COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Red IPA is a twist on a traditional West Coast IPA featuring a deep red color from European dark caramel malts. We brew with generous amounts of American hops including Calypso, Palisade and Chinook to give this IPA a distinctive hop aroma. Youíll notice a strong hoppy flavor with caramel malt undertones and a unique color that gives this IPA a whole new personality.

This beer pours a deep copper with red hugh. The head is thick and foamy and lingers. The nose is hoppy and caramel but not huge. It starts smooth and slowly finishes with slight hop finish. It is lighter than I expected but the finish lingers a bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle, shared by DanielCoor. Mostly clear red / orange color. Good thin off-white head. Solid spread of lace. Decent-looking, but the nose is less-promising. Light caramel malt, some odd vegetable aroma. Medium body. Light, softer, kind of smooth carbonation. More bitter taste. Spicy fruity hop aroma in the aftertaste. Light caramel malt, little toasty malt. More dry in the finish. Alright red ale / IPA hybrid.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a bit of a red tinge to it and a moderate off-white head. Nose has some good hoppy and pine notes to it with a subtle malt undertone. Taste is a little bit bitter, but fairly well balanced. OK.

joshmcg000 (334) - Iowa, USA - APR 4, 2013
Pours slightly hazy red with off white head. Little bit of malty aroma, not much there though. Caramel malt backbone. A different hop flavor that Iím not used to. Not particularly bitter, a little grassy. Overall not a whole lot jumps out and me. I wouldnít even call this an IPA, but it is not a bad beer. Just not finding much to love here.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Faint hop and musty malt aroma, really not an IPA sort of scent. Deep orange color, it really is almost red. Taste is bitter, but not as much as Mattís new Dry Hop Lager, which I had earlier. More sweet malt than most standard strength IPAís. What might be termed a copper ale by some brewers.

mensch (259) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Guess you canít call it an IRA? Faint woody and minty aromas doing battle with a somewhat lager-like mineral note. There are some tasty hop flavors in there, if you can get past the vegetal and mineral off-flavors. Very lagerlike, an IRL? Really nice color.

Doofgoblin (335) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 Lacks complexity but not terrible. Aroma is slightly musty with a faint hop note. Also getting a little dirty sock smell? Pours a nice amber thatís a bit reddish. Taste is somewhat malty, bitter, and mineral. Finishes bitter and fairly dry.

Beerman6686 (4671) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2013
This one poured a lighter red color with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, light yeast, and light citrus hops. Flavor was bland hops overpowered by caramel sweetness. Not good, but ok for saranac.

12 oz bottle. Pours red/amber with a 1/2" white head. Aroma was ripe with caramel and fruit. Lightly sweet flavor, backed with some fruity hops. Moderate bodied palate with a light bitter aftertaste. Smooth and easy drinking.

Nice dark red/brown beer with a decent sized head. Taste is okay. Need a bit more of hops. Really good quality-price ratio. This cost 1,69 dollars at Good Bear in East Village, NYC.
