A: Translucet ruby red with a bit of brown and a foamy light tan head.
S: Sweet nectary mango and tangerine, some banana, some tropical fruit in the nose.
T: Tropical fruit, mango, pine, bitter citrus peel, but very light on the bitterness. Delicious!
M: Medium bodied and smooth.
O: This really isn't an American Strong Ale. It's an Amber Ale/Red IPA/IPA. It's deliciously hoppy. I love the tropical fruit.

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.

A-Pours hazy and dark amber. Decent head. My light source was too dim to really investigate much more beyond that.
S-Smell is interesting. Pungent, tangy grapefruit rinds and candied oranges. Spicy hops too. Hop-stressed. Malt is of toasty and rather full. A big Amber Ale in my opinion.
T-More of the same. Huge kick of squished grapefruit and pine. Definitely very tangy. Spicy and a bit medicinal. Malt is sweet and doughy.
M-Medium bodied. Quite dry and noticeably bitter. Not too easy too drink but the flavor is still cool.
O/D-Much better than my first offering from Third Street Aleworks. Pretty decent beer. Perhaps a bit too rough during some sips but it was worth trying a pint.
Serving type: on-tap
