Dogbrick (12383) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 Sample at Heorot in Muncie, IN. The beer pours a clear brownish-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark malt, caramel and hops. Medium body with flavors of piney hops and malt plus a touch of citrus. The finish is hoppy up front and settles to a sweet malty aftertaste. Decent Imperial Red overall.

crossovert (12017) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Defnitely a full-on red ale. Big malt notes combine with an interesting hop bill that isnt too harsh.

Growler acquired in trade with Sephiroth (thanks!). Poured a medium amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, green leaf hopiness, fruity and some caramel. I got some ice tea in there as well. Tastes were fruity with caramel, and some citrus. Light on the hopdog bitterness scale. Thinner body.
