3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very average IPA, especially from the great brewers at Weyerbacher. I think this offering missed the mark a bit. The beer poured a deep and dark amber color with a decent off-white head. The head left a nice amount of lacing around the edges of the glass. The nose was fairly balanced, but contained a bit too much toasted malt for my liking in an IPA. The maltiness carried over into the body, overpowering the hops a little too much. The combination of the two styles was a good idea, but not necessarily pulled off very well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Craft. Ruby chestnut color with off-khaki head. Nose is bready caramel malt, resiny hops, vinous fruit, peppery. Tastes as it smells, hoppy, resiny, with bready caramel malt, and although this one is not Green Flash Hop Head Red, I feel that it is quite under-rated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber in color with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, bread, and faint hops. Fairly sweet with not nearly enough hop presence for an IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy reddish-mahogany with a small off-white head.
The aroma is very malt forward. Lots of roasted malts, earthy, and a slight Belgian yeast quality. Not as bready as I would have liked.
The taste again is dominated by the malts. Notes of chocolate, a slight breadiness, some dark fruits and minimal bitterness. Doesn’t really stand out, but at the same time it is very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Capone’s Thursday lunch with Caruso. Poured a deep reddish/amber body with a foamy light beige head. Aroma of caramel malt, light toffee. Fuller body with almost a syrupy mouthfeel and average to slightly strong carbonation. Flavor of toast, grains, amber malts, caramel. This was a bit more malt forward than I was expecting with a name like India Red.

Clear deep amber/reddish pour light sticky lacing thin layer of off white head ... aroma is earthy and of caramel malts, biscuity malts and a slight bit of citrusy hops come through .... taste is of biscuity, and caramel malts, earthy and citrusy hops with a subtle bitter hop bite .... caramel malt is on the chewy side .... finishes malty with a slight dry lingering bitter bite .... very simple and nothing special
