Roundhouse India Red Ale
Today I'm checking out Bell's Roundhouse India Red Ale. The can says, "This IRA features bright juicy, tropical fruit and citrus aromas balanced with a judicious amount of toasted and caramel specialty malts." Also, this beer is brewed with Michigan honey. The can shows the back corner of a boxing ring. 7.5% alcohol, PKGD 091416.
Beautiful red/garnet color. Citrus, orange and lots of tropical scents with a big whiff. Great flavors! Juicy tropical fruity peach and tangerine flavors with just a touch of sweet honey. Caramel sweetness also present.
Those initial sweet flavors are balanced by some excellent spicy hops, citrus, and a nice little sharp prickliness on the palate. Nice lingering fruity flavors left on the palate. Check it out!
