Steel Toe Rainmaker Double Red Ale, 6.5 % ABV. Brewed and bottled by Steel Toe Brewing, St. Louis Park, Minnesota. "When you find yourself parched, Rainmaker brings refreshment. Brewed with caramel and dark roasted malts then doused with a torrent of hops, this double red is sure to please, no dancing required."
Beautifully burnished crimson coloring, nearly opaque, under a full 1/2 inch cream-toned head, long lasting. Looks great.
Aromatics are outstanding, billowing out far afar, an utterly enriching and invigorating blend of hops and malt. Ripe fruit, citrus, prickly pine, a little apple and cherry, all spill forth. Absolutely inviting.
Taste: Past the lips, On the tongue, and down the throat, it is all that and more. Refreshment first of all, followed by wave after wave of deliciousness. Hops are on top, with caramel malt and cocoa flavors emerging at their heels. Delicate bitter bite nips at the tastebuds with each new sip, sweet malt providing smoothness and succor on the way down.
This reminds me of a milder Surly Furious. That's a good sign that I like it. Ah, this is nice stuff. Deee-lish.

A- pours a clean, translucent amber. Ruby and orange accents. Light khaki head of about a finger that provides nice lacing. A fine looking amber here.
S- An intense blend of citrus hops and sweet caramel. Orange and pineapple matches the sweetness well.
T- Flavor is maybe a little more subdued than the nose, but solid nonetheless. An abundance of hop character and an aggressive charred caramel and toasted bread base to balance it out.
M- Mid body. Almost seems somewhat sessionable with its easy drinkability. Sharp, crisp finish.
O- This is the second beer I have had from this brewery, and like the last one, Rainmaker flat out brings it! An aggressively hopped amber that is one of the better ones on the market. Would pair really well with a chargrilled burger topped with caramelized onions.
$6.99 for a 22oz bomber
