Had this a few months ago at the brewpub. From what I understand this was an experimental batch, but it was the best beer I've had from BMB (and I've had quite a few).

Red Zeppelin is a hoppy take on an Amber or Red ale. It's bitter and hoppy like an IPA with a medium body. The color is amber with a reddish hue. This beer is loaded with new school hops! Citra, Sorachi Ace, Motueka and a couple others that I'm blanking on. These hops give the beer a wonderful, tropical fruitiness without it being too sweet. The nose was primarily grapefruit, but the flavor was layered with lemon and tropical notes on top of the wonderful grapefruit. The beer is very well balanced and drinks much more like an American IPA than your typical amber.

They need to bring this beer back. Bottle it, can it, I don't care, but it would be a travesty if this beer was just a brewpub one-off. It's nice to see BMB experimenting with hoppy beers. I feel like a majority of the new beers have been barrel aged, so it's refreshing to see them executing a new style and "an experiment" so effectively.
