A malty red ale that pops with pleasantly fruity undertones, chock full of whole raspberries and just enough habanero peppers to create a pleasant tingle in your throat. You’ve got sweet, fruity, caramel-y, spicy all in one package - it’s like jam for your jelly, baby.

Fflight pour on tap at the brewery (Oakland. Park, FL). Pours a deep blood red crimson hue, a subtle haziness but largely a darker rich reddish color. A gorgeous color and subtle frothy filmy layer that dies down quickly, laces skantily. Aromas are a bit toasty, carmelized and peppery. Earthy and warming heat flare the nostrils with seedy raspberry, jabs of chiles, and a bit of earthiness. Interesting mix. Initial is lighter bodied for the look, a bit metallic and caremlized with an earthy appeal, gentle raspberry and earthy bitter hops. A touch of heat starts to grow on the palate from the first sip, some toasty, biscuity and subtle chocolate malts, the raspberry falls behind as earth, subtle bitterness and a slow but steady peppery appeal grow. Backend is dry, a bit toasty, the peppery heat growing to a firm warmth that compliments well, occasionally makes oen think a bit more. Warm, peppery and lingering, a gentle fire with earthy malts. Interesting combo, fruit falls far behind and never really offers much. Still the base allows the pepper to grow slowly, display well overall.

Pours ruby/garnet in color. Has an off white head with low retention. Smells of sweet raspberries. Initial taste is very raspberry forward and fairly sweet. There is definitely a hint of peppers hiding behind the sweetness. Finishes crisp and refreshing with a slow warming that builds the more you drink.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Draft... Pours clear, dark and ruby with a small, wispy, off-white head. The nose is watered down, but does furnish a truckload of fresh raspberries. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with stinging carbonation. The flavor is fruity, loaded with raspberries, mildly tart and full of toasty malts. No habanero flavor, but the heat kicks in during the lengthy, warming finish. Yeah. Fire in the freakin’ hole. My tongue, throat and belly feel the heat. Very nice.

Draft, a cool experiment that worked well, good spicy flavors, fruit beer background, but I enjoy sweet and spicy food

On tap at Redlight Redlight. Beautiful deep red pour with minimal head. Sweet raspberries on the nose with some pepper undertones. The taste is amazing, with huge raspberry flavor up front, followed by some sweet malt that transitions to the habaneros perfectly. Warming sensation on the finish but not overpowering. Excellent.
