Named after an American and Alameda born treasure, Jimmy Doolittle. This red ale is hop forward and has elevated alcohol. Summit, Cascade and Centennial hops put on a show, but are not outdone by the big malt backbone.
More malty and less hops in these ales. Known for flavors and aromas of caramel and toffee and roasted grains. Typically Irish in nature but the American red ale styles are innovative with different hop characteristics.
