COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes called a “Red IPA”, Bombay Rouge combines the deep red color of a substantially malty ale with an IPA hopping profile. The combination creates a unique West Coast drinking experience.

Somewhat flat, tan head, caramel sweet aroma. Taste sweet under carbonated. Really full thick on palate. May be better if it were carbonated more or it fermented more.

VinegarStroke (319) - Napa, California, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle: light haze, red to toffee color with medium head and lace. Lifted malt, caramel, clean, fruity, moderate to low hop aroma. More like an east coast or English IPA. Dry, not sour and high level of bitterness. Good flavor. Loads of hops on the palate and rich malty profile that seems like crystal malt. Very different from other west coast IPA’s. I like this beer.

yngwie (14764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle, 22oz. A glowing orange-brown beer with a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma is quite malty, with dried fruits and a lovely hoppyness. Caramel, pine cones some citrus peel. The flavor is maltysweet, with some caramel and quite a lot of bitterness, pine cones and citrus peel. It’s full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, with a lasting bitter and malty finish. Very nice this one, balanced and tasteful. 150228

Hopfiger, mild süßer Antrunk. Dunkel, minimal getreidig, mittelstarke Bitterkeit. Der Hopfen bleibt konstant, unsüffig, was hier aber nicht wirklich schlimm ist. Herbes Ende. 11/10/10/9/11/10
