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. You’ll notice a strong hoppy flavor with caramel malt undertones and a unique color that gives this IPA a whole new personality.

Bottle from Winter Variety Pack. Reddish orange pour, almost no head. Aroma of caramel, pine, faint citrus. Flavor of caramel, old hops, husky grains, lagerish finish, astringent into the far finish, citrus pith. Below average.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Ar: Roasted caramel, orange, grapefruit, and lime. Ap: Crystal-clear dark amber - small off-white head with poor retention, just a thin haze of foam remaining. T: Toasted malt and slightly burnt caramel - medium bitterness, has a bit of a tannic quality - some hints of orange and grapefruit - finish is bitterness and caramel. P: Medium body, medium-high carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: Middle-of-the-road amber ale (really not an IPA).

Suttree (5186) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Looks red, so it’s got that going for it. Smells piney with a bit of caramel. Taste is caramel and toasty malt and some pine hops.

puboflyons (2173) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 1, 2013
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is medium amber with reddish hues and a small head. The aroma tends to highlight the grains and hops. The body was medium. The taste also had a graininess but there was a low to moderate hop finish. Not too bad.

BREWMUSKCLES (2261) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2013
brown brew with a banded and foamy head of off white and light brown. mouthfeel of a Scotch ale with a bit of malt and scratchy burnt peat. Some nice hoppy flavor of white and red grape a bit of ivy and a fresh pine finish. stages well through the senses like a good ale should.

jefcon (1400) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Has the weight and flavor of wet cardboard. Soppy hops, pine and generic malts. Kind of a hot, red, rye finish. Not my favorite.

j12601 (6611) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby garnet with a fairly large beige white head. Dusty papery hops and a bit of toast on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet toasty malt with a bit of a hoppy background. Light bitterness, easy drinking, but not a lot of complexity. A bit of that papery note from the nose comes back into the finish.

SoberDave (143) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Pours a nice orange-amber colour. Smells of hops, citrus and a touch of caramel. These are brought out in the flavour, adding on a bit of spice. Nice bite and fizz on the tongue.

Studentofbrrs (90) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
Aroma is splattered with hop, citrus and hint of caramel. Smooth hoppy taste, not too bitter very enjoyable

HighlanderOne (1016) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Poured from bottle. Good aroma of hops and caramel. Red amber with coarse tan head. Mix of hop flavors - pine, floral, citrus - along with caramel, butterscotch and a hint of spice. Not bad.
