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.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 13, 2012

b3shine (5573) - Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Draft to taster at the Coxe Ave brewpub. Looks good; a very slightly hazy golden orange with eggshell head. Smells of hops and pale malt; a little sweeter than I’d prefer though. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 3, 2008
This APA pours a light gold color from the tap at the brewpub. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is slightly bready some malt and hops. A medium to light bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are slightly citrusy. More of a mild English Pale Ale. Nice finish, but nowhere bitter enough for an APA, let alone an IPA. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Suttree (5186) - 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.

decaturstevo (5145) - 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.

ChainGangGuy (4391) - 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.
