This beer was good but it didn't have that finish that I expect from a red. It had good flavor though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I think this May be abad bottle musty aroma not enjoyable. Nice head hop then leather like flavor. Good mouthfeel. Overall I hope this was an off bottle.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy amber/ruby with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts, a little spice, and some floral and almost citrusy hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad but still a red ale

On draft at the brewpub in Santa fe it is a clear dark amber color with a slight head aroma of sweet citrus tastes of full bodied citrus nice on the palate.

Nice tasting red with fruity notes and fine bitter finish. Balanced level of alcohol so that taste isnít overpowered.

Brouwerij (929) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear, deep, red amber with fine, light khaki head. Decent retention, settles to thin cap, with some thin lacing. Aroma is hoppy, mild resin, with a nice, sweet malt background. Flavor is hoppy up front, fairly resinous and oily, fading into a subtle malt finish, slight nutty and toffee. Quite hop forward, even for the style, probably why it has rated so highly, damn hopheads! Moderate to strong carbonation, with a medium body, and crisp texture. A tasty, hoppy amber ale, quite good.

Letís be clear; this is a red IPA. I know, itís not pale so, IRA? Really nice clean reddish-brown color. Lots of citrus and pine in the nose with only a little onion. Much better carmel malt characteristics than most. Wonderful hop flowery flavors and bitter finish with more pine resin. Thereís really no such thing as a íred ale" style. Even so, this is the best Red Ale Iíve had.
