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.

A really good ipa. Color is a deep red amber two finger head with decent retention. The aroma is pungent citrus and pine with a bit of clay. The taste is sweet up front with a bust of caramel but finishes with a coating piney bitterness. medium body, finish films my mouth with light bitterness.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, malt, pine, resin, slight citrus, and a hint of caramel. Poured deep amber in color with a large, creamy, rocky, tan head, that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, pine, slight toffee, light resin, slight wood, slight grass, and some citrus. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Heavily bitter, slightly sweet, malt, hop, pine, resin, slight wood, light grass finish is dry. A lot like the Third Voyage IPA, with more malt and less bitterness.

Dark, almost blood red color. Floral nose with a bit of soapy sweetness. Very resiny throughout with a strong woody hop back. Mildly, comforting malt aftertaste. Not as balanced as I’d like for a red IPA, but a solid brew for hopheads.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Ruby pour with a thick foamy off white head. aroma is actually fairly light. Toffee and light piney hop. A lot of toffee in the flavour. Toasted malt body. Fruity tones in there under that. light piney and floral hop presence. Not nearly as hoppy as I had hoped. Overall, not bad though.

Loved this intense grapefruit and pine hopped brew. Aroma leans a bit to grapefruit, while flavor leans to pine. This ale leaves your taste buds numb! Pretty red amber color, with medium head. They must add this to their year-around lineup!

Deep, ruby dark red with a heavy frothy head. It has aromas of pine hops with a little caramel roastiness. The flavors are a range of citrusy hops and a sweet maltiness. Good beer.

Bottle:   Ruby hued deep caramel, large frothy beige head, very sticky lacing.   Hoppy nose, slight ctirus rind and minor shrubby notes.   A little green hoppiness up front, some strong citrus pith follows.   The one thing this needs is a bit of sweetness.   Has the bitterness, but is off balance.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Has a malty amberishness like finish, with a stronger hop presense.   Decent beer, but would be better if there was a bit more sweetness to balance it out.   Thanks again Jimmy!

A better version of SNCA. A ton of the piney, resinous hops expected in this style, but with an added hit of juicy citrus notes. Just a touch of toastiness from the malt. Balanced, medium body. Drier finish. Very drinkable. Awesome beer. Right there with Noble Pils and Imperial Pils for the best Sam Adams beers available.
