COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Often referred to as Burning River Pale Ale’s big brother, this stock ale is remarkably balanced for such a highly hopped beer. A rich deep blood red color makes this beer scary enough to be served every Halloween and a few other times of the year.

On tap in the Pittsburgh airport, Bar Symon. I smell wood smoke, toffee, black pepper. Clear orange brown with moderate khaki head. Flavors of toasted grain, resin, peaches, alcohol. My mouth likes it a lot. Fine balance of malt complexity with hop edge.

Bottle to pint glass. Pour is deep copper with an off white head. The aroma is hoppy with some red apples. The taste is a well balanced hop and fruit combo. Not citrus but other fruits. The finish is moderately carbonated and easy. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pras (506) - Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Draft at Ventnor. I really enjoyed this. Poured a deep orange color. Aroma was malt and hops. Flavor was malt forward with a nice roasty/smokey note. Highly hoped, but perfectly balanced with the malt. Very enjoyable. Alcohol well hidden.

Bottled. Pours reddish brownish. Caramel malt, some hops, hint of fruits. Nothing amazing IMO.
