3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Pours a cloudy copper, minimal head. Aroma is ripe citrus. Smooth and soft on the palate. Definite hop finish. Chewy and bready, a lot of body. Has some odd notes for an IPA, but overall, I like it the variations and the body. (updated rating when I could see it in context of my other IPA ratings - strictly speaking, as an IPA it should rate lower, because it’s off-type; but, it gets this rating because it’s pretty drinkable).

BOTTLE. Pours a slightly hazy gold with fluffy white head, solid lacing. Nose is a sweet biscuit & caramel malt. Biscuit, caramel malts are upfront leading to a slight hoppy back end with a good resin lingering after the mouthful. Sourced Cape Cellars

Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a creamy white head. Aroma of resiny hop (pine & citrus), fruity with some caramel malt. Tastes of citrus hops backed by sweet malt, pepper and a decent bitter finish. Medium body.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. One the original Red IPAs for sure. Unfiltered orange-red body. Thin, foamy, off-white head. Kind of old school thick, ringwood feeling tastes. Thick caramel, amber malts The hops attempt to balance it out, with some classic NW piny, resinous feels. Not really that good for 2015.

Deffo a bit diffo from the 'regular' IPA's. Not AS hoppy on the nose and nicely balanced given the 7% ABV. I think I'm going to decide to like this one. Yeah Mon...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A surprisingly sweet aroma proves that this is indeed a little different from your average west coast IPA. The hop-led assault on tasting is great because of the sheer number of hops used. A really nice IPA.

Reddish amber in tulip glass (in the dimly-lit Botella Republic in Berkeley). Probably not as red as it looks under the filament bulbs. Floral sweetness on the nose. Taste has a malty backbone, reminds me of a red ale or an amber. It’s okay, but not great.

Very strong hop-aroma, dark brown color, thin composition with a bitter hop finish. More on the bitter side of IPAs and it gets more bitter with each sip. very bitter, thin feel, soft carbonation, clear,

Good looking easily drinkable beer but just not enough aroma or flavour from the hops for me.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This pours a hazy, golden amber color with a slight beige head. The aroma is bitter and slightly malty. The taste is bitter yet has a decent amount of malts and floral tones. A decent brew the delivers with bitterness but still is not what you expect from an IPA. Finishes with a very dry after taste.
