Description: Clear with a ruby, amber, red color. Little to no head when poured into a snifter. Smell is dank, hoppy and delicious. Mango and pine come through to create a big, bold, enticing aroma. Taste is just like the smell: dank and hoppy with a nice bitter finish. The mouthfeel is a little heavier than an IPA with a dry, clean aftertaste.

Suggested food pairing: Fried fish

If you like this beer then you should also try: Redankulous

Overall: 4.5 (This beer is very good and I would definitely have it again) Yeah...so this is good. Big, bold flavors and aromas throughout. Tastes more like a DIPA than a normal red/amber ale (which I generally find pretty blah). Once again, Fat Head's shows they know what to do with hops. This is one not to pass up.

Real big and boozy for an amber, this beer is warm and vicious. Nice dark amber color with decent head on top. Caramel malt backbone fades into some bready and biscuity notes alongside a resinous punch of pine and citrus. Still quite hoppy, but in a world dominated by IPAs and double IPAs, its a pleasant change of pace.

Has a pleasant bitterness to it and a noticeable grapefruit overtones. Has a boozy quality to it as well. This is definitely a one-and-done beer. Far too big to be a session ale.

Pours a nice amber brown color, aroma is of malt and bread, taste is great for the style, I am not getting alot of hops, but the malt is there, it is like a hop devil but lacking the hoppiness I enjoy.
