On tap at Studio 35 on 9/22/12

A) Rusty brown color of medium depth. 1/2 inch head thins quickly. Thin layer of retention. Pretty good rings of lace.

S) Tropical citrus hop notes are ripe in the aroma: peach, pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit. Toasty bread with caramel overtones.

T) Gripping pine tar leads off and opens to tropical goodness with juicy flavors similar to the aroma. This is very dry. Unobtrusive malts; lots of toasted bread and hints or caramel (it does seem a tad maltier as it warms).

M) Medium body with moderately high and smooth carbonation. Resinous and prickly.

D) I really like this one. Quite hoppy with enough balance. Underrated.

Oh so close to hitting a home run on this one. Looks great on the pour. Flavor profile is great. Nice rye tones with the hops clearly there. It seems to be lingering a bit more as time goes on, or maybe it's just that the beer is blasting my palate. This is much like Hop Rod Rye, but not quite as big. I like this beer.

This is like a hoppy Red Ale.

Pours out a very nice, deep amber color with a decent amount of fluffy head.

The aroma has a lot of citrus, grapefruit and peach notes from the hops and some bready notes.

The taste is a great balance between citrus and floral hops along with a nice bitterness and a bready, malty quality that finishes nice and dry. Very easy to drink and no alcohol can be detected.

This is great and drinks very much like a hoppy Red Ale or Amber Ale. Very tasty and one of the better beers from The Brew Kettle.

22oz bottle into a Sierra Nevada Hop Tulip

Pours an clear amber red. A departure from the usual American IPA, for sure. A nice two finger head sits atop the beer, slowly receding and leaving sticky lace all over the glass.

The nose is interesting. Bright citrus notes from the hops mingle with the aroma of freshly crushed grain. It smells like I'm sticking my head in the rain bag. Atypical for an American IPA, but it smells intriguing and delicious at the same time.

Taste is as balanced as the nose. Light, sweet malts pair with bitter citrus hops on the palate. The bitterness lingers long after the sweetness washes away. Very well crafted.

Mouth is medium, but slick. Pleasing.

Overall, this beer is a success as an IPA, but it would also be a hit as an Imperial Amber. A really good beer from The Brew Kettle.
