COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the real red ale! Dark crystal malts and lots of Irish Northdown and Centennial hops come together to create this strong hoppy ale. Dry hopping in the finishing tanks add the final touch.

Koskela (287) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 27, 2014
A hoppy aroma accompinied with a malty sweetness come from this hazy red ale with almost no off white head. A hoppy bitter dry taste at first with a sweetish malty flavor in the middle with a bitter and alcoholy taste on the aftertaste. Its pretty decent minus the haziness Its light medium bodied with decent carb. Worth a try pretty good.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Pours a thin head on a hazy rust colored body. The aroma is barley and malty all the way through. The taste has a solid malt backbone with moderate lemon bitterness. Good balance. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Enjoyable.

Barreras (971) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Pours a rich copper penny color with a piney nose aroma. Taste is clean and simple with a grapefruit aftertaste. Notes of earthy pine needles mixed with a floral film left on the palate after the swallow. An slight IPA style finish with a quickly dissipating bitterness. A good Irish Red beer.

Great dark ruby-red color with a head that is even rather orange itself. Hoppy nose dominates malt scent, lot of grapefruit and pine. Taste is super hoppy (more grapefruit and pine, plus orange) for an IRA, which I personally find extremely yummy, but with a robust, earthy caramel malt presence that stands up to the hops very impressively. Very easy to drink. Maybe too hoppy for the a traditional IRA, but a very good offering by Rubicon.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Super hoppy Irish red ale. Strictly for the hop heads. Rubicon makes some tasty beers and this is anothrr example. I like my Irish ales to be big on the malty side. This one is all thr way on the hoppy side.

Thisis12ptfont (836) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Fresh hops and raisin filled malts come through on the aroma. Deep, smokey brown color with a small foam. Relatively thick, dark malts upfront with subtle, grassy hops floating about in the back. Strong carbonation and full bodied. Overall, this is a good quality brew with primarily malty flavors and a subtle boozey finish. Iíd give this an A rating.

culchiem (2492) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle from SED. Ruby with a tan head that settles into a thin film. Aroma is citrus hop. Flavour starts with a little malt but quickly drifts into bitter hop. Fruity and dry bitter palate.
