12oz bottle into snifter.
A: Pours a deep clear mahogany color with a greasy off white head that faded to a minimal film.
S: Grapefruit and citrus hops dominate. Very hoppy. Smells like a standard ipa without the red.
T: Follows the nose with tons of citrus hops and balancing caramel. Bready malt, juicy tropical fruit hops, a hint of mint come through. The finish is sweet, and I get caramel lightly bitter aftertaste. Slight bubblegum as well, and fresh greasy hop oil.
M: Medium full body, oily fresh greasy slick mouthfeel, normal smooth carbonation.
O: Excellent red ipa. Super hoppy and not overly malty. Very good hop profile.
Serving type: bottle
