Exit 9 is a full-bodied amber ale with substantial notes of citrus and piny hops complimented by sweet caramel malt and tropical fruit with a crisp clean finish. The alcohol content of 9% isn't too noticeable. Overall, a really nice imperial amber ale.

4.58/5  rDev +12.5%

appearance: more on the golden apprearnce with
a little red glow. how can you call this a scarlet ale when you did not accomplish the color wanted?

smell: huge hop aroma, lots of pine, some citrus

taste: in that nugget nectar category but less power. very nice balance of caramel and hops. This is a easy drinking 9% imperial red.

mouthfeel: medium bodied

drinkability: This may be one of there best beers. Very nice.. what kept this from being a an A+ was the finish. The hop flavor did not linger at all. kinda falls off. otherwise. I like a lot : )

This is one great beer. It starts with an incredible smell that dominates throughout the drink. It's citrus, pine, tropical fruits with just a touch of malt. The flavor mirrors the aroma with a nice balance and then the hops hit you. Just a beautiful meld of aroma and flavor One of the best beers for me period.

Pours a hazy orange-ish to amber color with an off white head. In the aroma, big citrus and pine hops. In the taste, citrus to pine hops and a nice malt backing, but hops are definatly bigger. A small hop bite and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry orange citrus in the aftertaste. Nice big hops but lack of malt, the hops just override everything, but I like it!

Poured into a shaker pint. Has a hazy dark amber/scarlet color. Thin white head dissapated to a film but has excellent lacing.

Aroma is of juicy hops. Citrus hops and a bit of malt. Smells great.

Taste is the same. Sticky hop flavor. Nice malt to balance it out and a nice hop bitterness in the finish to wreck your palate.

Mouthfeel is nice and dry with a great carb.

Overall this beer is awesome. Get it if you can. You will be hearing about it soon.

4.47/5  rDev +9.8%

A: Honey-golden hue, topped with a modest and creamy head that leaves tin, cascading rings of head behind

S + T: Soft malt sweetness wonderfully complemented with a citrus and tropical scents and flavours. The bottle describes this quite accurately, including mention of 'appropriate' bitterness on the finish

M + D: Medium body, somewhat slick hop oiliness that dissipates slowly and smoothly. Alcohol is very well masked, and when the scent and flavours are balanced as well as they are in this beer, it makes for a really enjoyable experience. There tends to be a new Exit series release each summer when I come up to LBI, and I look forward to them more and more with each release I try.

A - Reddish, amberish hue, slightly cloudy appearance. A little straw colored head, a bit of lacing while drinking.

S - With the hops, the expected grapefruit. A refreshing hoppy cleanliness. Wonderful clean aroma.

T - A very tasty beer for a hophead like myself. More citrus than pine. Very good.

M - Hops tingle the palette, the beer is pleasantly not overly carbonated. Medium body.

O - Being a Rutgers graduate, I'm very happy FF made such a great beer to celebrate my old stomping grounds! I may have to take a few bombers to an RU football game this fall. Well done, FF!

Go RU!

4.45/5  rDev +9.3%

Iam a sucker for a big hopped up red,Iam not sure this is a red but its damn good.Poured into an imperial nonic more a of copper tinged burnt orange with a creamy-like one finger white crown that left two full rings of lace as it settled.Big pithy hop aromas along with tropical fruit and slight pine resin,the alcohol presents a little sweetness but its not overbearing,a hint of caramel as well but the hops win out.Big resiny and tropical-like hop flavors overtop of caramel malt and sweet alcohol,to be honest to me it tastes like a DIPA should taste like or what alot of American Strongs do taste like.Whatever the style its an outstanding beer in my mind,I will buy a few of these in the near future.

Amber color, not as dark or red as I expected. Hazey with a very fine white lace, in a smaller head that dissipated faster than I wanted. Hoppy with a semi sweet taste. Very aromatic, a sweet citrus hops that you'd expect more in a Belgium Ale. Overall, a very enjoyable beer. Highly recommend.

This brew pours out as a really nice looking amber color, the head is fizzy and white. It kind of fades into a little ring around the glass. The lacing really nice as well. Has a large amount of floating sediment in it that remains still for the most part. The smell is very hoppy, not a lot of other aromas are coming through. The taste is very hoppy as well. The mouthfeel is fairly light, it's not oily at all and I find this beer to be quite enjoyable from start to finish.

Hazy amber body, tons of carbonation, topped by two fingers of snow white foam.

Big citrus nose. Tons of orange, with apricot support. Smack of pine. Clean, fresh, inviting.

Sweet juicy fruit hits the tongue fast. Nice bitter nip at the swallow, with deepens in the aftertaste. Great hoppy taste but not overly abrasively bitter.

Medium mouthfeel moves things along nicely.

Overall, a nice tasty effort from Flying Fish. I enjoyed it - despite the Rutgers references (Seton Hall, 1981). Flying Fish needs to make this at least an annual release.
