First smell already portrays the caramel and the hoppy goodness coming up. Then the first taste: a little caramel, followed by a long floral aftertaste, it has quite some carbonization. Very delicious red ipa! Recommended!

Nice staying head. Aroma is nice but dies quickly. Sweet and bitter but nothing too overwhelming. Also a bit anonymous. Still quality though.

22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to a deep cloudy read/brown color with a very thick off white head. The aroma has resin, caramel, pine & some citrus. The taste has resin, pine upfront & a pretty balance but bitter finish. Overall a good red but not my favorite.

with any luck, this brew will remind me of founder’s red’s rye which is one of my favorites - that’s how it seems to be advertised, anyway. it pours out more of a gold than red, but there is a powerful hops and caramel malt nose. dusty citrus hops, a nice lively aroma. flavor is very sticky and bold - tons of hops resin and malt backbone. this is indeed a brew to rival red’s rye, one that i have enjoyed very much. glad to see the availability of green flash here in michigan paying off!

pours hazy dark golden reddish with a creamy light beige head, good retention and nice lacing. leafy citrusy and spicy amarillo, dry toasted caramel, rye-like graininess, lots of pepper, green and black tea, stone fruits, oranges, watermelons - some lager fruitiness, pinch of minerals/salt and brown sugar, also maple. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, short to medium long herbal-citrusy-piney finish. balanced and tasty. with this one and red wheelbarrow, i reconciled myself with hoppy ambers..
