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.

jgb9348 (5988) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2017
Super crisp ruby and deeply bronze and browned body with a large, five centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, bright earthy hops, toffee, grass, floral notes and quite a bit of toffee and caramelised sugars. Medium-bodied; Assertive toffee and earthy flavours at first with the malt hitting hard, then turning hoppy and bitter with the grass and flowers then showing some light sweetness from caster sugar and then some caramel. Aftertaste is rich and all over the place, ranging from earthy to bitter from hops to sweet - nice and robust. Overall, a nice beer for the stye style and a tightly packed Red hued IPA with a distinctly earthy flavour and a lot of caramelised notes. I sampled this twleve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 15-November-2016 for US$2,64 sampled at home in Washington on the day my Red Wings play the Washington Capitals on 09-February-2017.

Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2017
I donít taste the honey it promises, but the hoppiness of this beer is one that I can tolerate. Itís got a kick, as is expected, but itís not so over-the-top that itís not enjoyable. Itís strong, but it levels out and itís definitely drinkable, even if itís hoppier than Iíd usually like.

oobawa (879) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 30, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2017 Curious brew, unexpectedly toasted and rich, with a deep caramel-biscuit sweetness set against insane hop fruitiness. Hits a tropical fruit salad note then grows a honeybun decadence before fading out with a firm hoppy bite. Tasty.

Onslow (1452) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Pour from a 12z can. Deep reddish amber brew with great persistent head. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is notable malt up front, great hoppy flourish emerging in the middle and toward the end. Ends dry but smooth, you can taste the honey a few seconds after the swallow. Hops are crisp - cirtus, a little fruit and floral. A nicely balanced brew with strong malt backbone that retains a lively and agile hops profile. Should have picked up some of this sooner.

Hinez57 (248) - Clinton, Mississippi, USA - JAN 18, 2017
Note: Iím sick with comprised senses at the time of this rating. Musk melon, mango, dirty sweet malt, pomegranate, and a mix of citrus makeup the nose. Deep copper moderately red, off-clear, thin tan non-lasting toast head. Flavors reflect aroma with solid malt backbone showing through, less tropical than nose. Palate is perfect with a medium-medium light mouthfeel with lingering finish thatís dry and bitter but not fatiguing at all. All over very good beer, looking forward to it when I can enjoy it fully.

Can. Pours red-golden, cloudy, frothy tan head. Aroma of pineapple, flowers, caramel, citrus, honey. Taste of honey, floral, citrus, caramel. Very well-balanced.
