Bottle. Red in Color with a three finger head. Aroma and taste is like an average IPA. Not real impressed. RSRIZZO (2034) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2017
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 43°. Color is a deep hazy amber with light carbonation and a thin tight off white head. Aroma is toffee and hops. It has a medium body with a crisp mouthfeel. Flavor jumps in with toffee and malt then a mild bitterness comes in with a peppery hop spice. In the aftertaste the hop spice stands out as the bitterness grows. Overall this is a great brew, they really hit the good points of a Red and an IPA. AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 9, 2017

Clear ruby red body with ivory foam. Candi apple, pit fruit, herbal, caramel aromas. Herbal, tangy fruit, spicy caramel flavors __ good
Deep dark ruby and almost a brownish, deep copper coloured body with a rather large, four to five centimetre tall tan soapy head that takes quite a while to dissipate. Aroma of malt, toffee, earth, grain and a bit of bitterness throughout, but more from the malts than hops, for sure. Medium-bodied; Deep earthy and toffee flavours dominate with some alternative malts, perhaps oats and rye are noticeable, but there is a definite and rather obtuse bitterness from alcohol and pungency throughout. Aftertaste is deep, showing a lot of toasted grain, caramelised sugars and a touch of alcohol near the very end. Overall, a decent enough beer with a lot of pungency and assertive qualities and perhaps stronger than I was thinking it would be, but not mild or timid - pungent and decent throughout. Worth trying if you love IPAs and those with more malts than average, but passable for most. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wine, Cheese & More in Chincoteague, Virginia [Eastern Shore] on 28-May-2017 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 25-August-2017.

Pours clear dark reddish brown with a small off white wisp. Aroma is rich toffee and caramel malts with loads of citrus hops. Taste is just how I like it. Over powering toffee laden malts with citrus and grapefruit hops with light dankness and resinous that sits on the palate. Oroboro24k (27) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 De mooiste (rode) kleur IPA die ik tot nu toe heb gezien. Kraag kleurt mooi mee. Wegens ’vakantie-omstandigheden’ gedronken op een graad of 15. Maar ondanks dat: wat een heerlijk bier! De bitterheid blijft lang in de mond achter. Een traktatie! jbethea (71) - Miami, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2017 Biscuit covered in honey n brown sugar. Hazy auburn red brown with thin cream sustaining head. Super fresh tangy floral finish.

12oz bottle @ home. Pours a beautiful deep reddish-amber with a frothy off-white head, excellent retention and lacing. Lots of citrusy, grapefruity hops aroma. Flavors are totally hoppy, pine resin, caramel malt. Medium bodied with a candied, bitter finish. Excellent IPA, Stone Hops Company does it again. craftbeersweden (723) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2017
