COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Often referred to as Burning River Pale Aleís 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.

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.

DocJitsu (1064) - 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.

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.

jahshuwuh (441) - USA - SEP 23, 2014
Dark blood red color with half a finger of off white head. Smells of grassy hops, celery, a bit of funky moss. Sharp hop bitter bite up front but decently balanced with a slight caramel malt sweetness, a little apple. Most of the taste is from the hops, hard to distinguish much else. Not bad, just not my cup of...beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ADesenberg (662) - Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Draft: Big...malty beer that is then punched with a healthy citrus hop bite. This is a very nice beer, and the style is something unique that you donít expect. Very good beer, will sneak up on you if you arenít careful.

The color is a murky amber red with a short light-tan head with good retention and great lacing. The nose is a bit of roasted nuttiness with some caramel, light fruity and some citrus. The taste has some malt sweetness with some citrus and pine hop flavor. Finishes clean and semi dry. Medium bodied with a moderate/ high carbonation. Enjoyable and drinkable but unremarkable.
