COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the bold spirit of Alaska, Sockeye Red IPA is a finely crafted Pacific Northwest-style India Pale Ale with a real bite. Ample pale two-row malt creates a fresh, firm body while specialty malts impart a spawning red hue. The predominant character of this fiesty catch comes from outlandish portions of Centennial, Cascade and Simcoe hops, giving this beer tremendous citrus and floral aroma and flavor.

Determined and bitter but amazingly balanced, Sockeye Red IPA is gnarly enough to take you hook, line and sinker. Forget about a bigger rig; grab a bigger glass.

Strykzone (4493) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2013
12 ounce can from Hayduke. Darker than most with some haze. A fluffy off white head that leaves sticky lacing. A big aroma of citrus and floral hops with malts to match. The first sip brings some big bitterness. This has the makings of a double but without the ABV. A big citrus bite to this one. It is not for the faint of heart and is a hop lover’s dream. There are some herbal notes, too. This settled a bit by the finish but it resembled an IIPA to the end. Huge flavor and lower ABV is a winning combination for me.

FriarHop (121) - Long Beach, New York, USA - APR 18, 2013
UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 Tasty, standard red ale, nothing fancy. Malty and hoppy. Lacking in the ABV department but overall, drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhillyCraft (2854) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle via trade, got it as an extra along with some TREATS. Pour a deep amber shade with very small head and not much lacing. Aromas are nice: grass, caramel, pine, and citrus fruit. Taste is most of the same with average mouthfeel. Good amount of Simcoe in this guy. Finishes bitter and a little bit dry. Glad I got to try this one.

22 oz. Bomber: Pours a dark amber with ruby tones and a frothy off-white head that is mostly lasting. Has a floral and citrus aroma with hints of pine and caramel in the malts. Balanced flavor starts with sweet grapefruit and finishes with a piney bitter bite.
