4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In the era of Arrogant Bastard and other red ales featuring aggressive Northwestern American hops, Runoff Red is a bit surprising. Appearance is what you’d expect with a ruby-amber shade and creamy suds. Aroma is balanced equally between toasted malt and piney hops. At the start, there are hop notes of berry and orange. The balance then reverses mid-palate and caramelly malt takes over with hints of chocolate. It’s certainly a change of pace from the other American Strong Ales/Red IPA’s... whatever the hell you want to call them. Runoff Red an approachable and beautifully balanced ale to mark the ending stages of winter.

Pours copper with a good white foamy head with a tint of orange. Aroma of citrus fruits like orange, mandarin and some papaya with a hint of pine. Taste has a brief tinned tropical fruits touch, woody middle and a nice bitter finish. Excellent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally rated on 3/2/15. Pours a nice dark reddish/ copper hue with a tan head that receded quickly but is leaving some thick but patchy lace. Mostly citrus hops that hit you at first smell. Flavor is caramel, grapefruit, and blood orange hints here. Finish is incredibly smooth, not too bitter. Overall a nice IPA, red or otherwise.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep red with off white head. Light aroma of alcohol very little hops. Flavor is slightly off like they used a buscuit malt or something that does not go with the hops. Oh well.
