COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is Sloop Brewing’s bold aggressive beer. The Red C contains three different hop varieties that begin with the letter “C”. The beer has a deep red hue and stands at 6.7% abv. Red C pours with a crimson red color and an effervescent white head. The complex malt flavor comes from a variety of finely kilned grains. The American hops provide the beer with hints of lemon, mango and citrus flavors. The clean ale yeast allows your palate to correctly identify all of these complex flavors.

Bottle. Pours dark amber with a thin white head and lots of sediment. Aroma is floral and piney with a nice peach note. Taste is citrusy with a caramel malt backbone and again the peach note. Palate is decent but could go for more carb. Nice and clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In short: A bitter, dry and yeasty coniferous/citrus copper IPA. Pretty good.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed 1.5 month after purchase, bottle from my man Jay.
The look: Partly cloudy copper body topped by a large beige head with medium retention leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is very coniferous, very scented, green pine needles shoved up deep in my nose, freshly cut pine-tree, cedar notes. Taste is very toasted, dry croutons, a bit of caramel, strong yeast presence, mouth drying flour sensation. Assertive hopping that is a whole lot of dry pine-tree and lemon zest and grapefruit flesh. Bitterness sensation of medium-high intensity. Quite dry. Big fluffy lively body, maybe a bit too fluffy/yeasty. Pretty damn good even if I thought the malts lacked definition and presence. I wasn’t disappointed by this beer, and a good way to avoid unnecessary disappointments in life is to not expect a beer rating to explain to you how to avoid unnecessary disappointments in life.

Bomber from Half Time. Pours clear ruddy copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Med + body. Flavor is citrus, tropical fruit and some fairly roasted malt. IPA? Heavily hopped amber? Who can tell. Fricking supercalafragalisticexpialodocius flavor - or close thereto. If you can get it , get it.

Thanks to Bill for picking this one up today in Newburgh.. wow i am impressed. The Red C pours a reddish amber with a strong smell of mango and island fruit. Delicious hoppiness, bitterness complements the sweet mango and lemon zest. this beer is complex and you can truly taste each unique ingredient. Ill be sure to try others from this fine hudson valley brewery

Bottle at Paul’s. Thanks to Jay #’s for introducing us to a new local brewery! Pours amber with thin beige head. Interesting aroma of pine, potatoes, and vodka with a kick of juicy citrus in the background. Flavor has spicy rye notes, a rich malt background, bread, and black pepper. Lots of really nice rye-pa qualities in this one. Early winner for Sloop!
