22oz bottle. Hazy amber orange with a small off white head. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, caramel and floral hops. Flavor is caramel malt, bitter hops and light alcohol. Medium body with a long bitter finish. Decent, fresh and hoppy with some caramel sweetness.

The color and clarity of the beer is a bit off putting. It isn’t red, its a cloudy brownish orange. Aroma is nothing like an IPA, mostly malt. Taste is mildly hoppy with a clean finish.

There’s a deceptively sweet note of molasses up front, but the potent, piney hops rapidly sand that off your tongue. A nice tinge of barley asserts itself between the trees for the rest of the draft.

Schwarzbart (71) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Color is a cloudy amber. Has a good bit of draping lace. Nose has a caramel malt foundation and tropical juice sweetness of papaya, mango and pineapple. Palate is medium bodied, creamy and only light bitterness in the finish. Tastes of papaya juice, mango, earthy hops, caramel malts and finishes with a good dose of grass. A nice red ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light gold with a white head. Fresh citrus hops, bitter and caramel. Great palate, chewy hops, sticky, bitter, fruity and a clean finish.

Transfer from BA review on 3-29-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed copper-amber color with a one finger of just off white head. The head fades over a time span of about 2 min. leaving some bit of foamy lace behind on the sides of the glass. Smell – A blend of a caramel sweetness and a good showing of a more bready nature are largest in the smell. A rather strong hop aroma is there as well with aromas of a grapefruit and slightly herbal nature being the strongest and just a hint of an earthy smell lurking in the background. Taste – The taste begins somewhat like what may have been expected from the nose, but slightly skewed. It begins with a rather strong caramel sweetness with a smooth bready taste more so then the nose would have suggested. The hop flavors are on the other side of the skew however with them being lighter than the nose would have suggested. The hop flavors start out almost entirely of a grapefruit taste with that later being joined by some lighter grassy and pine flavors coming to the tongue. A little bit of a tangerine sweetness as well as a tiny bit of yeast taste joins the flavor at the end, leaving one with a rather sweet and moderately, but lighter than the nose would suggest, hop flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. For the sweet and bready flavors of the brew the thicker and creamier body are nice for creating a chewier feel overall, all while still managing to uphold the hop flavors of the brew and making them shine a bit as well. Overall – A rather sweeter and somewhat lighter hopped IPA with a rather nice chewy feel. This was a rather enjoyable drinker with lots of malt bill but yet balanced some by the moderate hop.

"this second holiday offering was also full flavored, robust, and a little malty, but had a full hop compliment and was more assertive, floral, and bitter than Bi-Frost. Sorachi Ace hops lending a cool, unique character to the beer."

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grainy with hints of tropical fruits, pine and grapefruit. Taste is a citrus and pine hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and malty sweetness. Medium body with good carbonation. A nicely done IPA that is hoppy but refreshing.
