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.

Did not love it. Donít know why. Dark red, viscous like the others in this new series, structured head, good lacing. Nose of sweet malts and caramel. Mouth syrupy, rather than full and pleasing. Taste of caramel and, well, bubble gum, sugar, and nondeScript hops. Just did not work for me as a red IPA. Not bad as a red.

Medium brown body, tan head. Nose is caramel, alcohol, pine, a bit of mint. Flavor is caramel, minty & piney hops, honey/cotton candy sweetness. Strong bitterness dominates the finish with slightly burnt caramel.

DalzAle (2012) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle. Clear dark brown/amber colored pour, a lasting 1/4 inch head and a nice nutty and spicy hop aroma. Flavor is heavy caramel, some peppery hops and finshes sweet and a little medicinal. Not bad, like a hopped up version of Boston Lager. Iíd buy this again.

Dark brown or amber - really nice head. Huge malt and pine aroma - great hops smell. Lots of hop flavor which pleasantly overcomes a lot of the malt flavor until towards the end of the finish where some caramel notes from the malt come through. Itís a good beer.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2012 Dark clear red nice creamy head great lacing. Aroma was initial mineral/metallic/nothing but after the head resided and a few sips it has a really nice aroma mostly pine then some spice and herbal along with some roast light carmel .Taste is really good haveing a great hop flavor along with some roasted carmel malt light sweetness, there is a bit of slickness/also seems somewhat salty. There is a bit of a cardboard like middle but maybe just the roasted malt dryness,a bit of cherry with a salty semi sweet roasty bitter finish leaving herbal/pine/salt lingering.Pretty nice-kinda salty though. After an aged batch 1: Does not age to well.B-vitamins. Malts come out heavily then your left over with a hoppy jar of b vitamins.Drink it fresh.

The aroma is really inviting with roasted caramel malt and earthy grassy hops. The appearance is deep amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma but slightly like cardboard. The palate is average. Overall a very decent beer.

Very clean tasting. Has a sharp hop bitterness but lacks any real punch. Still it has a bit of astringent at the end but it still drinkable all the way

Kinz (3567) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Pours a clear deep red, very attractive creamy, lasting head with good lace. Aroma is primarily of earthy and piney hops. Flavor is initially of toasty malts and more earth and pine hops. When cold, it is a bit disjointed, but as it warmed somewhat, things really came together for a very nice beer. Strong lingering bitterness. Awesome creamy mouthfeel. Good brew, happy that BBC is doing these.

22oz bottle, Batch No. 1. Pours beautiful deep mahogany with a large eggshell head. Fantastic malt profile along with pine and grapefruit hops. Bitter yet very drinkable with a nice residual malt sweetness.
