Bottle from BottleSelect.com. Pours bright ruddy copper with a slight dark beige head. Aroma is malty with rather earthy hop. Full bodied. Flavor is earthy/resin over rather roasted malt. There’s a slight burn. I’m betting it’s hops. Finishes more resin than earthy. Great stuff.

12oz bottle poured into a goblet. Almost clear deep copper color with reddish hues and a small beige head. Piney hops, with nice nuttiness, some dried fruits, toffee and caramel. Faint oxidation. Sweet juicy malt, with firm bitterness, some alcohol burn and faint rum raisin notes. Full body, quite heavy, long alcoholic finish, soft carbonation and overall interesting though too strong.

DSG (5657) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 20, 2013
Bottle shared at kerenmk’s place. Clear deep red-amber with a beige head. Aroma of piney hops, a bit stale, and caramelly malt, slightly cookie-ish. Flavor has sweet chewy malt, caramelly and a bit biscuity and a bitter resinous hoppy finish with a bit of pine and light stale notes. Medium to full-bodied, a bit oily, with some alcohol. A bit too heavy.

574deadzone (997) - North Central, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 Pours a deep amber-garnet with a thinner khaki head that settles to a ring leaving streaks of soapy lace. Nose involves a fair amount of pine resin and woodsy notes, deep tones of caramel, nice spiciness, citric grapefruit and orange notes, some underlying toffee, and some dank earthy qualities. Taste is quite sweet, but well balanced with hefty bitterness. Heavier bodied, a touch syrupy, full, with a warm, tingly and lengthy bitter finish. A really nice brew, showcasing how to make an imperial red work. It may be restrained compared to some, but it’s very well balanced and enjoyable.

BelvidereIPA (140) - Belvidere, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle to snifter. Pours copper/red, light head. Lots of hops and citrus on the nose. Molasses, sugar and malts. Interesting, as its basically a Red IPA (whatever that is). Worth trying.

This is one big viscous nasty bitter hoppy beer. Finish is the same, simply roto till down the back of my throat. THERE YOU HAVE IT kik my ass.
