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. There’s 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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pour at Barley’s. Pours a reddish amber with an off-white head. Notes of amber malts, grass, florals, and citrus fruits. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, mildly bitter mouthfeel. Disappointing IPA.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at Barley’s during RBWG. Clear orange red color. Thin khaki head. Good thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Bigger moderate bitter taste, kind of zesty, minimal sweet. Good grapefruit citrus hop, caramel malt, some biscuity malt. Very nice resiny, citrusy IPA. A step up from Kashmir, I think.
