KINGPIN is a full-flavored, red-colored ale that uses a rarely-grown Willamette Valley Hop varietal known as Liberty Hops from fourth generation hop farmer John Annen of Annen Bros. Farm in Silverton, Oregon. Jeff and his team of brewers also used rye and caramel malt leading to a unique flavor profile; triple-hopped for bitter aroma and a unique dry-hopped character.

This is like a Killian’s Irish Red on steroids. It’s full-bodied, but somewhat one-dimensional. I liked it and would try it again sometime.

Draft pour on nitro. Normally the beers I’ve tried on nitro are better than their non-nitro versions, but not this time. It was incredibly smooth to drink, but it was to the point that it barely had any carbonation, so it tasted flat. Also in this particular version, while the malts showed through, you could barely taste any hops.

Bottle in Portland. Nice red amber body with slight head. Nose is fruits, caramel and malts. Same with the taste of malts and caramel. Nice bitter finish.

Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of HOPS, and some other hints, maybe fruit, maybe coffee. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and hoppy as hell.

M_Sack (623) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Deep caramel, with well retained frothy cappuccino head and heavy lacing. Aromas dominated by caramel, traces of almond, boozy fruit cake and earthy hops. Immediate caramel flavours, followed by a decent whack of alcohol which doesn't detract, cleansing mid palate bitterness and back notes of malty, cherry sweetness, ending with a long, earthy finish. Love those earthy hops. More of these please Brewers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Death Valley, Morningside. A nice reddish brew with a hoppy nose. Strong on both malt and hops and the malts tip the scales toward a sweeter finish than most American Strong Ales. Still my kind of beer.

@ Bridgeport brewpub 16-3-10: småtrevlig red ale med beska toner, lite tvål och en maltig sötma.
