On tap at The Lionheart in Albany, NY.

Pours a clear rusty amber color, with a half inch head, and only a small amount of lacing.

Smells like pine, caramel, butterscotch, and citrusy hops.

The taste is similar. This one is a really delicious hoppy red. There are tastes of rye bread, caramel, bitter pine resin, grapefruit, orange, pineapple, etc. This one is a little bit sweet, but mostly bitter and bready. Delicious.

This one has a medium body, and a great slightly creamy mouthfeel. This one is really, really drinkable and tasty.

Another great beer from RD, I'm getting a good intro to them lately.

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.

This beer is something special... from the first pour you realize this is not your typical red ale... yeah the color is red but before it even touches your lips your hit with a piney hop aroma as well as a malty backbone full of crystal malts and fruity estery goodness. On the first sip it follows the nose but with abundant citrus hops and those crystal malts lend a sweetness in the after taste. The mouthfeel is of medium density and is very easy drinking and as far as the 9%abv you just can't tell it's there until it's too late : ) no fusel alcohol no hot aftertaste and in a single descriptor amazing !!! It takes a lot of skill to stay in a guidline and then to bend it just enough to let the world know this is unique. Very hard to get outside of the Hudson valley of NY or upper NJ but if you can find this get it period you will not be disappointed.

Growler brought from Albany, NY to Boston, MA before cooling and tasting. Enjoyed over a USA World Cup qualifying game out of a standard pint glass. Poured a thin head and quickly settled. Surprisingly piney aroma for a Red; Red IPA is more accurate. Quick bitter taste left abruptly. Maltiness came in for a bit and then the lingering hoppiness returned. An odd juniper taste lingered longer. As I sat and the beer warmed the aroma became more pungent. Really interesting beer that is definitely worth a try if you can get your hands on it.
