Red Cockaded Ale is named after the Red Cockaded woodpecker, an endangered species that makes it home just miles from the brewery. Portions of the proceeds from the sale of this beer are donated to the Friends Of Texas Wildlife to help raise awareness of this species and other Texas Wildlife. This beer is deep red with a generous dose of malted rye and English crystal malts, giving the malt profile a sticky caramel property and substantial earthiness. The beer also has massive late charges of Pacific Northwest hops, as well as being generously dry hopped, making this beer intensely hoppy, displaying citrus, pine and resin in both aroma and flavor.

a little sweet and malty, with pine and citrus in the nose and flavor but hidden a little under waves of malt. adequately bitter and hearty. ok, but not a favorite.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Can:   Deep reddish caramel, thin to moderate foamy tannish head, nice lacing.   Husky aroma, malt forward, strong grainy notes.   Hop side, not so much.   Yeah, really husky on the nose.   Mealy and malty up front, also very husky.   This is a very much malt driven IIPA, but not a clean one.   Soft astringent grainy bitterness follows.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes way to husky and grainy for a Double IPA.   This was a let down... ugh, cant finish the rest...   Thanks Bill!
