Pours a nice ruby red with a moderate amount of foamy whitehead grapefruit almost sour aroma. Hi level of carbonation light bodied. Not really enough malt balance for a red IPA in my opinion. Unremarkable

(bottle - 12 oz) Pours a slightly reddish hue with a puffy white head. Aroma is standard piney aroma with hints of citrus. Flavor is pretty much the same. Pine resin and bitter hops. A nice IPA but nothing out of the ordinary.

Aromas of toast, caramel, and citrus fruit. Clear ruby-bronze with a fully lasting, rocky, beige head. Off-dry, bitter, toasty, and somewhat grapey. Medium bodied, subtly spicy, carbonation is decent, and finishes with earthy bitterness and a touch of caramel sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Standard-looking, "over-the-counter" red ale ... dark, reddish amber, thin but sticky head. Strong caramel character, unoffending in any way ... richly malted. Better flavored example of a macro lager. (#5021, 5/12/2013)

Appearance: Pours a red cloud.
Aroma: Aroma of caramel, light pine.
Taste: Light-medium bitterness, lots of caramel malt.
Summary: Red IPAs are a particular favorite style of mine. This beer is a solid example, but not something Iím going to go out of my way to have.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose is quite hoppy, pungent and light woody, lightly earthy, with some caramel. I donít know much about Calypso or Palisade hops, but I like how theyíre used here. Deep red body with orange highlights and a clingy off-tan head. Taste is strongly bitter, lightly rubbery, a good helping of citrus, very dry with a hint of sweetness from the oily hops. Caramel pushed away in favor of an earthen tone. Aggressive light-medium body. Like the pungency on the tongue as well, but thereís a bit too much lost in the malt department.

Pours a copper red amber color. Aroma is malty with a tingle of hoppy bitterness. Flavor is pretty standard IPA. A little bit more malty sweetness. Feels a little thin but otherwise, pretty solid.
