COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hazy amber beer with a tidy cream coloured head. Light palate, crisp and semi dry. Mild orange hops, tangerine too. Slightly tangy - sour. Minerally sharp finish. Fresh, interesting!

Tmoney99 (14985) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Draft sample at BV. Poured a clear dark ruby color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted balanced and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted complex bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectation where again exceeded.

This beer pours a clear copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is hoppy with notes of malt and spice.
