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.

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.

j12601 (6863) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle that I took to a tasting at Paul’s. Pours a very lightly hazed ruby crimson amber with a thin beige head. Big bright citrus on the nose, touches of malt and a bit of spice. Medium bodied, lean malt and a good amount of earth and malt. Chewy malt, a good amount of toast and earthiness. A touch of bitterness and quinine on the finish.

Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Hazy amber. Great hoppy aroma full of citrus, flowers and pine needles. Flavor has a bit of maltiness with faint sweetness and a nice bitter hoppy finish, citric and piney. Medium-bodied. A good IPA.

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.

jredmond (5655) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Draft at pony bar HK. Pours a reddish amber body with thin white lacing, no head. Aroma is super strange for an IPA/pale - sweet caramel candy, vanilla, light pine needles and toffee. Thankfully and surprinsingly not a malt bomb. Flavors include bright pine and grapefruit. This is so weird. Almost like one of those candies that transforms flavors in your mouth. The aroma is completely misleading to what the the palate takes in, and it’s a not a bad thing. Overall, super unique and interesting.

kramer (5105) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish copper body under a minimal fizzy off-white head that vanished quickly. The nose is nicely hoppy with some citrusy notes. A little too much toasty and sweet grain below the hops for my tastes though, hopefully this isn’t overly sweet. The flavor really reminds me of a moderately hopped Irish Ale more than what I’m expecting from an IPA. Lots of toasty and husky malt below the minimally bitter citrusy hops. This doesn’t reach up into IPA level as far as I’m concerned. If this is their most aggressive beer, then they need to expand their horizons a bit. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. This one just doesn’t do it for me.
