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.

(Draught) Pours a clear orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, and canned pineapple. Flavor of florals, caramel, earth, toasted grain, and honey with a moderately dry finish.

This one wins my seal of approval: superbly executed Red Ale variant. The Roundhouse is well balanced with just enough sweetness imparted by the honey addition to take the edge off. 12oz can

A little scent of fruity. Sweetness and little fruity. Small bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. No good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Draft. Amber/orange body with a frothy off-white (red-tinted) head. Enticing aroma of citrus, orange juice, grapefruit, raspberry, toasted grain, pineapple, bread. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Sweet, fruit taste to start, light lingering bitterness to finish. Clean and different. Enjoyable.

12 oz can from Growlers to Go, Short Pump, VA The ale poured a clear amber color with an off white head and lacing. The aroma of caramel malts is quickly detected. Nice ale. The higher ABV adds to the overall experience. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. The taste has some complex grapefruit and spices. The honey helps to smooth out the edges, The finish has some pine resin in the upper mouth

It was a little bit boring, but it was also delightfully easy to drink. It made it really a viable option for easy drinkin during a summer day

katrinaez (2232) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Pours medium red with a crisp aroma of hops and tropical fruit. Unfortunately, the aroma is the best part of the beer. medium mouthfeel with a flat hop taste, some sweetness at the end, would be best served ice cold, which is odd for a red, tap.

Pours a red brass color, light beige head, frothy and resilient. Outstanding look! Aroma is a basket of citrus and rustic grain, some sweet pine. The nose is fun. A bit of a drop off on the palate... Not as complex as expected. Pretty well balanced, caramel malts, grapefruit.... Pleasantly bitter finish with creamy edges. A good beer.
