Flagship Series. An IRA bursting with tropical notes, this beer finishes juicy with a subtle malty backbone. After one taste, it’ll leave you wanting more. It doesn’t take brains to know this IRA is a delicious choice any time of year!

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pineapple, mango, and papaya in a red ipa..whoa, that’s creative! Aroma is slightly fruity, but I wouldn’t 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.

Bottle. Pours clear amber. Aroma and flavor are toasted and bready malts, faint berries, and some grassy and citrus hop notes. Medium body.

teamsale (174) - Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle pours a clear golden orange with a one finger sand head and lots of lacing. Sweet caramel aroma with citrus and herb. Taste is initially sweet but as the sweetness fades it gives way to increasing bitterness done just right.

Medium body with flavors of citrus, herbal hops and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Hungover (93) - 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 (1792) - 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.

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.
