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.

DrSilverworm (6975) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2013
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.

j12601 (6863) - 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.
