Surprisingly good find,when added to a short 6'er of Hop Devil at the local Stop+Shop market.
This "Wagon" found a smooth path between hops and malts,and many flavors emerged through its cloudy consistency.
"Red" rates on the green side of the beer rating divide,is very drinkable,add it to the roster at the beach,or wherever...

I enjoyed this from and IPA glass by DFH bottle purchased from half time.

the color is dark amber with good clarity and thick tan off white head with fine bead. The lace creates a film and carbonation rises quickly from the nucleation site in the glass. The smell has a nice citrus aroma of west coast hops with light sweet malt and hint of yeast ester accenting. The feel is moderately bitter with a tangy hop texture and slight malt sweetness with moderate carbonation and bitterness increasing in the dry finish.

The flavor has a slightly orange rind taste with subtle caramel from the malt and good bitter tangerine accent with some mild grassy tinges and light lemon zest and toasted malt flavor. the alcohol is mild in the mostly bitter dry finish. Overall this is a solid IPA, very drinkable but is pretty familiar with citrus and bitterness dominant in the taste.

This is a pretty mundane beer. The malt is so high and the hop influence seeking so low that I want to say it's striking me more like an English ipa than an American one. Eh. It's just not bringing anything memorable or interesting, as far as I'm concerned. Nice to try something from a new brewery, but this is a one and done for me.

Served in a pint glass at local Irish pub sort of place by a guy named Todd, who made a point of remembering my name as I left. Nice touch even if it felt a little false since we didn't exchange more than a few perfunctory words. Amber color, slight head, and a very little lacing (lame lacing). The first of the twi I drank was less impressive than the second, whose head stood up better than the first, and whose lacing was even better. Go figure. Slight hoppiness in the nose. Mouthfeel was watery. Ok, and the only IPA on tap. About to enjoy an Old Rasputin. Let's see.
