COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Substantial amounts of late-kettle hop additions and dry-hopping yields a heady blend of fruity aromas of pineapple, peach and citrus. Those aromas continue into a crisply bitter hop presence across the tongue, but the judicious use of toasted and caramel specialty malts prevents the hop intensity from overwhelming the palate. Locally sourced Michigan honey creates a smooth, dry finish that pulls everything together. The India Red Ale style is a variation on the IPA, but with more caramel and toasted malt character and a reddish hue. Roundhouse was first brewed at our original brewery in downtown Kalamazoo in 2009.

Smells like a Citrusy ipa, pretty strong hops bitterness...some dark malt taste too...little too bitter for me now though...some coffee maybe? Strong flavor but pretty one dimensional

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Exciting mixture of tropical fruit, dried plum, and malty sweetness hits the nose. Unfiltered orange-red-mahogany hue with a thin, white head is seen. Fantastic flavor that reminds me of a winter warmer is present, but the senses are confused with pine and tropical notes. The honey smooths the finish, but the taste of honey is not overwhelming. Incredibly unique brew that stands alone from other IPAs. Cheers!

Can. hazy red-amber color with tan head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness, fruity hops and light pine. Taste adds more resin/pine, toffee, honey, bread, grapefruit and black tea. Medium-heavy body, low-moderate carbonation, sticky, dry with caramel fruity finish.

3.5
kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2017
Can. Pours a clear dark copper body with a one inch frothy beige head that left some sticky lacing. The nose is caramel and toasty maltiness with a piney hoppiness. The flavor is pretty balanced between the sweet toasty and caramel malt and the hop bitterness. The sweetness is a bit bigger up front, the bitterness outlasts on the back end. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty tasty beer.

A very nice IPA. Pours red and has a light sweetness to it. Lots of tropical fruits and citrus and an aggressive bitterness.
