4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Picked up a bottle of Sockeye Red IPA at the specialty beer store nearby. First thing I noticed was a really nice head--got nice and chunky and an inch above the rim of the glass. The aroma was a nice standard hoppy IPA, but quite strong. Same for flavor--a little hoppier than an average IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Approximately 15 oz. from a 22 oz. bottle, consumed on 8-28-16. Pours a surprisingly dark brown (medium brown overall) with a moderate amount of cream-colored head. Nice shade of liquid and head. Hazy liquid. Good lacing. Looks good. Toasty, floral maltiness produces a dried fruit flavor. Nice, citric hoppiness in smell. Some pine and even saltiness from the hops. Like a tangy fruit salad in aroma (blueberry, orange, melon). Really nice, hoppy-dry taste with a good, toasted to caramel malt backbone. Grapefruit, lemon, peach, and tropical fruit. Lemon / vanilla cream. Freshly baked bread crust. Nice, long, full, dry aftertaste. Medium body. Nice smoothness but not the most memorable palate. My kind of beer! Well balanced and drinkable with a lot of aroma and flavor. Strong across the board. A real winner.

Caramel-bronze body with a luxurious, frothy and poofy caramel cream crown. Pine to pineapple hop nose, with a soapy leafyness. Medium-bodied, good balance between caramel malt and hops. Easy bitterness and restrained hop flavor, with winces of leafyness. A solid ESB/Red

@ best western americania 16-3-6: rätt söt och maltig med små humletoner och socker. Lite för söt.

Can from Andy. Dark amber with a tan head. That is an odd one - sorta old orange and citrus aroma, somewhat musty, caramel malt, some spice, mild carbonation and moderate body, slightly astringent, fairly grainy with some hay, bitter and fairly malty on the finish.
