A decent IPA. Not quite a NW IPA, but pretty darn close. Iíd call it a 50/50 mixture of British and NW IPA. Good beer.

Solid effort from Red Lodge. On par with Daleís Pale Ale? No, but better than the rating. Fault is the residual bitterness, but aroma and up front taste is quite good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Resinous grapefruit with a bit of a pungent, cattiness and pine. Color is dark copper with a thin-white head. Flavors similar to aroma, sweet with a good amount of hop flavor manifested as pine and a bit of citrus fruit of some sort. Flavor is hop-forward, but there is a lot of sweet caramel malt with some toasted bread. I like that the body isnít too full,.. itís a little thin but I think thatís a good thing in this beer. Itís flavorful but drinkable.

Wonderful aroma, but body and bitterness on the thin side. Woohoo! for Montana having a beer brewed in the state.

Hoppy and fruit aromas. Golden coloured strong in alcohol and hoppy with a crisp and bitter lasting finish.

this is a combined rating. this beer was availible both on regular draft an nitro tap the summer of 2007. the nitro was boring, but as it hid much of the hop character made ipa accessible to hop haters. the regular draft was a solid brewpub ipa. reminded me of a bigger version of snpa. i even went home with a growler of it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Clear copper pour with a large snady colored head. Sticky bits of lacing. Hoppy and citrus filled aroma with some decent maltiness. Not overly flavorful, the floral hops sort of give in to the matliness. Soft, grassey finish. Not the best from Red Lodge.

bottle. Solid IPA. pours a deep copper with little head. Great pine hop character from start to finish... medium body over the palate with some spice up front. Average bitter finish. Overall a very enjoyable IPA from a small brewery... thanks to my Grandfatherís neighbor for giving me this bottle!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from kyzr - thanks! Clear amber with a beige head. Pine and citrus nose, a tad floral - nice mix. Decent medium body. Piney and citrus (lemon and grapefruit) flavors with a good caramel backbone. Nice, but missing something I canít quite put a finger on.
