Bomber. Thanks to Justin. Solid nose of mixed citrus and pine, some toffee. Copper/brown color. Balanced sort of initial flavors, resiny hops, nice bit of tangy fruit before balance resumes, deep medium dark fruitiness. Medium body. Very flavorful and fairly balanced throughout.

ARH (777) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2014
On tap poured into a 5oz English tulip. The initial aroma is a roasted grain, kinda rye-like with a dry citrus peel and some toffee. The off-white head leaves a light retention as a ring around the edge of the glass and a light island of head in the middle. This sits atop a clear red-brown beer. An above average amount of layer-like lace is left down the glass. The taste is a nicely balanced medium malty sweetness and medium grainy bitterness. The medium body has lots of soft carbonation and goes down with a creamy texture. The finish is a bit of rye and a berry sweetness, and leaves behind a grainy aftertaste.

shigadeyo (3192) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2013
9/03/2013: Half Acre Ginger Twin India Red Ale... Aroma: Sugary caramel malts. Appearance: Deep amber color; lofty light beige head. Flavor: Malty with caramel overtones; good hops - earthy, herbal; moderate bitterness. Palate: Medium-bodied; chewy texture. Overall: Very drinkable and quite good; although I enjoy the malty characteristic of a PacNW Style Red IPA, this one seems to be a touch too malty and as a result the hops get a bit lost. However, itís still quite good. 22 fl. oz. bottle shared by dirhauge. Thanks Paul! Rating #70 for this beer.

22 ounce bottle from Binnys. Malty red ale with nice hop profile. Rich caramel. Itís been in my fridge for three weeks....but itís still tasty.
