2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in NYC. Pours clear, deep copper with a moderate, foamy white head. Hmm, the beer seems to have some odd off-flavors. Thereís some bread, musty wood, dried caramel, herbal pine. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Dry, earthy, piney and herbal bitterness on the finish, low sweetness, more musty wood, basement. Pretty poor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2/15/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Clear red pour with a small tan head that fades and laces a ton. Light dank hops with a touch of pine. Nice hoppy flavor with lots of pine, touches of citrus and dankness, and some caramel in there. Nice and easy drinking.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottl.e Rusty red, still, and shiny. The thin head is nonetheless quite adhesive. This has a metallic, tangy aroma. Indeed, it drinks with a copper-tinged bitterness a bit, but otherwise is unfortunately not that much of a standout from your every-day macro lagers. (#5033, 5/25/2013)

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Nice deep dark copper pour, thin, but long lasting off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is somewhat of a mess with some baby diapers, a hint of spruce, some ripening vegetables. The flavor redeems the aroma with some nice bittersweet citrus notes, some caramel sweetness, a bit of nuttiness. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
When I hear "Red IPA", I usually think "oh, you mean an Amber Ale?". That;s kind of the case here. That being said, I did enjoy this. Caramel malts, some grapefruit, nicely thin bodied. I enjoyed it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Samís, Durham. Never a huge fan of Kashmir, and I regret to say that DB wasnít much either. Nice look, but it does come across as a little thin and clear for the style. Bright fruity hops in the nose but something a bit cidery in the aroma. Thankfully, not getting the onion thang that others have reported. Thin mouthfeel, and that puts the spotlight on a pretty sub-standard personality. Apple cider, day old tea, and biscuit malts. Oof.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours a clear brick red with some creamy, lacing white head. Nose is nice and approachable, orange, grapefruit, lemon candy, malt, cracker, some hand soap. Flavor is solid too, bitter, soapy, pine, grapefruit pulp, orange zest, a little vegetal, some malt, cracker. Medium bodied, lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Red color, white ring. Aroma is if fruity esters, simple sugary malt, and some resin. Sharp hop bite, toasted malts with a touch of caramel malt characters. Very simple. Iíve had American Pale Ales more complex than this IPA. A bold beer for a session. (3746)
