place puts out...

brentfeesh (1207) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2006
On tap at the brewery. Poured hazy brownish orange. Nice hoppy fresh grain aroma. Adequate body for the style. Crisp, grassy hops with a hint of grapefruit. Light nutty malt. Long lightly bitter grapefruit finish. An enjoyable beverage and with a name like “red light” (as in district) you can’t go wrong for #420.
