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.

Pretty good. Very flavorful, kind of sweet, and hoppy. But yes, it is balanced and not bitter at all. Good depth of malts too. However, I wasn’t as blown away as many others are.

michcam8 (378) - Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Clear golden color with not much of a head or lacing. Aroma is of yeast, pine, grass and alcohol heat. Taste is of biscuit, resin pine, and floral hops. Unfortunately you get a strong alcohol burn on the palate that lingers. Overall this is a descent DIIPA, but there are much better.

b3shine (6576) - Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Draft to pint. Looks solid; a transparent brown with off-white head. Smells hippy and malty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid.

dalekliz (899) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber-brown with a white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, yeast, sugar, and a bit of bitter hops. A little cardboard-like. Taste is sharp and sweet, of malt, sugar, hops. Lingering hoppy malt. Decent.

Draught. Reddish amber. Citrus, hops, and malt are well-balanced. Nice moderate bitterness.

ryecatcher (1017) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep reddish amber, medium whitish head, not much retention, decent lacing. Nose is citrusy and piney hops and caramelly malt. Mouth is medium bodied, grapefruit, caramel, toasted bread, malt, lots of hoppy bitterness throughout. Kinda like an IPA cross-bred with a Märzen. Really good fall beer... one of my favorite GLBC labels too. Makes me wanna finish off the other 3 and howl at the moon.

DocJitsu (1264) - Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Pours a clear dark ruby-amber with a caramel colored head. Toasty toffee, ripe red fruit, and grassy hop. Cottony, filling mouthfeel. The flavors reflect the nose and are well-blended.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Sampled on tap at the brewhouse. A nicely well crafted brew with a mild hop palate and smooth malts. A warming ale, that really fits the ambiance of their brewhouse.
