BEER INFO

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The big brother of our Tyranny Red Ale, this heavily dry-hopped ale is a delicious creation. Tyrant is full of malt rich flavors backed up with deep pine, herb and grapefruit peel aromas, all around a hop heads dream. This is a big, bad beer that drinks a little too easy for the 8.5% abv.

Appearance: Arrives with a copper color capped by an inch of khaki foam; nice lacing action

Smell: Caramel malt balanced by grapefruit and a hint of pine

Taste: Caramel flavors put a stake in the ground but the hops quickly arrive, bringing grapefruit and pine; a bit of cinnamon spice kicks in after the swallow to add complexity

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: The terrific balance between the malt and the hops really makes this one stand out; great job on a style that many brewers flub

Pours into an impy nonic a chill hazed deep burnt orange/lighter amber shade with a frothy and sticky off white head atop.A good shot of pine resin in the nose along with caramel malts,a great mix of both components.The left coast big big hops are the big player in the flavor profile that melds into caramel and hard toffee but the hops are the showcase.This is what Ia'm lookin for as far as an old school left coast-style hoppy red,I like this alot more than the "standard" Tyranny.

Poured into oversized snifter. Deep ruby red and a large sudsy head. Smells very herbal, piny, and a touch of sweet burnt sugar. First taste is caramel sweetness followed by massive palate wrecking herbal, pine, grassy hops. The bitterness is hardcore, so be warned. After a few sips it evens out and you get a bit more malty sweetness. It's aggressive in the palate and the malts really stick. I just had a celebration ale a few days ago and this reminds me of a super charged version. Big massive "C" hops and a large malt payload. It's good but I prefer a more tropical, fruity IPA. Still easily worth the price.
