3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. What isa Red IPA? Lets find out. This was clear deep red with a creamy off white head. Nice looking beer. The aroma is classic west coast IPA with fruit. That is tasted along with a nice dose of Irish Ale notes. I don’t usually care for Irish Ales. Come to find out all they need is a good load of hops! This is good. Very nice IPA by itself. Citrus and tropical fruit. The Irish malts work well here. Who knew? At one time some sulfur from European hops is tasted. I like this. Well done, Third Street.

This was shared with Strykzone via the magic of Facebook Chat were we get to share the same beer 1500 miles apart. The poured a dare amber with a beige head. Nose of rich caramel malts, some ripe fruit, citrus and floral hops Medium plus in body. The flavor is very rich, and full of such things as berries, mange, pine, citrus, and goodness knows what else. The finish is light bitter, and soft. In fact it is remarkable for such a big flavored beer how smooth it is and how easily it drinks. Combining a red with an IPA works really well here. Very nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled@fonefan. Ambery copper colour with a mediumsized slightly off-white head, which leaves some slight lace. Aroma is herbal, grassy, some tropical fruits and mild floral notes as well. Flavour is rather similar, with some berries, mild cookies and biscuits as well as some caramel malts and actually a quite crispy maltiness overall.
