Our flagship, this Irish-Style Red Ale proudly won a gold medal at the 2000 World Beer Cup. A combination of 5 different malts and 3 hop varietals, carefully blended, results in a perfect balance. Full-flavored and medium-bodied, the Riptide Red provides surprising complexity for such an easy-drinking brew.

Had on tap: The beer arrived with a dark reddish amber color with a small off white head which left some nice lace. It had a nice aroma of malt and hops. The flavor was of malt, hops, caramel and some spices. Slightly tangy, yet slightly bitter as well, finish. A very enjoyable beer.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 20, 2002
Bottled. Dark brownish-red body, luscious creamy lasting head. Nose is great, strongly hoppy and grapefruity but with some maltiness to keep from overwhelming you. Decent flavor, with hints of chocolate and citrus, but not that strong or distinctive. Slightly thinnish on the back end, with ok hop presence to finish. Started out so well... but still a good effort.

Noticable amount of alcohol in the aroma. Good complex flavours - nice and malty with good balancing bitterness. Interestingly dark tasting for an amber.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2002
I think this one is a very nice example of an American Amber. It’s a dark, malty full flavored brew, with a wonderful dry hopped finish. Very nice beer.

turtlehead (111) - Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 5, 2002
A wonderful red. I would have to say that it is the closest thing to Full Sail Amber available in the northeast.

This was unlike red ales I’d had in Europe, this one was hoppier. Definately dry-hopped, but it tasted nice. I would try it again.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2000
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2004 The beer gushes from the 12-ounce brown bottle a slightly beclouded copper color with the head portly in size and frothy in texture, the color a light tan with the resultant lace a fine covering upon the glass. Nose is dominated by the sweet malt, crisp and clean to the senses, start is slightly sweet, a decent malt profile with the top light to medium in feel. Finish is pertinently acidic with the hops mild and pleasant in their spiciness, the aftertaste quite dry and long lasting a drinkable beer.
