COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the beginning, there was an innovative West Coast brewer by the name of Pete, who developed a wicked-good and ground-breaking American ale. This super-tasty beer boasted Brewer’s Gold hops used for dry-hopping and an abundance of specialty malt, which gave it a great character unlike any other beer available. It quickly gained a loyal following among beer lovers, and became known the world-over as the defacto-standard American Brown Ale. Pete is no stranger to the Akron area, having made his Cocoa-Pete’s Chocolates in North Canton and where we first connected. So now, Hoppin’ Frog along with this creative brewing icon have developed Re-Pete 2X as a double version of the original, to pay homage to the innovative energy of American brewers, and deliver a great beer to TRUE BEER LOVERS!

Dorwart (2573) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Very small, almost non existent head of fine bubbles. A little head forms during a vigorous swirling but not much. Rich sweet and malts aroma with brown sugar, toffee, soy sauce and boiled vegetables. Color is a nice crimson brown. Soft and malty mouthfeel with a slight bit of carbonation. More sweet malts, roasted grains, caramel and cough syrup. Moderate alcohol presence but the strong malt bill keeps it from burning. Finished malty and a bit dry. Also a bit pasty lingering in the mouth. A very good and easy drinking brown ale. Good stuff!

Tap @Taphouse, Cph. Pours clear red with a small, staying creamy white film head. Aroma has fat caramel, toasted, light toffee, vinious. Low carbonation, fine dry and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of sweetness, caramel, very chewy, vinious. A hint of vanilla, some firm roasted caramel. Gets a bit sweet overall, but still feels splendidly balanced.

BlazerT (924) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep brown with small to medium, semi-thick, light brown head. Poor head retention and moderate lacing. Moderate to heavy malty aroma - caramel, some roasted malts, nutty notes, booze is noticeable. Aroma is light heavy sweet with light heavy bitter notes - long, stable, slightly intensifies thru the degustation. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, finish is caramel, semi-bitter, slightly nutty and cocoa. In overall this tastes like good Old Ale empowered with some cocoa and nutty notes. ABV is moderately hidden, slightly warming in the end.
