3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours two and half fingers of head on a clear copper colored body.
The aroma is pine at first, then lots of tropical fruit: mango and pineapple. Really nice.
The taste is moderate pine and grapefruit bitterness, with a big malt bill to balance it out nicely.
The texture is crisp with soft and fizzy edges.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy orangish copper with a small white ring. Great aroma of tropical fruits, papaya, mango, passionfruit, can and light burnt sugar. Taste is tropical fruits, mango, passionfruit, papaya, caramel with a burnt character on the finish that lasts into the finish... This would be a great red ipa if you could get rid of that light harshness.

skunky, resin aroma, wood smoke & caramel, clashy mix. clash more of an issue with the flavor--resin, smoke, grapefruit rind, caramel. hoppier than expected, milder in the malt aspects.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light to medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (resin, grapefruit).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Red ale? Huh? This is pretty pale amber to be slinginí out that phrase, IMHO. Very quiet nose doesnít show much of anything, and itís equally dull in the mouth. Ninkasi continues to struggle.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap taster at John B Pub in Coquitlam. The head is white and the colour is very pale for a red IPA. Couldíve mistaken it for a Coors Lite by the colour! LOL.
Other than that pithy observation, it seems to be a sprightly and refreshing IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
IPA with a nice up front malt presence. Malt leads the aroma as well. Nice amber pour with persistent creamy off white head. Caramel malts with a nice piny, resinous hop finish.

Love the Romero inspired name/label. Pours a light amber with golden hues peeking through. The head is spotty off white with tons of lacing. The aroma is laced with glorious tropical fruits, citrus, light pine resins and caramel malts. Biscuits, toffee, caramel malts up front. The hops arenít forceful but have a heavy citrus presence. Tropical pineapple and mango notes. Light pine resin, heavy bitterness. A good well balanced brew overall.

Pours coppery amber, foamy white head, some lacing. Aroma is hints of mango, grapefruit, spruce. Tastes of citrus, resinous notes. Full bodied, soft carbonation, short finish, but not abrupt. Very nice balance between bitterness and flavor of hops.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Clear red amber with a medium sized soapy white head. Mostly Fruity, malty aroma. Flavor follows. Fruity, bready. Some alcohol present Bigger medium to lighter full body. Straddles the fence too much and just wasnít very interesting to me, but a solid beer.
