Poured into Bruery snifter. Appearance is a clear crimson with 1 finger of tan head, nice retention, and heavy lacing. Nose features heavy caramel malt character up front with toasted bread in the middle. Resinous hops cut through towards the end, but are surprisingly tame for the high IBU content. The taste features assertive hoppy bitterness, now I am getting the 126 IBUs which is not necessarily a good thing. The bitterness remains on the palate as a touch of the caramel malt sneaks through. The 9.5% is very apparent on the end. I was hoping for a beefed up Cane and Ebel, but this one doesn't have the same level of finesse. This is definitely a step in the right direction for Two Bros. Mouthfeel is moderate with moderate to high carbonation. Overall worth a try, but the 15.99 price tag is a bit steep for the sixer.

Bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Code on bottle reads "3132", assuming day 313 of 2012 (bottled 11/11?). Consumed & reviewed on 12/11/12.

This beer pours a nice deep amber color with 1/2 inch of cream-colored head. Nice aroma on this one: spicy hops, a bit of citrus fruit, and cereal-like malt presence. This offers a lot of balance on the palate: a bit of alcohol heat, along with significant hop presence (simcoe?), and an equally strong malt presence.

Good, but not great, offering from 2 Bros. It has echoes of HopSlam with the balance & relatively low heat, but not as complex. The mouthfeel could use a bit more bulk.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a transparent burnt orange, small off-white head which sticks around and leaves nice lacing along with great retention. The aromas are pretty nice. Lots of grapefruit, orange peel, grass, and pine resin. There's a subtle amount of caramel malts in the mix, but the hops seem to shine in the nose. The flavors are nice, but there's some heat going on, and it's slightly boozy, which is really the only downfall. Lots of pine needles and citrus. This beer is bitter as hell. There's some rye and black pepper in the mix, giving it a spiciness. There's a subtle sweetness. Very oily, slick, and resiny. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's on the lighter side of full-bodied. Carbonation is moderate and smooth; slightly syrupy. Despite the alcohol being noticeable, this is still an easy and fun drinking beer.

This is a nice Imperial Red Ale. My only beef is that it's slightly hot and boozy, but it's not overboard. This just missed being something great, but it's still really good and worth seeking out. I enjoyed my time with Revelry.

Beautiful amber color. Mostly transparent. Rich off-white head with exceptional retention leaves large, ring-shaped patches of lacing all over the glass.

Rich caramel aroma. Mild toasty character. Hint of roasted almonds.

Smooth malty flavor. Biscuits and caramel. Nutty notes. Assertive earthy, herbal hop bitterness. Good balance. Hop presence leaves a tangy aftertaste.

Full-bodied, well carbonated. Smooth mid-drink with a semi-dry finish.

Good stuff. Surprisingly balanced considering the 124 IBU stated on the bottle.

Somehow put off reviewing this beer until the last one in the fridge is staring me down.
Here goes... poured a 12 oz. into a tulip glass.

Deep saturated amber color with auburn crimson highlights. A dense head of foam that rises above the rim in a convex dome, sturdy and not wavering. As it settles, there's a copious amount of lace in the glass. Bright clarity, not much carbonation to see.

Earthy vegetal hop aroma, some sweet crystal malt and marmalade sweetness.

Floral bitter piney notes, light apricot sweetness, lingering earthy hop bitterness. Fairly dry with a noticeable abv. Not as smooth or flavorful as Cane & Ebel. Its sort of easy to get distracted from, a good beer but ultimately not all that compelling in the end.
