Update:

Let us now sing the praises of the Roundhouse! Seriously, I loved this beer.

This pours with an intense malty caramel color. There’s hints of grapefruit and pine notes. It’s green and dank in all the right ways, with a slightly spicy peppery whisper. Each sip has this wonderful combination of grapefruit and pine with the right amount of carbonation to keep it light. Wonderful finish. Just fantastic all around. My favorite beer of the holidays.

Formerly (this is why I take notes. I forgot that I had this before. Loved it then as I love it now!):

I kept thinking about this brew long after I had it. In fact, I went back to the Eccentric Café on Oberon day of all times hoping for another pint of it. Alas, they removed it from the board. Here’s hoping it comes back—in bottle form, so I can take some with me to share and enjoy!

This pours a dark ruby-amber color. I get a thick resiny grapefruit-pine hop aroma. The flavor strikes a pleasing balance between malt and hop, with a great piney-resiny flavor that emerges. I thought this brew was simply wonderful, an all around enjoyable RedPA that raised the bar on my expectations for the style.

A Growler picked up in Atlanta June, 2014

A - Deep amber, with a 1 finger of tan head, and tons of lacing left on the glass. Slight clarity.

S - Huge citrusy hop aroma, slightly sweet malting. Brown sugar. Smells awesome

T - A hoppy red IPA just like the smell suggests. Well balanced, all around goodness. Sweet finish and lots of citrus and grapefruit hops.

M - Medium carbonation and oily slick taste

O - An awesome Red IPA. Bell's nails it. Again. Try this if you can find it! I don't think they bottled it so draft only.
