Nice tasting red with fruity notes and fine bitter finish. Balanced level of alcohol so that taste isn’t overpowered.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Let’s be clear; this is a red IPA. I know, it’s 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. There’s really no such thing as a ’red ale" style. Even so, this is the best Red Ale I’ve had.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Nice reddish pour with some head. Aroma is slightly underpowered but has notes of piney hops and malty undertones. Taste is a solid malt foundation with some sweet and toasty smooth character, which is punctuated by a piney, slightly bitter hop flavor. Finishes smooth and clean. Balanced. Really quite refreshing and the hop elements adds to the overall flavor profile and drinkability. Certainly one of the better "red ales."

Bottle; poured a dark orange/caramel color with a big to medium light khaki head. Aroma of earth, fruit and caramel; fairly impressive aroma. Flavor was vibrant; lot of caramel and fruit, giving way to a more subdued, but nice earthiness.

Marble is simply a great brewery! Red is there flagship offering on my opinion. Great Hop flavor. Easy to enjoy.

Bottle from Ketchepillar, pretty awesome how I forgot this was even in my fridge then found it while digging around. I was pretty excited because I loved that Imperial Red from these folks.
Pours a deep red color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is lots of fresh hops, lots of grapefruit, lots of floral stuff... not a lot else, but totally inviting and totally awesome smelling.
The flavor follows as expected, very hoppy and on the higher end of bitterness. The hops are juicy and citrusy, the beer has some fresh crisp malt character without a lot of sweetness.
Much like the Imperial Red is better at being a Double IPA than many products that claim to be Double IPAs, Marble Red is a better IPA than most IPAs out there. This is so fine.
