Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin layer of light tan head. Aroma of floral hops and pine. Taste of malt and hops. Like a slight hoppy unsweet tea.

Good looking beer in the glass, creamy burnt amber color with off white thick head. Taste is hard to describe. Hints of citrus, caramel, pine, and malts. Starts off bitter on sip but finishes smooth. I will get this one again

Lovely beer, a sweet caramel maltiness pervades with slick citrusy hops in the finish. Easy to drink, flavorful as hell.

Malts, fruits, caramel and resin in the aroma. Amber with a off white head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Bitter and dry finish. Overall a nice hoppy ale with a rich flavour.

Bottle (12 fl. oz.). Murky reddish amber colour. Half-inch off-white head, retains well, leaves an uneven film and a band of lacing. Aroma of fruity hops, resin, caramel, dust. Medium body, soft carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel. Taste is dusty-bitter with a nice fruity-resinous body, well-balanced. Dry finish.

Great Red IPA, definitely interested in cloning this one. Itís a great balance of red crystal malt flavor with hop flavor, firm, but not excessive bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy, dark amber to red body with a decent-sized, off-white head that laces the glass well. Strong, pleasant and quite unusual aroma. Thereís lots of malt here, but itís very gently roasted and itís not giving rise to anything darker than sweet caramel. Itís even more hoppy, with lots of seriously overripe tropical fruits, especially pineapple. There are also notes of grapefruit, overripe strawberries and hints of orange. Really, really interesting stuff! The flavour is also this amazing malt/hop mix, with caramel, burnt sugar, truckloads of overripe tropical fruits, grapefruit, citrus and pine, with orange in the back. Dangerously addictive and more-ish, I canít wait to have the next sip! Medium body, fairly dry texture and moderate carbonation. The most interesting beer this side of BIPA!
