COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Exit 9 is better known as ‘the Rutgers University exit,’ so we crafted this Hoppy Scarlet Ale as a nod to their school color, scarlet,” says founder/president Gene Muller, a Rutgers Alumnus.

Created by Head Brewer Casey Hughes, Exit 9 Hoppy Scarlet Ale is a richly flavored red beer crafted with a variety of domestic and imported malts and a classic American yeast strain. It is assertively hopped with Amarillo, Centennial, Chinook and Citra hops for a bouquet with complex notes of citrus and tropical fruits and an appropriate bitterness in the finish. Hughes recommends it with spicy foods, such as gumbo or curry, as well as alongside rich blue or sharp cheddar cheeses, or just by itself.

brokensail (16440) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 9, 2011
A: The beer pours a hazy amber color with a small off-white head. S: Quite hoppy, the way I like my red ales. A bunch of citrus peel with a bit of grass and a mild pine note. There is a little bit of grapefruit juice which gives it a light acidity. There’s also a touch of bread and toffee. T: A bit more citrusy on the flavor, which I like. Plenty of grapefruit, tangerine, and mild pine. There’s a mild grass note and a fair bit of bread and toast. Only a mild caramel sweetness. M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation. O: A pretty nice beer. Nice hoppy flavor, the nose just had that little acidity that didn’t quite do it for me.

Capped 750 from michael-pollack. Pours hazy dark ruddy amber with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Strong citrus aroma. Full bodied. Quite a mix of fruity/floral/citrus/pine. There is something tropical, but it’s not clear. Pretty sure it’s not pineapple, but it might be mango. Finishes floral bitter with some underlying malt sweetness. But it ends beautifully bitter.
