Hungover (59) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2016
True in red color with 2 fingers head. Nice big round red ale with slight hoppy finish. The finish is actually quite boozy but it is really nice. Great beer.

zizzybalubba (1767) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2016
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Norfolk, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy, but short, off-white head. Aroma of damp pale malt, wet grass, and light citrus. Taste is good with an almost rye-like sweetness, some citrus, tropical fruit, and wet grass. The hop bitterness is muted by the sturdy malt backbone. This is a good India-Style Red Ale.

PorterPounder (7054) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Stuart, Fl - Total Wine & More - 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a thick off-white bubbly head. Aroma has some spruce tip accents, a hint of juicy fruit gum. Succulent flavor, light, tart citrus bite, some caramel accents, a bit of toffee, some cake mix yeastiness in the back end. Thick, rich mouthfeel.

sloshgator (676) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Ninkasi Dawn of the Red India Red Ale is a good standard red ale. Pour is chestnut brown with a frothy head. Aroma is that of fresh hops with a bit of pine. Taste is fruity with just enough piney hop bite. Dawn of the Red is good enough to reincarnate and it goes well with food.

BuckeyeBoy (5495) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 28, 2016
12oz bottle pours out a crisp copper color topped with a small head. Nose is nice big hops a nice little sweetness malt and some spice. Taste is more of the well balanced hop malt and a light spice.

BlackHaddock (5847) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
22oz bottle shared with my son on 22nd May 2016. Red hue to the copper/amber body, some sediment in the second glass, the head an off-white affair that tried to hang around. Aroma of malts and tropical fruit esters, taste follows the same lines. Decent enough, but lacked something: not sure what.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4237) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2016
This red ale just looks like a typical copper colored IPA but has a great peppery pine hop bouquet with a generous dose of caramel malt sweetness. Fairly full bodied with a round carbonation. The taste is bitter earthy pine sap then malt sweetness. A clean tasting hoppy "red" ale. Nice, I love the label though as I'm a big zombie movie fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

R4N5H (687) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
UPDATED: APR 10, 2016 12oz bottle poured into a straight glass. San Francisco on 12-Mar-2016. Hazy reddish amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet malt and medical alcohol. Medium body and carbonation. Flavour of caramel, malt and a lingering dry bitterness. Nice leaving down the glass. A hoppy amber ale with a dry bitter finish.
