Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy dark orange with a finger of white head. Aroma of caramel and dank herbal hops. Taste follows aroma, medium-heavy bitter. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Very good. grundsow (130) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. A little harsh for my taste. Pale, but not as bitter as expected. Did not like this variety of hops. Not for me. tnkw01 (1753) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Red color. Decent head. Weak hoppy aroma. Taste was even more weak. Bricks (1124) - Delaware, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Great ruby red/brown appearance. Sweet (but not too sweet) malty aroma... maybe with a hint of pungent funk. A light IPA taste with a slight pungent flavor and fairly drinkable. I like it. TheBear11D (365) - Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2014
The Revel Red pours a clear rusty orange color with a light tan head that lasts a good while. The aroma is caramel and citrus. The flavor is caramel up front with a citrus finish. Overall this beer is decent.
rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2014
Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a clear deep red with an off-white head. Lacing is great although the head retention is so-so.
Aroma is on the faint side but there it has a slightly sweet note with some biscuit and a touch of rye.
The flavor follows the aroma with more rye, hints of some moderately toasted malt and a very high bitterness. Hops are somewhat spicy nicely complimenting the rye notes. Finish is very dry.
Overall, a decent beer but honestly it is pretty average and nothing really sticks out. I do love rye beers but this one is just a tad watery and a bit unbalanced. wlajwl (6801) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 20, 2014
The aroma is yeast, caramel malts, light pine and a hint of tea. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, fruit, mild hop resin notes, mild tea, malts and a long and bitter/dry finish. rumproasts (5356) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2014
bottle. Amber with small head. Medium caramel malt with a crisp hoppy bite. Pretty solid for the style. Patrickctenchi (6586) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2014
Pours clear, red-orange/amber with a small tan head.
Toasty caramel malt, spicy hop aroma.
Taste is slightly bready caramel.
Herbal, spicy, orange-peel bittering.
