Substantial amounts of late-kettle hop additions and dry-hopping yields a heady blend of fruity aromas of pineapple, peach and citrus. Those aromas continue into a crisply bitter hop presence across the tongue, but the judicious use of toasted and caramel specialty malts prevents the hop intensity from overwhelming the palate. Locally sourced Michigan honey creates a smooth, dry finish that pulls everything together. The India Red Ale style is a variation on the IPA, but with more caramel and toasted malt character and a reddish hue. Roundhouse was first brewed at our original brewery in downtown Kalamazoo in 2009.

Tap at city works with commonmac and others. Light plum with thick foamy head that dissipates and good lacing. Malty hop nose. More fruity than I expected but I liked it. Balances the malt and hop well. Great body. This far exceeded my expectations. Unique approach that works. Really good. A roundhouse kick to the tastebuds.

Pours a medium caramel brown with a thick light tan foamy head. Nice sweet citrus aroma with light malts and caramel. Medium body with a creamy texture. Malty caramel taste. Not harsh or bitter. Very smooth finish. Fairly enjoyable.

commonmac (1066) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2016
Tap at Cityworks before the St. Paul and the Broken Bones show. Belgian snifter glass. More than a finger eggshell/off white head on a deeper amber hued ale. Nose has a malty cereal element and some mild sweetness and floral notes. Taste is definitely more malt and bread than a traditional IPA. There is a healthy sweetness with a near fruity tendency. Caramel presence. Mouthfeel is a little chewy. Ends with a hop bitterness. Pleasant red IPA for those who shy away from assertive hop-forward options. Go ahead and embrace this one as if you were sparring with Van Damme or Norris.

cheap (5370) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Listed as an IPA but I think it may be a little more behaved than that. Clear bronze. Sweeter slight spiced aroma. Taste is mild rope with a little saddle mixed in. Has some sweetness in there which hides the alky pretty well. Yes, not much negative IPA happy BS int his one, of which I am glad.

skmikeg (1787) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Pours reddish amber with a one finger off white head with good lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, citrus, pine, caramel, sweet malts, toffee, and grassy hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, well balanced, yet still pretty hoppy, red IPA that I could see my self drinking a lot of in the future.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6850) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Sampled on draft at Tapped this beer poured a red-caramel color with a large foamy orange-tan head that rises over the glass and leaves good lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy with juicy fruity hops and notes of orange, pine and grapefruit. The flavor was bitter yet sweet and malty with caramel, pine, orange, grapefruit and a bit of crystal malt. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Old school goodness!

Aroma and appearance are def high raters for this brew. Taste is acceptable though nothing is really significant or nor does any one single taste come forward to stand out. It is pleasant to drink...not overly carbonated which is always a plus in my opinion. Just a bit too dry on the end for my liking. I wouldnít turn one down if offered. It just isnít a stand out red ale and not the brew that would come to mind when I think of Bellís.
