Poured into a pilsner glass, dark amber, red tint as per the name.
Smell was amazing, very concentrated hops, apples, sweet syrupy smell. I was looking forward to tasting it.
Taste was traditional sierra nevada trademark taste. Loads of hops, with a nice rye, almost woody taste to it. The taste, as a whole, is considerably earthy.
Mouthfeel is thin, with a nice bitter aftertaste as per many IPA's.
Like many of SIerra Nevada's brewings, the foundation of the beer is practically the same with minor changes. My only concern is if the changes are enough to warrant a whole new brand of beer. The fruits are definitely prevalent but the similarity is uncanny.
