2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear, amber with off-white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of toffee and caramel and no hop presence. Taste is mainly caramel malt with just a hint of bitterness in the end. Medium bodied with a dry finish. This would be much better with some hops but as it stands there is nothing special about it. Kind of funny that it is labeled hoppy ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours amber red, not quite two inch head, nice lacing and retention. Herbal - caramel aroma. Taste is medium sweet, somewhat tart. Medium body, light bitterness, syrupy mouth feel. Finishes odd, like Robitussin and buttercream icing. Very strange.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Slightly hazy, reddish amber, small tan head, nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and malts, sort of roasty, combined with some fruit notes. Taste starts sweet a malty and turns hoppy and bitter towards the end, dry finish. Nice beer, easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.
A: reddish-amber color; clear with a moderate, creamy head of limited duration. Little lacing.
S: nice malty aroma with hints of bread and toffee.
T: light, grassy hops, a trace of citrus, and a light malt backbone. Hoppy for style, as is most obvious in the lingering, moderately bitter aftertaste.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy dark orange with a finger of white head. Aroma of caramel and dank herbal hops. Taste follows aroma, medium-heavy bitter. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Very good.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. A little harsh for my taste. Pale, but not as bitter as expected. Did not like this variety of hops. Not for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Great ruby red/brown appearance. Sweet (but not too sweet) malty aroma... maybe with a hint of pungent funk. A light IPA taste with a slight pungent flavor and fairly drinkable. I like it.

The Revel Red pours a clear rusty orange color with a light tan head that lasts a good while. The aroma is caramel and citrus. The flavor is caramel up front with a citrus finish. Overall this beer is decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a clear deep red with an off-white head. Lacing is great although the head retention is so-so.
Aroma is on the faint side but there it has a slightly sweet note with some biscuit and a touch of rye.
The flavor follows the aroma with more rye, hints of some moderately toasted malt and a very high bitterness. Hops are somewhat spicy nicely complimenting the rye notes. Finish is very dry.
Overall, a decent beer but honestly it is pretty average and nothing really sticks out. I do love rye beers but this one is just a tad watery and a bit unbalanced.

The aroma is yeast, caramel malts, light pine and a hint of tea. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, fruit, mild hop resin notes, mild tea, malts and a long and bitter/dry finish.
