Was looking forward to this one. Very dark red, ruby highlights bring it short of brown. Nose is rich hoppy with some malty tones - hinting the devil is in the flavour. Flavour is more powerful than the aroma. Soft, light, but rich maltiness. Huge piney hop character, classic US IPA hop profile on the malt backbone. Lovely mouthfeel with moderately assertive bitterness. Light sweetness from the crystal malts follow through nicely on the finish, but the beer is still quaffable and nowhere near cloying (more than expected after reading the label).
Great beer - will be brewing Jamil’s recipe.
Clear, ruddy cola pour, off white to tan head. Menacing 12oz can. Tannic, red ale aroma, with wood, cherry, incense. Chalky chocolate notes up front, cypress, fairly dry, a little astringent. I'd characterize this as an imperial red. Hops abound. Like all red ales, it's a bit of a mishmash and even in its better moments, I wish that it was something slightly different. Pretty good though. Thanks to PorterPounder for the trade. PorterPounder (8284) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2017
Palm Beach Gardens, Total Wine - 12 oz can. Dark amber-brown pour, long lasting khaki colored head, light lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, dates and molasses. Flavor runs along the same lines, sweet and delicious, some nectarine fruitiness thrown in for good measure. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Yummy! hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2017
Rated on 9-26-2017. The appearance of this draft beer is a small head that is mostly lasting, dark reddish body, no carbonation observed, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, bitter, fruity, and malt. The flavor presents light-moderate bitterness, citrus hops, fruity, malt, and sweet. This beer is light bodied. It has a light bitter finish and very tasty. It is worth trying and a beer that I would drink again. thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2017
This draft brew from a beer bar was served at room temperature and poured a very small sized head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated body transparent ruby red brown colored body and a poor lacing. The nice aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt Irish red malt burnt malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again. Beergaard (386) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2017
Confusing and unworthy(?) visual and verbal rip off - guess you all know the two breweries that is being ripped off. That being said this is pretty tasty stuff. Dark red color, long lasting head. Aroma of tangerine and other sweet citrus fruits and some malt. Taste is a little more subtle. Decent hop character and a soldid malt backbone. Bitterness indeed but not too much.
