COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wily red IPA gets its character from the Tasmanian hops that are full of grapefruit, pine and earthy notes creating a bold flavor that threads throughout the taste. The hops are balanced by a core of roasty malts that give this brew body and richness with hints of toffee. This flavorful brew is rounded and smooth with a dry and citrusy hop finish.

Hopsclation (89) - Chicago, - DEC 14, 2013
Surprisingly complex and full beer from sam adams inc. Caramel, spicy rye, salty hops, sweet toffee, and heart of palm dipped in brown sugar. Worth trying if you see it.

January 28th, 2012 - Boston Beer Company’s Tasman Red pushes the New Zealand hops profile with new and interesting territory in their Tasman Red Red IPA. It pours a beautiful deep red, and from the almost-crimson brew comes a skunk, pungent, botanical hops, replete with savory boiled artichoke. It’s full and textured, and also new and unexpected. And in the taste, too, artichoke appears, almost like munching on a perfectly cooked artichoke heart, with touches of toffee and caramel to make it a strange, but delicious treat. This flavor profile is bold, but if this is a representative sample, I’m game for new New Zealand hops in my beers.

ElGaucho (2211) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Rich and malty unlike most IPAs. Beautiful murky reddish brown body with a yellowish tan head. Lots of hops on the tongue unlike those absent from the nose. More of an Amerixan Strong or dry barley wine than an IPA. Very good.

BrewMstr (90) - Pleasant View, Utah, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Malty and sweet aroma, dark red appearance, earthy and balanced taste. Tasmanian hops work well. Sweeter than normal for an IPA, and better red IPA’s are in the market, but overall worth a taste.

Enjoyable sip after sip. Definitely earthy and nutty, wonderful hop balance and a pleasant aftertaste.

Pershing (476) - Garland, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2013
24 oz. bottle poured reddish brown into a stemmed tulip beer glass. Lasting tan head with a fair amount of carbonation. Aroma of toffee and caramel malts. Lots of malt in this one that needs a little more hop bitterness. Thick mouth feel with a coffee taste. Filling and lasting finish.

jgentgesdo (670) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Pours reddish-brown with a medium tan head. Nose is charcoal, grapefruit, apples. Rather sweetish flavor. Acidic grapefruit finish. A little watery. Inoffensive but doesn’t knock my socks off.
