A lively red IPA made with Pale, Munich and Carapils Malts plus a generous helping of Chinook, Sorachi Ace, Columbus, Cascade & Amarillo hops.
This beer dances around your tongue but then packs in a good punch. A beer with a robust bitterness that is broad and bracing, but held together firmly by a solid backbone of malt. Red in colour, with bright grapefruit citrus aromatics that leap out of the glass. Endlessly appetising. Fragrant, bright, zingy, citrusy, robust and strong.

Keg at The Rake, London. It pours a clean golden color with a small off-white head. Aroma is bitter and hoppy, with notes of grass, earth, leaves, floral. taste is quite dry and bitter, with more earth, dried leaves, hay and floral. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, not great

pours peachy golden with a billowy head that looks like meringue and was film by the end leaving decent lacing. aroma full of green hops, minerals and some metal. not much citrus or fruits but some floral action. Again, lots of mineral and even some earth in the taste. bitterness from the pith of a grapefruit but not much of the fruit. bit of veggie flavor as well. palate is a bit lively carbonation is active. Overall not bad but not what I look for in an IPA. Too aggressive all around, but refreshing.

SlackerMads (2779) - DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
Small fat bottle with no best before date in the designated best before place on the label. Pours clear yellow/orange with a large frothy off white head. Peculiar nose of burnt rubber. The flavour open things up a lot with notes of black pepper, dry flowers, grass, dried plants, straw, bread. Has nicely balanced bitterness and lively carbonation that makes easy to drink. Not much of an American IPA, though.

750ml bottle, best before Dec 2012, at tasting on 20 January 2013. Thanks to Theydon_Bois for sharing. Described as a Red IPA but didn’t seem that red to me. More like golden amber. Decent enough hops here - peppery and citric (grapefruit at the same time). A touch restrained but note this was a touch beyond its best before date so the hop character may have faded somewhat. Should probably try this again, but fresher. The balancing malts are quite fruity with a touch of (unwanted) toffee. Solid enough.

Clear medium amber yellow colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, citrus, tobacco. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, tobacco and wood bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20130120]

Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London. Thanks to Colin! Pours clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Has kind of a bready malt nose. Medium sweet flavor with dry bread, light dry caramel, some leafy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average, creamy carbonation. Dry, clean bready malt finish, further lightly dried caramel, a bit of dirt. Not bad.

330ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Lovely toffee aroma, fruity and interesting. Taste is a little papery, but it has a very nice rich toffee-ish roast. Again ruity. Finish has a gentle woody bitterness. Unlike most red ales, I actually like this - good one!
