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.
