UPDATED: OCT 24, 2011 On tap at Eccentric. Clear amber. Sweet piney nose. Incredible hoppy, piney, citrus, caramely red taste. Chalk this one up in the pool of beers that tick me off b/c Bells doesnít bottle or growler them.

Tulip on tap at Lackman. Mostly clear dark red color. Thin off-white head, good lace. Bigger body. Good smooth lighter, more crisp carbonation. Good spicy hop, light tropical fruit. Moderate spicy bitterness, light sweetness. Solid imperial red ale. Kind of reminds me of GíKnight. Friends that tried a sip didnít seem to care for it, though.

Pour on tap, amber orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of slight rye, spice, hints of caramel, toffee, touch of orange peel, grapefruit in there, slight grass as well. Taste is a mix of grass, orange, and grapefruit hops, mixing into yeasty spice, rye, slight earth into caramel, toffee, finishing fairly bitter, slightly dry. Not bad.

Pours a dark amber with a large off-white khaki head. Aroma of big caramel malt with citrus hops. Nice drinkable resinous hops bite mellowing into caramel and rye malts. Simple really, very drinkable and enjoyable, possible favorite of the night.

Tap at Trion. Dark sweet rye bread, caramel, and orange hops aroma. Clear bright copper with a moderate ivory head. Spicy dark rye, sweet caramel and orange hops flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Fantastic rye beer. I love rye, and I loved that the rye flavor got to shine in this one.

Comes out of the tap a semi-transparent mahogany - I didnít get much head, but that is an artifact of the pour. Aroma is monumentally hoppy, equal parts woody and evergreen, will get any IPA fanís mouth a-wateriní! Flavor is hoppy, hoppy and hoppy - with a hint of, is that rye? Citrus undertone is equal parts Mandarin orange and grapefruit. Texture has firm body and lots of fizz, leaving a very hoppy and tingly finish. Happy End of the World (not!) everybody!
