COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Exit 9 is better known as ‘the Rutgers University exit,’ so we crafted this Hoppy Scarlet Ale as a nod to their school color, scarlet,” says founder/president Gene Muller, a Rutgers Alumnus. Created by Head Brewer Casey Hughes, Exit 9 Hoppy Scarlet Ale is a richly flavored red beer crafted with a variety of domestic and imported malts and a classic American yeast strain. It is assertively hopped with Amarillo, Centennial, Chinook and Citra hops for a bouquet with complex notes of citrus and tropical fruits and an appropriate bitterness in the finish. Hughes recommends it with spicy foods, such as gumbo or curry, as well as alongside rich blue or sharp cheddar cheeses, or just by itself.

Best exit beer just so happens to be the one i live off of. Awesome. Complex fruity hoppy mixture, copper color, medium carbonation and pretty potent to boot.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Appearance: blood oranges and cherry skins under a pithy bready head – lacey, full, and lingering. Swirls puffy with spotty lace.
Nose: bready and hoppy – of the forest, harvest, and the baker’s oven. Apple skins, kiwi, lemon zest, and whole apricots. Dry brittle baled hay and straw. A forest bed littered in Fall’s leaves gold, amber, and brown. Sticky caramelized sappy resins. Pink grapefruit peel. Tropical aloe.
Palate: full and sticky up front. Prickly green pine and fir tree needles in the back. Further quaffing provides continues full and sticky before leading into a dry, parched finish – of the Fall harvest. Orange peel and whole apricots. Sweet succulent mango and kiwi in the middle where the flavors are thickest and heaviest. Grapefruit rind and pith in the back. Pine needles and sticky pine sap, hop oils and resins hold everything together. Rustic tree bark thirst-inducing finish.
Final Thoughts: lovely. The Exit series from Flying Fish is a real treat and thanks to Total Wine and Spirits, available in my sunny state of Florida. From their sessionable standards and seasonal to their inspirationally quirky Exit releases, be sure to treat yourself with a bottle or three. Yum.

BANG! The winner of the evening. A copper / amber pour. Aroma of citrus fruit, pine, and caramel malt. Flavors are abundant. Nuts, bread, grass, and citrus pine that melt in your mouth and finish with a touch of grape fruit.

glennmastrange (2424) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle. Moderate to heavy malt aromas of roasted and caramel, moderate orange juice and peel for the hops, light yeast note of soap, with date and brown sugar in the background. Head is small, frothy, slightly off-white with good yet slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky amber/orange. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, with an oily slickness and has a carbonation between soft and lively, with a lightly alcoholic finish. Nice bold aromas from the malt and bitey flavors from the hops in the American Strong Ale.

Arayaga2 (1901) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Murky brown with a light tan head. Aroma is citrusy hops. Taste is the same with deep pithy bitterness and a lingering orange-peel into the finish.

hopscotch (10077) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle... Muddy caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aromatics are subtle, musky, peppery hops melded with afterthoughts of biscuit and toffee. Medium to full-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor leans way bitter - toffee and biscuit outweighed by resiny, rindy bitterness. Lengthy, grassy, bitter finish.

SanfordBrewer (1406) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2011
translucent orange with a thick sudsy head; very effervescent; a creamy and soft full body, with a fine medium-full carbonation.

aroma: very nice, complex, tropical fruit, hops; sweet amber malts; and a waxy lip-balm note. some yeastiness emerges as it warms.

taste: fresh, vibrant, pungent, orange-zesty, tropical hops with a hint of guava; sweet amber malts with toffee and caramel notes, and a hint of chocolate;

Tmoney99 (11826) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle. Poured cloudy reddish copper with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate to long duration. Give a positive response to this.

BillWyce (829) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2011
From notes: Pours cloudy reddish-amber with a thick, off-white head. Aroma is of piney hops, but with a bit of a sweet, tropical fruit note beneath. Deep, with a slight thickness to the body. Strong piney hops taste up front that gives way to a note of sweet orange in the finish.
