COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We conceived this beer to entice the sinner and saint in each of us, following one simple rule: you can never have too much of a good thing. So we took mountains of Crystal, Wheat, and Munich malts and paired them with huge handfuls of Cascade and Tradition hops for an irresistibly wicked beer that’s at once temptingly sweet and scandalously bitter, with a full body and deep red color. Go on, treat yourself a little and ask for the happy ending.

ChainGangGuy (4422) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Appearance: Pours a hazy, reddish-copper body with a decent off-white head. Smell: A middling caramel maltiness to the aroma, but it has a decent aromatic bite of floral, piney hops. Taste: Caramel malt flavor with reserved sweetness upfront soon gives way to a lasting floral, piney hop character and a sensible level of bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: An upright IPA.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 19, 2007
On tap at APBC. A slightly hazed deep amber pour. An aroma of light hops a bit of sweet malt. The flavor follows suit with a good bitter. A slight sourness kept me from rating it a bit higher. A decent palate just a tad thin but carbonation was good. A decent offering as well.

Cam501 (58) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2007
On tap at APBC. Pours hazy amber with a medium thick head . Excellent balance of hoppy bitterness with the slight maltiness. Slightly grainy but with a lasting hoppy kick in the finish. This is one of my favorite brews and in my opinion the best brew Asheville Pizza has to offer..

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Attractive hazy orange color with thick foamy head that laced the glass. Delicious floral/citrusy hop aroma. Hop flavor is dominant with a soft malty caramel flavor in the backround. Bitter hop finish with a nice cereal grain aftertaste. Very good.

brentfeesh (1207) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2006
On tap at the brewery. Poured hazy brownish orange. Nice hoppy fresh grain aroma. Adequate body for the style. Crisp, grassy hops with a hint of grapefruit. Light nutty malt. Long lightly bitter grapefruit finish. An enjoyable beverage and with a name like “red light” (as in district) you can’t go wrong for #420.

NachlamSie (2809) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2006
draught. Pours a cloudy amber with a frothy white head. There’s grapefruit and a bit of pine in the nose. More grapefruit in the flavor, bit of twigs, some butter toffee, the hops are semi-biting. Not bad.

Suttree (5265) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2006 Red, as the name implies. But not particularly light, so I suppose that portion of the name is a bit of a misnomer. Also kinda cloudy, which isn’t even addressed in name. If you want, you could call it "Red Cloud IPA" and be much more accurate. Anyway, smells kind of peppery and citrusy, with a hint of cedar. Stoney, piney hops dominate the flavor, with just a hint of cereal maltiness as well as a touch of caramel. Very tasty brew.
