A very tasty red ale (don't know if I'd call it a "strong ale' but that's just semantic quibbling. Whatever).

Pours a deep brownish red with a sticky tan head. The aroma is sweet and thick and prune-like, with bread and a little spice. The flavor is almost chocolatey, with an intense berry fruit and a rich caramel backbone. Behind it is a firm hop character and bitterness. The mouthfeel is unctuous and thick. (413 characters)

Poured into a fat wine glass.

Dark, dark amber body with a thin almond-white head. Looks like it's going to be serious.

Quite a bit of malt on the nose for an IPA. Sweet caramel really dominates the hops, though there is some pine in the mix.

As advertised, pretty much right between a red ale and an IPA. Roasted sweetness attacks and coats your palate, eventually giving way to a bitter hop aftertaste.

Defintely full bodied, but the booze is nicely hidden for something over 7% abv. Taste sticks around for a while.

Interesting enough. Glad I tried it, but won't make it a point to have it again. (608 characters)

A - Red and dark copper with no head or lacing.

S - Intense grapefruit, and citrus hops this stuff smacks you in the face. In the background is carmel malt

T - the most intense grapefruit presence ever witnessed! It's like chewing on a grapefruit rind. WOW. The carmel malt background is there and takes this beer to the next level.

M - thick and chewy

D - I wish I didn't get hoppy beer hangovers but I do. Otherwise this beer would be an all day event for me. (473 characters)

Thanks to Daysinthewake for this one

App- This pours a murky looking deep orange with browns and ambers. Really cloudy with a good 1-1/2 finger head that fell to an amazing cling. 

Smell-  Its a weird smelling beer. Like a fat tire malty sweet intermixed with some deep grapefruit and bitter hops. 

Taste-  Again this is a interesting mix of  styles. Really has a deep malty flavor and a touch sweet like an amber but has a good backing citrusy grapefruity bitter note. A bit too malty but still good. 

Mouth-  Soft medium bodied with a low/medium carbonation. A bit of a spicy bitter creamy flavor residual flavor.

Drink-  A nice little beer really. I get the blending of styles and this psuedo IPA is pretty tasty but just a tad too sweet with a small bitter level.  (823 characters)
