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.

OysterMonkey (14) - - NOV 1, 2013
Deep red. Minimal head but good retention and nice lacing. Hop aroma strong but also a sweet fruitiness under that. Flavor the same way. Nice spicy hop bite up front but roasty malt sweetness on the back. Extremely smooth for a mid-high ABV. Really really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours very red with minimal head. Nose is hops, caramel malts, sweet fruitiness. Taste is aggressively hopped up from, spicy and peppery. Then the malts kick in with a little sweetness, and a bitter aftertaste. Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
