-2014 Fresh Hop version- Bottle into shaker. Thick creamy prevalent head, tons of sediment, this thing looks gorgeous. Smells like pine, berries, orange. Taste orange, smoke, mixed berry, sweet red wine. Really enjoyed this, perfect after a long day on the slopes!

Poured a orange Amber with white head and lace. Aroma was malty a bit of pine. Taste combo comes out like Dawn dish soap. Not impressed with this one. Bitter finish.

Good but not outstanding. Reasonably hoppy. Not as aggressive as I would like

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 355 ml bottle from Bier-Deluxe.de
Copper, moderate hazy body, with a big, creamy, off-white head.
Aroma of sweet berries, peach, some tropical fruits, biscuit, some bubblegum, soap.
Wonderful taste of citrus candy, pine, peach, berries, orange, biscuit, black tea, some spices and wood.
Medium, quite creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, subtly sweet malty, a bit dry, piney, quite zesty, a bit spicy.
Delicious! Surprisingly malty, while there are still loads of fruity and piney hops. Pretty unique, with a very distinctive, bitter-sweet-spicy balance, that on the one hand fits the holiday season perfectly and on the other hand makes this an easily recognisable beer, I guess. Overall even better than I expected, exactly how I want a Red IPA!

350ml bottle, vintage 2013, from a forgotten place in my cellar. Thanks to djoeye. Rocky off-white head blanketing the glass. Close to clear amber coloured body. Mid-sweet grapefruit, wood, and brown malts on the nose. Mild spiced dried fruits, citrus peels, caramel and bread are present to the taste buds. Smooth leafy hop bitterness to the finish. Pleasing and with fine drinkability (Tromsø 29.01.2015).

Bottle labelled "2014" from a Wild Plum shop in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Pours orange-amber with a nice persisting, off-white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Lots of hops here, with citrus, grapefruit, pine on strong malt base that balances the heavy bitterness. The taste is heavy bitter with a smooth, full body, not unlike an IIPA.
