Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 10-13-2003

Each Halloween we release this special concoction to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. Deep blood-red in color, an intense aroma of pine and citrus from an abundance of American hops balances the sweetness and rich, bready flavors of this beer's caramel malts. The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.

This beer pairs excellently with toffee, caramel apples, or your favorite horror flick.

Pours into an impy pint glass a rich deep amber with a billowing one and a half finger beige head that has alot of craters spitting out foam,two broken rings of lace is left behind as it settles slowly into a frothy mass.Sharp grapefruit and English toffee play equal parts in the nose,just great.Leave it to the left coast to get the hoppy amber right again,sweet brown sugar with almost a butterscotch element to it,more caramel lends to the malty sweet side,then a big splash of grapefruit and pine jump out ya in the finish.The malty and hoppy sides of this beer intertwine almost perfectly and the feel is full but mellow at the same time.A damn fine hoppy American red here that has a great malt character as well.

Poured a beautiful red amber color in a pint glass with a 1 finger head.

Light grapefruit, citrus, and a hint of vanilla wafted from the head.

The mouth feel is moderate which I like in this style. Sometimes American Ambers/Red Ales can be too carbonated.

The taste is wonderful- this beer tastes like a DIPA, even though the color is different: intensely hoppy, grapefruit, some toffee, vanilla, and malty.

The finish is also similar to a DIPA- some hoppy bitterness.

Excellent beer, and easy to drink. I will buy this again-soon.
