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.

Draft. Pours amber orange with a white head. Citric hoppy aroma with a hint of pine and sweet malts. The flavor has floral hops, a hint of marijuana, and sweet malts. Not bad.

b3shine (8195) - 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.

Suttree (6106) - 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 (5850) - 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.

ben4321 (5784) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Location: Draft at Asheville Pizza and Brewing Company (Merrimon Ave), 1/3/15

Aroma: This beer has a light malty aroma, with some light hops
Appearance: It pours a cloudy darker orange color, with a beige head, and mid-heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor is along the same lines, with a light sweet and light bitterness balance
Palate: The body is decent, with a solid mouthfeel, and a clean finish
Overall Impression: Okay overall, but it ends up being on the poorer side within the style. Not bad, not good, just decent. Reminds me of Amsterdam not at all (a.k.a. - I don’t understand the name.)
