COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An IRA bursting with notes of mango, papaya and pineapple, this beer finishes juicy with a subtle malty backbone. It doesnít take brains to know hoppy, tropical IRAs are a great way to welcome warmer months ahead!

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pineapple, mango, and papaya in a red ipa..whoa, thatís creative! Aroma is slightly fruity, but I wouldnít be able to pull out those aromas. Clear red/amber color. Sips nice and lively with nice hop presence. Body is medium to full and the middle and finish bring the malt to compliment the sweetness and hops. Slight watery body in the finish is my only complaint. Dry and sweet balance in the finish as well. Nice double ipa.

Stew41 (1754) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2014
On tap at Torst. The second high quality red Iíve had from these guys in as many days. Full and ripe but not cloying, but probably feels like itís playing above its 7%. Hop profile is essentially IPA (maybe even a light DIPA) but the warm from the malts is a nice offset. Oily and hard herbal finish.

Pretty good red ale. Has the peculiar rye malt flavor. Iíd say it has a bit more of the sugar of tropical fruit than the flavor, but I get a bit of banana and mango. Nice balancing bitterness.

liquidhedonism (184) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2014
22 oz bottle from Albertsonís in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma is citrusy and resinous, with hints of barnyard, perfume, and Budweiser lager yeast. Mouthfeel is crisp, with a short, bitter finish. Taste is sweet and bitter, but the ingredients donít seem to mesh well, leaving the beer tasting unbalanced.

Barreras (1049) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Pours a copper color with an orange hue. Aroma is fruity, distinct mango, pineapple smell. Taste is tropical, with a cool papaya flavor mixed with a malt bitterness. A bit dry, with a crisp finish, overall another good beer from a good brewery.

mikedR (1346) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Nice! Either an IPA with a red malt backbone, or a red ale with IPA-like hoppy overtones. Either way, Iím enjoying this. I get more red malts at first, but later sips are more hops.
