Pretty ruby red pour with a very thick head. Nose is piney, but not overwhelmingly so. Balanced flavor with bready malt notes and a slight caramel. Great mouthfeel with slight alcohol burn.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty red, dark. Good head,diminishes quick surprisingly. Aroma is malty, kinda nutty, fresh, and light hop of which I cant detect much. Floral, mild. Maybe soapy. Taste is good for red ipa, its very smooth with a nice malt complexity, hops are different- not really hoppy and at the same time I donít know what is going on here between malts and hops, so I guess its refined and complex, soft and creamy,no sharp or harsh malt, not overyly sweet but just enough.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Nighthawks with blonderedhead. Pint glass. Amber/copper color with some lacing and head of a tannish variety. Nose has some hops with pine and light citrus. Taste is pretty mild with a strong malt presence working well underneath a hoppy surface. Citrus and some resin. Kind of thins out towards the end with aftertaste clinging to hop bitterness. Itís nothing special but drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pouring an amber-red into the glass, the beer is less than aromatic, but capped with a thick, creamy tan head. The Runoff Red is as clear as a gemstone, and if I could find one this color, Iíd wear it. The aroma is not reaching out to me, so I lean to the glass. Pine fragrant hops aloft a malty base are now apparent in the aroma, but the first taste and a little warmth on the glass pulls all of it together.
- A fruity flavor culminates within those malts, the temperature rising and the aroma beginning to burst with big, juicy grapefruit. The carbonation is just right to carry the bitter edginess of the brew across my tongue, and at the same time, support the flavor that is now coming like a flood. A nice lacing on the glass makes for a nice visual, but that creamy head is tantalizing on my lip as I drink.
- This is quite lovely, a huge aroma when all is said and done, very visually pleasing and definitely drinkable. The finish is mild, not too punchy and Iím liking the flavor quite a lot. Nothing is making me run right out to shout about it, but this is definitely something Iíd recommend to anyone that enjoys a nice Red IPA.
