#2 in the line of beers I received in a trade back in the spring pours amber frothy head,aromas are of caramel malts too bad the flavor doesn’t match the smell NikkTwist (3202) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Draft at Eulogy. Poured a clear dark orange red brown with a large foamy head. Medium hops meet medium malt. Juicy red fruits. Plums. Strawberries. Caramel apple. Some floral notes, even some earthy notes might be hiding in there, but mostly a gentle brown sugared IPA. Medium-light body but the sugar makes it feel fuller. dmac (6215) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2013
12oz bottle drank at Artisans. Poured a clear deep red/amber with a smaller light beige foamy head. Aroma is nice and hoppy some slight pineapple juice and toast. Fuller bodied with a big mouthfeel and stronger carbonation. Flavor is no where near as hoppy as the aroma, notes of grains and cereal, hop cones, seltzer, dry caramel and dry molassess. Meh, aroma starts off solid but falls off big time in the aroma.

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. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 23, 2015
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent looking hazy red color with no head nor any lacing.
The smell had a rich herbal citrus to lightly spiced over caramel maltiness.
The taste was slightly sweet herbal citrus over the caramel maltiness again. A mostly herbal to caramel aftertaste leading to a semi-wet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed mostly rounded out and fairly smooth (I wonder how old this is).
Overall, I say a decent APA, nothing spectacular but still worthy of having again, preferably with food. LinusStick (3447) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2011
A decent beer, though I would not use the word "hoppy" anywhere near this beer. Aroma was like a scotch ale. Strong heavy malt with a little smokiness. Pour was a burnt orange with just a few off white bubbles for a head. Taste was all malt. Heavy burnt caramel malt, toffee and some burnt flavors that pop up after the swallow. There is a slightly bitter grapefruit juice-like bitterness that sticks on the top of the mouth and tonsils, but that is the only indication that there are hops in this beer. Nice carbonation.
