bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from tap into Tulip. Appearance: Somewhat dark red with thick off white head and nice lacing lines. Aroma: Citrus hops and caramel malts. Taste: Strong slightly sweet caramel base balanced by a nice hop bite with orange, grapefruit and pine. Ends somewhat bitter. A well balanced beer. Palate: Moderate carbonation, full creamy body with a very dry finish. Overall: Great example of a Double Red Ale. This should be canned.

Enjoyed on draft at the brewery, winter 2010. Rich amber color. Some black tea-like aromas are noted on the nose. Candy sweet on the palate which is nice, along with a nice hop snap to round it out. Rather easy drinking for such a high ABV beer, and I wish it was served in the normal pint glass!

Alphadelic (2198) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Sweet cakey hops on the nose. Sweet carrot cake and light bitterness which holds for a short while but barely stands up to the caramel thickness.
