A: Dark brown and red body with a fairly thick white head that leaves good lacing rings.
S: Huge huge bold hop aroma! It smells like an opened hop bag! Extremely stoked about the smell of this beer. I don't even want to drink it, just sit here and smell it. There's a strong resinous scent. It's wonderful.
T: Strong citrus flavor, like grapefruit rind without a ton of bitterness. Bitterness is actually fairly low. A bit of cedar in the background. Not much in the malt side of the house, but excellent none-the-less.
M: The mouthfeel is great. It has just enough bitterness to keep you from chugging the beer, but is light enough to keep it from feeling thick or saturated.
O: Do you love hops? You will love this beer. I only wish there was a way to find out when this beer was brewed. I'm drinking it on the East Coast and it was brewed on the West Coast but it tastes so fresh it is crazy. It's very delicious and I highly recommend drinking it.

This American Amber or Red Ale, is a interesting combination of beers styles that i approve of, though i am not a beer chemist, it sparked me to call a friend of mine who is, to have them explain this flavor to me. It is defiantly better then i thought it would be, although I had no idea what to expect from a 'red ipa' i was impressed with Sierra Nevada's Flipside. Its smokey dark appearance was a interesting factor, but its smell, was the sort of beer I wish they would bottle and smell as an AXE body spray. The mouth feel and taste where both outstanding in my opinion and I did really like this beer.
