3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft @ Ram. Served up way too cold in an 18oz tumbler. This big red IPA doesn’t really look all that red. It’s kind of a light copper with abundant tan head. The aroma is light but has a nice grapefruit hop punch with much lesser amounts of malt. The flavor has a tasty grapefruit hop bitterness with hints of a floral hop quality. Near midway a sweet pale to lightly roasted maltiness comes out. Not long after the maltiness succumbs to the somewhat bitter grapefruit hop finish. Nice IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Ram - Wheeling, IL. Poured a clear, lighter orangey-golden with a short cap of white head and some nice lacing. More of a focus on the caramel and grapefruit in the nose than the pine, grapefruit, and lemony hops beneath. Flavor was of sweet caramel with a more assertive well-placed grapefruit and pine bitterness.. candy-like bitter twist at the finish.. tasty. Medium body. Nice transition from sweet, smooth middle to a moderately bitter finish.. felt very good.

Had on Draft as Humperdinks Big Red IPA, in dallas .. . Saved this one for last, and it was the best of the lot .. . Pours a light gold tan.. medium foam .. . good dose of bitterness .. quite a light IPA, but still could do the job.. .. . I want to set the record straight. I thought the cop was a prostitute.

Draft to taster at Ram in Indy. Looks solid; a transparent burnt orange with eggshell head. Smells solid; nice juicy hops with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells, but maltier. Average on the palate. Solid, but it smells better than it tastes.
