  • Pour: Deep mahogany red with a thick, 1-finger, well-sustained white head that displays lots of spider web lacing.
  • Nose: The nose of the Rise Up Red is a very nice blend of herbal, floral, piney, and malty aromas. 
  • Taste: Very well-balanced, the Rise Up Red has a nice blend of barley malt, toffee/caramel, citrus, pine, and herbal flavors.  There are notes of baked bread, sweet toffee, grapefruit, pine, and black tea.
  • Mouthfeel: Full-bodied and medium to high carbonation the Rise Up Red is very smooth with a crisp and refreshing profile.  The finish is clean and smooth with a slight hoppy bite. 
Overall pairing: The Rise Up Red is a great brew to pair with "Beneath The Remains" for the simple fact that it goes down easy, but is full-flavored, complex, and has some bite... a great beer to pound whilst banging your head to the might and power that is Sepultura!!
