A complex, hop-forward beer brewed with Chinook, Simcoe, Apollo, and El Dorado hops. This strong ale has a sweet chocolate and caramel maltiness balanced by a solid bitterness and pine and floral aromas from an aggressive dry-hop.
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.
