4.11/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured from the half-growler (cost: $10 at Westmere Beverage) into a Piraat tulip-snifter-type glass. Body is reddish amber with a 1+ finger khaki-colored head. Leaves some "legs" of lacing.

S: First impression is that it's a big, malty nose - caramel malt, toffee and butterscotch all come to mind. Also citrus, herbal and piney hops noted after I get past the malt.

T: First impression: expecting a bigger malt profile based on the nose, I was surprised by the dominant hop bitterness. Primarily green and raw - think pine, pine needles and pine resin. Also some grapefruit peel or pith. Caramel malt underneath. Seems tea-like at times. Finishes with a palate-puckering bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. Some heat from the 9% ABV is felt in the belly and as a spiciness on the palate.

M: Medium in heft, maybe a bit heavier. Carbonation is fine but active - modest sharpness to it.

O: Good stuff. Think of this as a Red DIPA rather than an American Amber/Red, as it's really hoppy and with a bigger body than your standard Amber/Red.

Serving type: growler

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Kroovy is a brownish-red color and is pretty clear. Pours a moderate sized dense creamy head with good retention and lacing. Aroma consists of resinous and citric hops, as well as caramel malts. Just a touch of floral aromatic hops as well.

Taste starts with resinous hops, then grapefruit, tangerine, and bread, with a floral, piney, caramel malt finish. Mouthfeel is a bit lighter than average for an Imperial Red with average carbonation and a crisp finish.

Serving type: growler
