COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer with an identity crisis. It starts life thinking it is Belgian but soon realizes it is destined to be more American after all. A dark red ale that blends a mildly roasty flavor with punchy American hops. The fruity character of the Belgian yeast rounds out the profile to make a beer that orbits mysteriously around the world of existing beer styles. Belgian red IPA? Malt bill: Marris Otter malt, Pilsener Malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt, black malt, flaked barley, sugar. Hops: Nugget, Amarillo, Cascade, Apollo, Columbus

On tap at Flix. Brownish pour with a tan head. Aroma is big fruit, almost raisin, and brown sugar. Taste is a little roast, kinda fruity, lots of smacky bubblegum, and a little more brown sugar.

Shaker at the joint- served a solidly 50% turbid with a dark brown and lightened maroon shading, creamy 3 mm head laced nicely all around. Aroma of toffee, caramel, spices, and fruit esters from the yeast. Hits the mouth with a medium body, tasting was just smooth and creamy on the mouth through the whole glass, malt seemed just lightly toasted, finish is full. Not a belgie to style, but damn good though!

A pint at Flix. Pours dark amber with a off white head that dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing. This is a pleasantly bitter beer with grapefruit notes from the hops and an overall undertone of tobacco and sourdough. This beer is lightly medium bodied and easy to put down. Solid.
