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

Clear brown color with tan head. Nice floral, nutty, belgian spice aromas. medium body. Toasty, nutty grain flavors with spicy caramel--not bad.

(Growler thanks to Walt) clear medium red, thick creamy offwhite head. Nose of candi sugar, a little vegetal, brown sugar, very green, American hops. Taste of American hops, honey/brown sugar, saccharin, fairly hoppy and estery.

Now hereís a beer from flix with some substance. Dark brown with amber tint. A bit hazy. Good signs. The head is a thin dirty ring. The aroma, light danky, wet hop cones. The body is finally full, a feature that has been lacking in flix brews. They must have been catering to the bud light drinkers of round rock but this beer breaks the mold of the smitherings of their other offerings. The flavor is hoppy with a spiced malt backbone. Thereís a hint of ginger in the aroma and flavor as well. Most fill and satisfying beer Iíve had at this brewhouse. Thereís a bit of anise in the flavor as well, or licorice for those of you unprivileged of schooling.

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.
