COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The “IRA”, as it’s known around here, marries a ruby red color and rich body with the hop flavors of an IPA. Our unique ale yeast strain adds a delicious layer of complexity. One of the first beers we made, and an enduring favorite. Brewed with Gambrinus Organic Pilsner malt, imported crystal malt, Simcoe and Brewers’ Gold hops. 6.5% ABV, 60 BU

Very similar to Ninkasi's Believer Double Red (although a little less malty) this beer features some nice toasty malt with a hop profile similar to an ipa. A great hybrid style that keeps things interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had it on tap on brewers special, it is decently hoppy. Hits you in the face right away and has a nice lingering and aftertaste. The color is ruby red and the smell is sexy

Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Clear dark orange to amber color, medium sized off-white to beige head. Aroma is again -as this brewery has disappointed me several times now- quite faint. Taste lightly malts, hops, a light touch of resin, decently bitter. Decent body and carbonation.
