Another very fine offering from Eric at Hollister! This is an interesting mix of an IPA and Red. It's heavy on the hops, but backed by a strong maltiness. He did a great job at combining the two to make a very flavorful and smoother than expected brew.
A - Nice healthy looking beer. Red body with a bubbly, foamy head.
S - Hops, hops, hops!
T - Strong hop flavor that isn't overwhelmingly bitter because it's backed by strong malts. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Great mix!
M - Mixed bitterness and sweetness help cover the tastebuds. Bubbly and alive.
D - That smooth mix of the hops and malts I've mentioned make this one drinkable beer!

I love this beer, and the reason Grumpy named it 2:01 IRA. The IRA is easy to figure out, it's a hoppy red ale... but the 2:01 is for a regular customer who would always show up @ 2:01 when happy hour started and order the highest gravity beer. I am not sure they are brewing this one any more, last time I was in they had a different Imperial Red.

I had this on tap tonight, it came out with a nice reddish body under an off white head. The nose was dominated by citrus/piney hops and a little sweet malt. If there was a little more malt, I think this could be an excellent beer, it is good but the malt doesn't back up the big hop flavor. The citrus and piney hops dominate and there is a caramel malt background that can't quite keep up with the hops.

Draught at the brewpub. Dark red-brown color with a beige head that leaves a sticky lacing. Citric hoppy aroma with sweet underlying malts that have caramel and toffee. The flavor has plenty of grapefruit and pine hoppiness, with a firm caramel and caramelized sugar maltiness. Full bodied and rich. Clean and hoppy. Big on flavor, and quite balanced with the added malt complexity. Really nice.
