RATINGS: 66   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.45/5   ABV: -
Red Truck IPA is an American India Pale Ale, generously dry hopped to give this beer a full hop aroma and flavor, but with a strong caramel malt profile that balances the intense hop flavor and aroma with a slight sweetness that makes this beer a rich experience in flavor.

soft but distinct hop aroma, maltiness and hops seemed to balance nicely in the taste, but not hoppy enough to be classified among the best IPAís

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2005 Another nice surprise! Huge American hop aroma. Lasting, creamy head. A good juicy malt backbone, reasonably stout palate, very well balanced. Not overly bittered, just tons of aroma hops in here. Recommended!

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Pours a clear copper color with a nice rocky head and thick lacing. Nose of apricots, cherry, citrus, pine. Very balanced malty/fruity flavors with a nice bitter hop finish. Very nice IPA.

A yellow copper color with decent head. Aromas of citrus and hops, very inviting and makes one want to taste the beer. But when I took a drink I was overwhelmed by bitterness and the fruity, citrus smell was lost to my taste buds. Not quite balanced enough for my taste, but not a bad beer. However, I probably wont buy this again.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2005 Dark Orange. Delicate, vibrant, stunning nose of coffee beans, pine, apricot, resin, grapefruit, oil and cherries. Raw, cutting, glorious and copious amount of hops completely takeover this brew. Toasty, fruity, vanilla, caramel like malts fit in with the massive piney, citrusy, sprucey and woody hop profile. Damn, what a beer!

the color of a polished fiddle, a clear and leather-orange brew-- packed snug under cushions of foam. foam the color-- and roughly the consistency-- of melted vanilla ice cream. the red truck label won some ovation for design quality at the colorado brewers guild fest in salida. i love a good label, but that alone wonít sell the goods. what does sell this íol truck is that itís basically well made and itíll go the distance, itís reliable. itís a nice session and the price is reasonable. you get a nose full of green smelling hops, like pine, with baking almond-butter cookies and strawberry candle wax. true to an IPA, the hops bite deep mid tongue, and radiate outward from there like riffles in a pond, lapping over the little stones and stumps of mild and tan waffle malt sweetness. sure, thereís faster and slicker IPAs out there, but this oneís got all the ride this cowpoke needs in a pinch.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Clear copper appearance, good head formation. Strong hoppy, piney citrus aroma. Prickly, spicey palate, dry in the finish with a strong bitter bite. Extreme bitterness but not much balance or complexity.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Pours a medium, off-white head that lingers thin with little/no lacing. Nice hop aroma, slightly woody. Clear bronze beer with nice bitter, oaky flavor that finishes long and almost smoky. Very good overall, could use a bit more malt body.

snowtiger (106) - Brighton, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Had it at the brewery on tap and in the bottle. Very good looking deep amber color. Big head with NW hop aroma. Lace lasts all the way down the glass. Taste is slightly bitter and malty. Nicely balanced. A good effort at an American-style IPA. Although this beer won a medal or American-style ESB at the World Beer Cup.

Very nice hoppy taste. Lacing was typical for this style. The only bad thing I can say about this beer is that it was not very malty.
