Hey guys, went out with some friends last night and came across this beer:

Hedonism Ale (Legacy Brewing, Reading, PA)
Wickedly tasty red ale packed with a full aroma from dry hopping and a massive hop flavor. Specially brewed with all European malts and West Coast whole flower hops. The result is a rich ruby red color; lacy collar and a feast of hop aroma and flavor.

Style: Northern California Inspired Red Ale
Alcohol: 7.10% ABV
IBU: 110
Hops: Washington Whole Flower
Malts: German, Belgian
Availability: Year round


I had never even heard of it before last night when I stopped in to North 3rd. in Northern Liberties (Philadelphia) and saw it on tap, so I figured I'd give it a shot. If you're a hophead, then this one is right up your alley (IBU of 110!). Crisp and clean, not too sweet, not too dry, good hop aroma/flavoring, and the bittering hops definitely make their presence known.

Just wondering if anyone out there has tried this brew before, and if so, what you thought of it.

Primary #1:

Bottled/Drinking: Nut Brown Ale (First Batch), Copperhead Amber Ale (Delicious!)
On The Horizon: Procrastination IPA, DunkelWeizen, Belgian Wit, Caramel Vanilla Creme Ale, Mocha Espresso Porter

I've had an ale called Hedonism, but can't remember the brewery. Been a few years.
