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.

Malt: Caramel, Roasted Barley

loubar (155) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle from Southgate Liquors. Pours a dark reddish amber color, with tan head. Faintly sweet with citrus on the nose. An assertive citrus, grapefruit hop taste of near IPA strength takes hold. Then bready moderating malts kick in with some sweetness. The hops carry through just enough for a fairly bitter finish with some lingering malt. A full flavored, balanced, yet hoppy, red ale.

sulawang (743) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2014
Visual: Pours copper reddish brown with a small creamy head, well sticky lacing, a very thin layer of micro retention, several slow singular streams. Nose: sweet honey/barley malts, mild hoppy backdrop. (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: crisp-sweet-hopped balance Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, fizzy-tingly, (MAIN) barley malt, soft-prominent hopped bitterness, caramel, subtle roast. Finish: lingering bitter hops, light caramel-bitter hopped finish. Summary: A crisp, semi-malty, semi-sweet but hop-dominant beer. Very drinkable with a meal or alone, although a bit tiring on the palate.

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