This is my first Red Ale so nothing to compare it to except all the other brews I have enjoyed here in the PNW. The Aroma popped right out of the bottle and the color is an interesting hazy "red"? Just taste differently good to me. great start, the body holds up well and finishes well. My next three buys will be red ales so I can learn a bit more about these brews,

I bought a bottle of IRA in a bottle shop. 1 pint .9 ounces. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours an amber gold color, not sure I would call it red, with a bit of chill haze. Thick creamy white head.

Smell is a faint fruity citrus aroma.

Taste is a sweet bread flavor up front, with a mild bitter citrus finish, with a dry bitter after taste.

Mouthfeel is light in body, crisp and clean.

Overall a pretty good brew. I would have it again, even though I am not crazy about the size of the bottle.

Pours a hazy red with a big off white head and very fine lacing.
Smells of floral hops and grains. Slight pine aroma also.
Tastes of lightly sweet malt and plenty of piney fruity hops. Plenty of depth to the flavors.
Full bodied with good level of carbonation. So well balanced that the finish is moderately bitter.
Overall a fine beer and even better on tap.
