Pours a hazy copper with a white foam head. Aroma is lots of clove, and some banana and hints of nut and cracker. Flavor is clove and nut and caramel. More on the dry side. This is definitely a clove bomb. Not great.

Detroit Beer Co. Hop Grenade
First I have to say, why dont you bottle this? Got this on draft at the Detroit beer company. Bartender would not give me a growler despite my pleas. Poured a SRM of about 12. Lots of soapy lacing on the glass. Lots of sweet malt aroma with tangerines and Resin. Flavor is much of the same. Beautifully balance of malt and hops. Medium/full body with a creamy mouthfeel. Lasting hop bitterness on finish. Well done.

Detroit Beer Co. Detroit Red
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice hazy golden orange to yellow but also having a light brown flowing through and all around in the color. The head was about a half fingerís worth and trickled in its lacing. The smell had a roasty caramel malt and slight nuttiness try to invade but maintain a healthy background. The taste was mainly sweet and roasty adding a light element of nuttiness separate of the sweet and roasty flavorings. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat smooth but also had a decent sharpness about it as well. Overall, good beer for the most part that I would have again.
