Hoppy Belgian Ale. This red ale is all about hops. It is an American-Belgian fusion of beer styles taking imported Belgian caramel malts and bitch slapping it with a heavy handed dose of American hops. Expect hints of mango, pineapple, and citrus to hit your nose with an assertive hop presence.

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a dark red/brown sort of color with a light tan to off white foamy/semi-fizzy head. Light stringy to bubbly lace. The aroma had some tropical fruit, some pine, dry funky sort of grassy edge and then gets yeasty as it warms. The flavor was somewhat sweet with a touch of the bitter, the tart and funky maltiness. Grassy edges come in to bump the balance into a slight earthy malty backbone. Crisp grassy hops and funk hit the aftertaste and ride on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, leans more towards a Belgian IPA than an IPA, still good for what it is, I wouldnt mind having again for me.

Aroma is tropical fruit, pine, yeasty, dry, funk, pretty balanced. Appearance is reddish brown, light tan head, hazy. Taste is pine, tropical fruit, Belgian yeast, weird dryness, malty, eh. Mouthfeel is medium body, light crisp carbonation, syrupy dry pine yeast aftertaste. Overall, not my jam.

Its definitely got that wonderful fruity aroma, and a wonderful red pour. It lacks a nice head and tastes a little too similar to one-hop IPAs at the end, but overall I would say its a pretty decent beer.

Pours a deep amber/brown with a thick sticky tan colored head atop. Floral and grassy hops dominate the nose along with light spiced phenols, quite spiced in fact, more of a pepper and clove note. The grassy hops are big on the palate with a dryer malt base, phenols give off spice but not in your face, somewhat earthy in the finish.

Shared 16 ounce can. Pours a clear amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is grapefruit, malt, tropical, and caramel. Interesting in a nice way.

Captivating red color with lasting head of white, smells earthy & malty with a moderate hop finish. Texture is creamy. A reliable go-to red.

Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of caramel, citrus. Tartness in the finish along with some vinegar and dusty grain notes.
