3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep copper with sizable beige head. Hops and malt on the nose with a very, very malty mouthfeel. Slightly bitter finish. A bit too malty for someone who may love hops. Flavorful, different. A malty amber with a kick of hops.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home poured into my HF wine glass. Appearance is glowing red with a fluffy cream head and great lacing. Big sweet, caramelly aroma, grapefruit, toffee, sweet fruits, red licorice, orange peel, and bread; pretty damn sweet. Taste is big grapefruit, orange, bread, caramel, grass, somewhat sweet, and soapy with a big bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really sweet upfront, with a somewhat doughy middle, with great hoppy notes, and a huge bitter bite. Well-done.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, deep amber with a medium, beige, frothy head and some lacing. Aroma is caramel malt and some grassy hops. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, and toffee with a lot more earthy, grassy hops than expected though still very even with hop bitterness contained. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Very good for the style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from the taproom. Really pretty red-brass color with nice foam lacing down the glass. Evident dry-hopping, citrus and pine aroma. Easy drinking style (What is amber anyway?) Plenty of malt backs up the big bitter hop finish. Iíd call it an IRA- India Red Ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is caramel, citrus, toasted malts. The flavor is similar with American citrusy hops and a caramel toasted malt character. I really enjoy this beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 Didnít realize I had tasted this one before, quite a while back. Interestingly enough, I gave it the exact same scores all-around. I love it when that happens. My previous rating was in my beer infancy. This is pretty plain overall, both for an IPA and a red IPA.
Hoppier than expected. Citrus and caramel, pretty carbonated. Nice color, decent beer. 7+4+7+3+12
