Sumptuous. Witty. Unforgiving. Tempting. Wicked.
I pour my test beers NOT into snifters, but rather 24oz schupper mugs.
I have always loved red IPAs. Those of you touting this as a barley wine, get a new hobby.
I had a rough day at work. My wife tells me rhe kids are working tonight, let's have a great meal with great drinks. I respond, "ok!"
We head to Whole Foods for, what else, dry-aged steaks and some premium beer.
After the steaks and beets (yes, we love beets) are in the basket, it's BEER AISLE TIME!!
Hmmmm, local beers, sour beers (yukk), i see a pink can with PIGS on the label. This is me!! But, at 12.99 a sixer, i tell my wife I'll go with the old stand-by, and quite a delicious beer, Sam Adams Cherry Wheat (i love cherry anything). My wife STOPS ME IN MY TRACKS. "If you're going to overspend 9.99 on cherry wheat, you may as well get the pig cans for 12.99!! God, I love my wife!!!
At home, my wife has her Chardonnay poured, now it's time for the pigs to squeal.
Great pour. Nice deep red/orange.
Aroma of deep tropical fruits.
This, gentlemen, and ladies, is the epitome of red IPAs everywhere.
Deep piney flavors, but not like you are chewing on pine tree bark!
Alcohol is warming, but subtle enough TO LURE YOU INTO A 24 OUNCER!!!
This is a MUST TRY red IPA. Please do so and let us know.

Can at home. Pours hazy medium amber with pillowy white head. Sharp hoppy aroma with rich malt background. Notes of caramel, toffee, grapefruit. Opens with strong malt profile, which balances well against the resin-y hop bitterness. Malt character is rich and somewhat toasty, with subtle dark, sweet fruit. Full body and luxurious mouthfeel. Very pleasing, warming finish with notes of citrus. All in all, quite excellent. ttoadee (1763) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2018
Solid amber pour, decent off white cap. Nose is surprisingly restrained caramel and light wood. Middle is chewey carmel, currants, wood, alcohil, and subtle floral hops. Finish is bittersweet, warm, and satisfying. Gonna buy one and lay it down. tompete (380) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2018
Pours a clear reddish brown with a fine thick beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and noble hops spicy. Flavour super rich and mouth coating medium roasted grains with a long lasting and strongly bitter finish. k0mpsa (3314) - Tuusula, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2018
Bottle. Dark orange color, white head. Aroma has caramel malty notes, some hops, some honey notes. Nice balanced taste, some malty notes, hops. Actually pretty nice.

Flaska från SB som stått ca ett år, delad med Lilja. Citrusstram bw med fina fudge- och kolasmaker. Men känns inte riktigt pigg, torrhumlingen har mest lämnat beska efter sig och kropp känns aningen platt. Jämfört med bigfoot som åldras väl håller den inte. Men helt ok iaf. chinchill (5538) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2018
Refrigerated 2 oz can with a canning date of March 2017.
Pours with a lightly hazed, reddish copper body and a decent white head. Moderate lacing.
Herbal and fruity hop notes dominate the aroma. The flavor follows, but with substantial caramel malt and low bitterness given the aroma. Moderate bitterness for style. Lasting fruity hop flavor.
Medium+ body and lively carbonation.
Overall: near juicy; easy drinking for style. zoucrew102 (2421) - - DEC 10, 2017
Can. Grapefruit citrus hop aroma with notes of caramel malt, floral hops and some dark fruit pours copper colored with a large tan was that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with grapefruit and floral hop flavors. Finishes very dry with caramel malt and dark fruit sweetness as well as the slightest hint of booze. Really nice.

Boks 355ml. Delt med Richard og Rune på Agenturet 28 Okt 17. Aprikosfarget. Filmskum. Litt lacing. Søt fruktaroma. Smaken tørket aprikos. Fyldig. Tørr ettersmak. Utmerket øl. Rune (14253) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2017
355ml can kindly shared by Finn at Agenturet Øl og Vinbar. Crocheted lacing from a patchy off-white head. Hazy orange coloured body with a reddish tint. Inviting smell of apricot and juicy malts. Well blended taste of red orange, apricot and earthy malts with caramel sweetness beneath. Bittersweet long tail. Solid stuff. Nice. (Tromsø 28.10.2017).
