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.

    Sampled this shortly after their regular Red Fish - Red Ale. Pretty much the same thing, just stronger and sweeter. Alcohol bite stands out somewhat. I prefer my imperial reds a little thinner and hoppier than this...although there is some decent hop to this one. Glad I got to try this, but not one that I'll remember really.

    similar to a IIPA, but with a denser, sweeter malt profile. caramel malts and citrusy floral hops in equal measure. a nice brew, with a little spice/bread at the end. one of the better beers i've had from them.

    Sampled on 6/10/2011. This American Strong Ale pours a medium amber brown color from a 750ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, fruity, sweet and hoppy. A medium bodied American Strong Ale. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and grapefruity. Nice carbonation. Good balance between the malts and hops. Nice smooth taste. Hides the alcohol well. Very nice sipping beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    Paired this one with chicken cacciatore. Nice pairing. A bold amber colored beer. A big frothy textured, white head rises robustly above. And hangs in there. It settles eventually into a thick soapy ringlet and splotches of film. The nose is a bold pine-citric aroma. The tastingmatches that with sweet breadiness. A medium bodied beer. Creamy on the tongue.
