Decent red IPA. Piney, caramel, and a crunchy bite. Not mind blowing but solid.

When I first saw this beer I thought, "oh joy, another red IPA," and I expected it to be like most: malty, sweet, harshly bitter, muddled, and boring. What I found surprised me, though. This beer is well made and nicely balanced. Its malt side is reminiscent of fresh baked bread, light toast, and a hint of Sugar Daddy-like sweetness, and its complemented well by rich and green hop flavors of grass, flowers, pine, and herbs. It starts off full and creamy, and it finishes dry not cloying like many red IPAs out there. Its a solid beer, even though the style currently isnt in fashion.

malrubius (2754) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Can from Brewtopia. Reddish clear with lasting head and lace. Light caramel spice herb aroma with a touch of citrus. Toasted caramel sweetness herbal long finish. Medium body. Just okay, but good enough for me to forget I was rating it.

Cybercat (5459) - Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Can. Pours clear sepia with a very thick buff head. Aroma presents firm woody hop and toasted malt notes. Flavor is seriously hoppy, crisp and woody, a little malty, a bit of citrus. Mouthfeel delivers nice body, decent fizz, and a woody and somewhat bitter finish. Well played indeed!

Redish bronze pour, finger of off white cap. Nose is bread and earthy hops. Bitter. Middle is doughy malt, caramel, hop flowers. Finish coates the tongue with bitterness. Good.
