BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Rushing Duck Brewing Company
New York, United States | website

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Loaded with West Coast hops, it could really be called a “Red Double IPA”. Citrus and tropical fruit aromas are the first thing you’ll notice about Kroovy, but don’t overlook the slight caramel maltiness, or the body provided from adding 10% malted rye to the beer. Kroovy will satisfy even the biggest hophead!

1/2 growler filled at the Green Growler Grocery in Croton on Hudson , NY

Dark dark amber, moderate cap, leaving a tiny bubble film and nice looking fine sheeting.

Dark malt and waves of maple on the nose

Densly flavorful brew, seems most like a barley wine to me with a double IPA personality as well..mostly malty and densly flavorful to start, then some piney hop notes come forward. Nicely done, more quality brew from RDBC

On tap at The Lionheart in Albany, NY.

Pours a clear rusty amber color, with a half inch head, and only a small amount of lacing.

Smells like pine, caramel, butterscotch, and citrusy hops.

The taste is similar. This one is a really delicious hoppy red. There are tastes of rye bread, caramel, bitter pine resin, grapefruit, orange, pineapple, etc. This one is a little bit sweet, but mostly bitter and bready. Delicious.

This one has a medium body, and a great slightly creamy mouthfeel. This one is really, really drinkable and tasty.

Another great beer from RD, I'm getting a good intro to them lately.

Kroovy is a brownish-red color and is pretty clear. Pours a moderate sized dense creamy head with good retention and lacing. Aroma consists of resinous and citric hops, as well as caramel malts. Just a touch of floral aromatic hops as well.

Taste starts with resinous hops, then grapefruit, tangerine, and bread, with a floral, piney, caramel malt finish. Mouthfeel is a bit lighter than average for an Imperial Red with average carbonation and a crisp finish.
