Poured a very pretty medium garnet with a fluffy egg shell white head. Nice in the mouth. gripweed57 (2967) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Deep reddish copper color. Large rocky beige head. Fruity malt nose gives way to spicy citrus hops. Spicy dry bitter hops upfront. Some tropical fruit malt, but mostly citrus and resiny hops. Nice body and flavor. Drinks smooth and easy. Quite nice! hfmejias (1297) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured in a reddish shade of amber, nice foamy off white head and lacing. Aroma of resin, citrus fruit and some malts. Tasty beer, bitter, hoppy, nice malts in the background. Very enjoyable beer. bugsizzy (70) - USA - SEP 12, 2014
Loved this beer a couple of years ago. Now, in 2014, not as into it on my second tasting. It tastes to me like a faded IPA with nothing distinctive to replace what's missing. Just a bit muddier from what I remember I guess. But still a solid beer and worth a try. I'll finish the six pack and revise if subsequent tastes change my impression

Bottle. Pours a copper brown with medium tan head. Very malty for an IPA (I guess that’s why it’s a red) and its best quality is the robust malt character. Sweet, but not overly so. Citrusy hops in the finish. Really great beer!

A delicious red IPA. Aroma was pretty good. Perfect mix of sweet malt and citrus hops. Couldn’t detect individual smells but it was fine. Pour was a dark burnt red with a one finger off white head. Taste was delicious. Bursting full of hop flavor and very tasty for such a low ABV beer. Given the red color and the dryness of the beer I thought it was made with rye but don’t see it in the description. Nice dry malty flavor quickly gave way to grapefruit rind, lemon and slight pine. Nice carbonation. Great beer Ron (4258) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle. Nice amber/red hue to this with a little head and lace. Aroma contains some citrus, caramel, and tropical fruit. Flavor is bitter with some lemons, caramel, grapefruit, and mango. A bitter and somewhat sour after taste. arnold931 (1261) - Iowa, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Draft at Bricks. Pours clear copper with nice off white head. Nose is some tropical fruit and some spice. Taste adds some sweetness and some rye spice. Nice different IPA. The spice can wear on you. Thechasm442 (1006) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Fresh bottle poured into a pint glass. The beer pours a clear rusty copper with a solid 2 inches of light tan head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma is orange zest, caramel candy, and oddly enough cookie dough and something spicy...smells like rye. It’s interesting. Ok time to taste. Right off the bad I get hit with an instant piney bitterness and orange/lemon citrus, however there is also a somewhat subdued sweetness that mixes in well. It’s that caramel cookie dough flavor I described that I cannot put a finger on. It’s an interesting mix though, and really does fulfill it’s point of being a seasonal transitional beer. I also pick up some spicy flavors in the finish which I am positive is rye grain. The beer is pretty dry from start to finish, and it leaves a somewhat bitter aftertaste which is followed by more sweetness on the tongue. Overall I like this beer for a late summer/early fall drink. It hits the spot nicely. ESPh (136) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Pours with a thick head and a nice rich red amber color. Sweet, fruity, floral aroma (pleasant). Nice sweet malt taste with almost a delayed bitter finish. Tasty beer.
