3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 Update: Solid red IPA confirmed. This was two months old in bottle, same impressions as on tap.
On tap @ Willy McCoy’s. Pours a perfect dark amber with lasting head and great lacing. The perfect appearance for a Red IPA. Aroma is spicy hops, tropical fruit - pretty juicy overall. Taste is full and earthy with caramel, a little rye bite and plenty of piney hops. Palate is medium and smooth, which balances the flavor well. Very nice. (2/3/14)

A reddish brown beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is piney hops, caramel, and grain. The flavor is pine, sweet malt, and nutty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice late summer addition to the SN range. Rye IPA’s by nature are a little tough on the palate, which is really the only knock against this one. Nice grapefruit and citrus hop notes in the aroma and a beautiful red to orange color. Large white head, good lacing on the glass. Could use slightly more of a bready or caramel malt backbone to combat the spicy rye and bitter hops, balance is a little off.

tap at the Chico brewpub Aug 2013 - Pours dark amber with a light tan head and excellent lacing. The aroma is dominated by citrus hops. The flavor features caramel malt and crisp, aggressive citrus hop bitterness. It goes well together. There’s a medium body and a crisp, bitter finish.

Really hoppy without a ton of bitterness. If you like mapleleaf from anchor brewing youd like this. Great aroma.

Bottle. Clear and red. Hoppy, floral aroma, red apple, red orange and hard rock candy. Bitter, dry with candy, a little piney taste. Medium body, smooth texture with candy and very bitter finish. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Thick amber, small to moderate foamy white head, nice lacing.   Soft hoppy nose, a little non-descript.   Citrus peel and pith up front.   Mild sweetness, smooth.   Not too bitter.   Not a big IPA, its almost lighter than their SNPA.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Somewhat of a boring finish, light, lacking much... um, brightness, flavor, or IPA qualities.   Too light for an IPA in my opinion.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper with a large slowly fading taupe tauper. Aroma is a nice balance of citrus and floral hops with toffee and sweet bread underneath. Taste of toffee, bready malt, citrus and a mild dry and semi-bitter finale.
