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.

I had this on-tap at 4 Hands on a recent trip to St. Louis and before a Cardinal ballgame.

A: Quite possible the most unusual color I've ever seen in a red. It poured an EXTREMELY saturate orange-crimson color (almost as if blood had been mixed in), with a finger or so foamy, dense head.

S: Very floral and fruity, but not a hop bomb by any stretch of the imagination.

T: Very fresh fruity, and with a really nice (and memorable) white pepper notes. Very unusual indeed!

M: Creamy and then some, with sort of a grainy, cake batter-like thickness, and ridiculous lacing.

O: While this was a bit more understated that the initial appearance dictated, this was pretty remarkable.

Purchased at The Dubliner in St. Louis.

A. A very pretty beer with a ruby. Leaves a very nice tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

S. A nice hoppy aroma that combines floral and citrus scents with a faint backdrop of pine.

T. Definitely a nice hop taste that is very crisp. Finishes with a nice floral finish.

O. A very enjoyable beer for hop-heads.

750ml bottle that I was very lucky to get from the Mike at STL Hops. He had this hand bottled (along with two others from 4 Hands) just for me. Very much appreciated.

Pours a very nice coppery red color with a good amount head. The aroma is like opening a package of hops to brew - dank, sticky hops. Some bready sweetness works its way in as well.

Taste starts with a hit of bitterness from the hops, followed by a caramel sweetness that goes well with the hops. The hops attack again - grapefruit, pine, and resin. I know this is called a red ale, but the hops are higher than usual for the style.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side and carbonation is a little light. That might be due to the fact that this is one of the very first bottles of this beer.

I've got two more bottles of 4 Hands beer and I'm very much looking forward to them after this one. Great brew.

Poured from the tap a dark amber-orange color with two fingers of creamy white head.

Aroma of grapefruit and pine and a hint of malts.

Big taste of juicy grapefruit and piney hops. Nice malty note in the back for balance. Bitter bite to the finish.

Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation.

Very nice and highly recommended.
