COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

The best Red ale I have had so far. Beautiful red appearance and nice creamy biege head. Flavor was malty and creamy smooth with some ameican hops and nice smooth american or irish yeast flavors. Reminds me of my own homebrewed red ale. Nice full aroma and mouthfeel and very smooth and creamy. Outstanding.

Nah, very hoppy and not enough malt for my liking. The head was nice, though.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2003 No not again. This beer is contact brewed by Shipyard and therefore has the classic ringwood yeast flavors. Blah, Blah, Blah.

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.

Nice amber hue with a jast mowed the front yard hop aroma. Nice malty body with a balancing hop finish Nice New England Amber Ale.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2002
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.

A wonderful red. I would have to say that it is the closest thing to Full Sail Amber available in the northeast.
