Deep ruby in color, Red Giant contains caramel malt sweetness combined with significant hop bitterness and leathery aroma, resulting in a balanced flavor profile. Not a singular beer, Red Giant’s complexity offers a new flavor with every sip.

ComradeK (1145) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2015
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep ruby, with a large light beige head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. Leather, a hint of smoke, resin and spice hops make for an inviting aroma. Potent spruce, citrus zest and marmalade hops up front give way to caramel, toffee and a meaty, savoury flavour in the mid-palate. It finishes strongly, with orange blossom and spruce hops. A nicely balanced hoppy, malty strong ale.

Bottle from cellarbrations superstore hami hill. Up front on the nose there's tones of booze with some caramel sweetness. Some resin comes through with slight roasty and citrusy undertones as well. Taste is pretty much as inviting as the aroma and rather syrupy. Not too bad.

Grzesiek79 (4032) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Botled on March 2011. Fajna owijka ale brak na niej zawartosci alkoholu. Przechodzac do piwa to zapach czerwonych owocow, runa lesnego i nieco sosny. W smaku czerwone owoce, marmolada porzeczkowa i silnie korzenne posmaki do tego chmiel wyrazisty goryczkowy. Posmak dlugi i czysty. Alkoholu nie wyczuwa sie. Piwo o glebokiej rubinowej barwie z wielka i trwala pianka oblepiajaca szklo i do konca testowania trzymajacej sie na powierzchni piwa.

I always like the unexpected. This beer challenged my palette. Very complex clashing tastes: cinnamon, sour, bitter and coffee notes. The dark ruby disguises a burst of uncertainty...and uncertainty is the thrill of it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It has been awhile since I last had this, not sure why because I like it. It has just the right amount of hops and still very flavorful yet the 8% alcohol level does not get in the way.
