As distinct as the ruddy lava butte that inspired its name, this ale pours mahogany red and has a rich toffee flavor from caramel malt and roasted barley. Amarillo and Tettnang hops give every sip balance and subtle bite.

"Get it at the brewery...itís AWESOME fresh...maybe a 4.5+. Good in the bottle too, about a 4, but I love Deschutes and thereís been a time or 2 when it was the best beer they were serving on tap, and iím more of a stout/imperial ipa type of guy!"

Pours a hazy deep red with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, fruit with hints of bread and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a light bitter hop finish. Pretty decent stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle from Hazelís beverage world. pours amber with a thin khaki head. leaves a lot of lacing. nice hop notes on the nose. has a bit of grapefruit on the tongue that finishes pretty clean. itís a nice example of the style supercharged in a way that you would expect from Deschutes.

Barreras (1141) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Pours a copper color with a caramel malt aroma. Taste is clean, with a malt and sweet toffee flavor. The flavor is subtle with a slight roasted malt aftertaste. A bit sweet for a red amber ale but overall okay.

BVery (7387) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Nitro tap at Town Hall Lanes. Rich orange-amber pour with a nice frothy nitro head. Toffee, pine - this is just okay for me. I donít think the nitro is doing this any favors - Iíd guess the aroma / flavor would pop a little more if on CO2.

Nitro tap at Pizza Luce. Dark amber with a creamy tan head. Caramel, over ripe apples, tree sap and plastic aromas. Flavor is sweet at first, but has a strange plastic aftertaste. Medium body with the creamy nitro feel.
