Pours an almosy crystalline amber color. Aroma is very muted, not much of anything going on. Flavor is even a touch more benign. Nothing offensive, but nothing spectacular either.

Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Amber. Small tan head. Sweet, rich, lightly biscuty malt and some minty, resinous, vegetal hops. Some unnameable off flavor, also. Medium/full body, smooth.

Pours with a three fingered, cream head that goes slowly and leaves some lace. Nice clear, deep amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is cherry and caramel. Flavor is caramel but barely sweet, sweet and sour cherry. High ABV stays hidden. Some bitter aftertaste. The ABV is 9.8% since we have a strange law here in NH limiting beer to 10%. $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Capitol Convenience Concord, NH.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Malty, caramel and brown sugar, with a huge hop nose, of citrus and pine. Pours dark amber with little to no head. Very malty, caramel, with a strong catty hop flavor, and a little piney. The catty flavor is overwhelming and ruins the beer for me.

The 12 oz bottle poured a clear caramel color with an off white head that turned quickly to a thin lace. A bouquet of hops aroma filled the top of my Duvel tulip. Other wonderful aroma’s that follow are pine and caramel malt’s. This ale has a nice creamy mouth feel with a dry finish to it .It has flavors of pine, citrus, along with sweet malt with a nice warming alcohol flavor. This is a great offering from Redhook it would be nice to see it in their seasonal rotation

12oz. bottle: This one pours a ruby tinged darker amber color. There was very little head, and it dropped off quickly. It has a nice nose to it. I get some citrusy hops, with a faint whiff of pineapple. The taste is quite good. A nice full caramel malt body, but not too sweet. There is a nice bitterness sitting on top of it. This drinks real easy. I hope this becomes a regular addition to their lineup.

9.8% one-off, brewed and available only in NH. Pours dark copper, with a half-inch off-white head. Clearish body and average retention. A varied amount of streak and dots of lacework continue throughout the glass. Aromatics are laced with tropical fruit, fresh malt, and warming alcohol. A hint of vanilla-nougat steps forward as it warms. Floral and estery in nature, but not pungent. On the sticky side of medium for mouthfeel, and carbonation is spot-on. Slightly creamy. No syrupy character. The pallet is where the brilliance is in this beer. It starts off with plenty of hops in the flavoring, with enough bittering to keep the beer in barleywine range. Fresh malt comes through, with some faint doughy notes, but it’s strictly playing a supporting role. Again, the malt is just enough to put the beer in barleywine territory. With each sip the fruity essence of the hops come through more and more. Peaches, melons, and tangerines. Definately plenty of that Amarillo/ Simcoe character. The beer finishes fairly dry and clean, with some lingering boozyness and more fresh fruits. Damn, this beer has grown on me. The restrained malt character, fullish attenuation, and hopping character of the beer puts it well within IIPA territory. Extremely drinkable and alcohol is decieving. Some additional hops in the nose, and a kick up on the ABV would put this beer closer to a 5. Definately one to drink fresh, if you’re looking for a hop fix. Too bad it’s $12.99 a four-pack, probably the best Redhook I’ve ever had.
