COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Give me your tears, Gypsy! This ruby red ale will mesmerize you with a caravan of malt flavour and entrancing hop presence. Served as Gyparillo Red IPA at Cask Days 2012, dry hopped with Gypsy and Amarillo Hops.

I really liked this beer. Nicely hopped with a malty side to it. Good colour. I will definitely try more beers from Parallel 49.

BeerAndPonies (109) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
341 ml bottle from a Parallel 49 sampler six-pack from Liquor Depot, served in a straight-sided goblet. Pours a deep ruby red hue with a light tan cap that leaves some lacing. Aroma is deep with vinous and citrus hops, moderately sweet, with plenty of spiced dark fruit and berries, and a backing of malt toastiness; flavor is just as vast and has citrus, then vinous, fruitiness, and spiced toastiness. Moderately chewy body, very pleasant aftertaste. A truly luscious red ale, and I do love my red ales.

wlajwl (4343) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 1, 2015
Aroma is toasted malts, mild/medium nuttiness and fruit. The flavor is fruit, malts/toasted malts, citrus, very light hops and a mix of bitter and slightly sour/tangy in the finish.

Good start beer, not too heavy not to light. It's a good opener. Cool on the pallet, not quite refreshing

Pours hazy dark Amber. Aroma of red fruit, some malt. A boring taste with not bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cobaink2 (151) - seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Not much carbonation on opening. Pretty flat. It is a ruby red hue and tastes of melon and biscuit malts. Not a heavy beer by any means. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle, pours a dark red-brown with cream lace. Boozy, bready aroma with huge malt, somewhat spicy flavors. Thin and wet on the palate.

DrSilverworm (7999) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2015
11.5oz bottle, thanks to aabean for bringing this back from California with her. Red amber orange color. Thin off-white head. Decent lace. Toasty malt, light spiciness. Biscuit. Mild bit of oxidization. Medium body. Kind of slick texture. Lighter crisp carbonation. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet, kind of dry. A decent red ale, but the age is showing a bit. Would be better fresh, I’m sure.

Bottle from Ferris. Pours reddish amber off white head. Nose/taste of resinous pine, caramel malt and toasted bread. Medium body.

Had it on tap, light refreshing with a moderate amount of hopps. A decent well balanced new style ale.
