A- Pours a pretty vivid ruby/copper color. Had about a half-finger of fluffy off-white head.

S- Floral hops with a bit of pine, lots of toasted, biscuity/grainy malts. Smells pretty tasty.

T- A pretty balanced blend of toasted malts and floral hop bitterness, a bit of caramel malt sweetness.

M- Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, feel is smooth and dry.

O- Another solid, way drinkable beer from Jupiter. Definitely give this one a try.

I am in town doing the bart and beer tour. This thing is really cool. If in town try it. no driving and lots of beer. oh yeah alright beer so far.

10oz pour

color- Cherry Red This thing is bright red as it goes.

Taste- fruity in flavor with a bite.
there is some hops that makes it a little interesting. I was surprised that it so hoppy. it weighs in at 6.5% the bartender told me. he was very informed on his beers and made my Sun. pleasurable.

All and all this beer would not make my prime-time list or even my repeat this beer list but that doesn't mean it's not good. i am just not that hoppy of a fan. Surprise for a red....

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: A dark red/copper color, more than what I would expect from a a red ale. Not much of a head.

S: Smells pretty good, with some hints of toasted malts.

T: It has some good maltyness to it, but also a bit of hoppyness that I wasn't expecting. Nonetheless, it makes for a pretty good drink that's a bit bitter and a bit sweet.

M: Nice and dry. Just the right thickness.

D: Pretty easy to drink, as nothing about it is offensive.

A- Poured a dark copper-red/brown, somewhere between an IPA and an amber. No head, just a small trace of a halo. No lacing, no nothing. Fine body, no head.

S- Great nose, especially after a good swirl. Bitter hoppiness, quite floral, toasty, biscuity, some sweetness. Smelled quite good. There was a fine balance between the floral/bitter hops and the toasted malts. It had the standards of an amber, only one better.

T- Initially it hits with biscuit/toast, quickly getting stripped bare by the bitter hops, and glides into a toasted sweetness with some caramel/toffee flavors.

M- Warm, slightly dry, a nice crisp hop/malt bitterness. A good, residual mouthfeel both bitter and sweet.

D- A pretty good beer. If you're ever at Jupiter, this and the pizza with yukon gold potatoes and bacon make for a nice afternoon.

Redspot is a somewhat deceiving name as this is a pronouncedly dark brew, but there are hints of golden amber that give it a nice finish. Head poured clumpy but quickly dissipated into a pencil-thin lace that stuck around for a good while.

The beer has a moderate hop odor, but few other scents come through.

The flavor is a bit more complex than the scent, although only a bit. Mostly what you get is hops, but it's subdued by a decent malt character.

Mouthfeel is less viscous than I would have liked. Washed limply over the tongue with a mild alcohol burn.

Despite everything, Redspot does go down pretty easy, which might explain why it is the signature beer of a pub located in a college town.

The Redspot was an excellent choice on tap at Jupiter. The beer poured a deep red with a medium white head on top of it. It smelled of roasted malt and some spice/sugar. The taste was exceptionally smooth and deep and the malt has to be the best malt Jupiter offers. Recommended if you're in Berkeley, try the IPA and then the Redspot.
