Red Alien to the secondary

I racked my Red Alien Hopduction to the secondary today. It has a reddish dark amber color with a good hop aroma. I used Nugget hops for bittering, and late additions of Willamette for taste and aroma.
My Amarillo APA is now on tap and is just about up to carbonation. My taste tests have revealed a nice, easy drinking, hopped up ale with a very white head.

Alien Red Hop Abduction

On April 22nd I brewed a Red Hopped up ale. Over 7 oz. of hops went into this brew and it looks like it's goinh to be a fun one. The Amarillo APA is now in the kegs and carbing up waiting for a tap to open up. The Belgian Strong Dark is still flowing from the taps, but is going slower due to the higher alcohol content.  Believe me, after a couple of these your inner Belgian is aroused!
