3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
