Combining the the ultra fruity, citrus hop notes of Simcoe and Summit hops and the caramel/munich malt backbone typical of a Red Ale make this IPA a step "out of the box" compared to typical IPAs. 60IBU

22oz bomber poured into a tulip. From Herchick, thanks Bob! Pours a clear dark ruby with about a finger of light tan head. Aroma is citrus dominated with a hint of pine resin and grapefruit. Taste is light bitter. Citrus and pine mostly. It seems the taste is way out of line with how good it smells. Medium bodied with a pretty slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I’ve had one other beer from TBK and I liked that one a lot more. Regardless, very drinkable.

22 oz. bottle via trade with miketd - Pours a reddish-brown color with a 3/4 finger thick off white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is floral, pine, and herbal hops. Flavor is a nice balance off hops and light toasted malt. Medium body. A good beer. Thanks Mike.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2010
(22oz bomber thanks to blutt59) Pours a clear, deep red with beige head. Aroma of nice pine and light caramel. Flavor is the same with a bit of woodiness and earth with a strong hoppy bitter. Mouth feel is medium body with high carbonation. Overall, not bad.

Slight caramel and citrus hops aroma... Flavor is a nice blend of caramel malts and citrus hop bitterness... Not much on the palate.. Pretty good beer.

MrBunn (2736) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2009
On tap at Mad Brewer. Body is a deep reddish amber with a little bit of head and aromas that are kind of light, but a nice mix of malt and citrus hops. Flavor is fuller and is very good. A quick hit of caramel malt fades into a citrus and peppery hops finish. Mouthfeel is silky and almost creamy. This is very pleasant.

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Deep red with a creamy tan head. Spicy hop aroma with a nice molasses malt backer. Grapefruit, light pine, too. Flavor has a powerful molasses malt presence to it that stands up really well against the strong grapefruit, pine, and spicy hops. This one is a real winner.

Nickls (2374) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle shared by CaptainCougar. Murky dark brown orange, with an off-white head. Aroma is a big mix of caramel and citrus hops. Astringent, assertive citrus and soapy hops in the flavor. Medium body with scraping carbonation.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2011
22oz bottle. Pours darker than most ipas. Big ruby red body with medium off-white head. A beautiful, fresh ruby red grapefruit pulp nose, with just a touch of sugar/sweetness. Some pine in there as well. Flavor of bitter, grassy hops...dry and biting. Actually picking out some cereal, biscuity characteristics as well. Certainly more earthy and grainy here. A great, unique ipa. standout beer from a largely unknown brewery

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle from John. Pours clear amber with a half finger beige head. The nose is grapefruit and toffee. The taste is caramel malt, grapefruit rind and pine. Medium mouthfeel. Another nice IPA from these guys. Thanks again J!
