chinchill (1867) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 22 oz bottler served in a Belgian snifter. Pours deep red-brown in color with a decent beige head. Spotty lacing. Rich aromas with roasted grains and hops in about equal measure. Floral, fruity and toffee notes. Flavor: has that characteristic Rogue hop flavor along with a rich dark malt mix. Mildly bitter. Feel: medium body; lively carbonation.

northropfrye (2208) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
Sample at Flatlanders Beer Festival, Wpg. Definitely not an IPA, rather an India Red Ale as described. A red ale with more hops than normal is basically what this is. That being said, I could have been even hoppier for my liking, but overall it has a nice balance, though you can’t taste the 75 IBUs because of the malt balance. Still a very nice beer.

nakedwhendrunk (2095) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAY 28, 2014
I had this on tap at Hangar on the Wharf, Juneau, AK. I had this in a pint glass. The appearance was a dark red to almost ruddy brown color with no head because it was a bar pour. There wasn’t any lacing either. The smell was a strong caramel maltiness with a subtle roasty/nuttiness running in and out of the aroma. The taste was a caramel malty sweetness that gave me a dry roasted nutty aftertaste and lead to a super dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a medium on the body. To be honest, there really wasn’t much sessionability about it. I found when I tried to sip this, I burped a lot so once again the carbonation seemed off I guess. Overall, this is an American Red Ale, so not or anywhere close to an IPA. Therefore this was rated as an American Red Ale and actually, I didn’t really care for this.

bobroman (405) - Torun, POLAND - MAY 18, 2014
My first and probably only crab IPA ;). Intensive fruity aroma, mostly of plums. Head disappearing to ring. Cloudy dark copper body. Medium intensive bitterness in taste with dried plums from hops. A lot of malty sweetness balances bitterness.

Pours amber with a thick foamy off white head. Aroma is malty and some citrus. Fairly sweet. Needs mor hoppiness for balance. Lots of caramel. Medium bodied. Overall nice beer.

Pours dark amber/copper with a rocky light tan head. Aroma is grapefruit, floral, soft sweetish grain, bread, some caramel, and a hint of lemon custard/yogurt. Taste is bread, sweet grain, citrus, a bit of yogurt, and resinous bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel.

Disapointment. It’s not ballanced. Too sweet too bitter. Appearance. Red with small head. Aroma sweet, grainy, floral. Taste: very bitter from the begining. Again floral, sweet. Not drinkable.
