Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Stop seven on our multi-year trip to explore the state of New Jersey through its beer and culture, is Exit 9, best known as the Rutgers University exit. The state’s university, Rutgers, began in 1771 with classes held at a local tavern though by 1810, students were banned from frequenting “beer and oyster houses.” Alumni include Nobel Laureates, astronauts, brewery founders, authors, actors and perhaps most notably, the cartoon character Mr. Magoo.

To celebrate Exit 9, we brewed a richly flavored red beer crafted with a variety of domestic and imported malts and a classic American yeast strain. Assertively hopped with Amarillo, Centennial, Chinook and Citra, the bouquet has complex notes of citrus and tropical fruits, with an appropriate bitterness in the finish. Serve it with spicy foods (try gumbo or curry), a rich blue or sharp cheddar cheese or enjoy it by itself.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed this 750ml bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a very cloudy orange hue with a thin, white, 1-finger head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace leaving a nice trail down the slide of the glass.

S: Malty hoppy aroma with hints of caramel.

T: Equal mix of malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Nice caramel background with hints of bread/biscuits and brown sugar.

M: Very strong and boozy. Thick body and medium carbonation.

O: Interesting brew – not my favorite EXIT but definitely worthy of a try.
