Notes/Commercial Description:
The Centennial hop is the centerpiece of our American Red Ale. Reprise pushes the limits of a single hop with an amazing bouquet and stunning bitterness all the way through. The citrus character provides an experience you will want to repeat. Reprise is crimson in color with aromas of citrus fruit and biscuit malt.

Not sure how old this beer is, but hope it's relatively fresh.
The beer pours a rusty brown with a generous amount of sticky off-white head. The nose is mildly bitter without sweetness. The taste presents all bite and no bark, all penetration and no foreplay...it's just a super bitter mess with none of the redeeming hop characteristics I look for in a good red ale. The mouthfeel is equally terrible as no caramel sweetness precedes or follows the bitterness...it's just grapefruit rind all day. I did not enjoy this beer and think it could use a lot more sweetness.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

Orange-amber color. I had only poured about 3-4 ounces into my 12 ounce glass when the foam quickly rose to the brim of the glass. The head remained as bubble-bath, root beer float-like suds for several minutes after the pour, preventing me from consuming the beverage. Left dish detergent like lacing all over the glass.

Aroma of brown sugar, roasted almonds, with pine and dish soap.

Malt flavor hints at wheat toast. Touch of brown sugar sweetness. Then the hops take over with an aggressive and pungent laundry detergent flavor. Finishes with a rough, off-balances bitterness that never really leaves.

Medium bodied. Ample carbonation.

Purchased this beer from the closeout section of my local liquor store at $3.99. No freshness date on the bottle. To be fair, it was probably several months expired. Nonetheless, it was not a pleasant experience and I would not revisit it if it were free. Time to go pour the remaining 18 ounces down the drain.
