4/5  rDev n/a

The IPA from Redwood Curtain is an excellent brew. Purchased in a growler and poured into a pint glass.

The beer has a light aroma of hops and alcohol, a nice gentle scent. Appealing.

The beer pours a deep rich amber. Initially a frothy head (perhaps still agitated from the ride home) which gives way to a hint of foam and nice lace pattern on the glass.

The taste is a compelling combo of bitter and rich. There is a very attractive smoked flavor to this drink. The citrus west-coast-hop flavor is here, but there is more in this beer. Some rich enhancement that I can't quite place. There isn't much flavor left after the sip, it is quite drinkable.

6.4 is a notable alcohol potency. I think you get more silly quicker with this particular beer.

Recommended with a crowd of people around and some loud music playing. (842 characters)

4.17/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours the rich amber of unfiltered apple juice, with a creamy white lacy head.

F: The aroma is of sweet biscuity malts and powerful citrus, specifically grapefruit and lemon.

M: Medium body w/ full, smooth, dry mouthfeel.

T: Initially dry and briefly peppery up front, with biscuity malts which give way to citrusy hops reminiscent of lemon hard candy - slightly sweet and lingering. Nice bitter hop oil finish. Comes across (to me) as hoppier than its 50 IBUs would indicate, but is well-balanced and quite drinkable.

Although less complex than some of RC's other offerings, this is a self-assured, delicious IPA that l'll return for again and again. (658 characters)

Pours a bright and hazy gold color with a small white head.

Aromas are pretty nice. Biscuit like malts, cream, and a mix of hops, lemon zest, grapefruit, and hints of pine.

Taste is dry up front, biscuit like malts, and some caramel cream sweetness. Finish is hoppy, but not overly so, mostly bitter lemons and grapefruits.

Mouthfeel is full, smooth, and quite dry.

Overall this is a nice take on the style. Balanced, and not overly bitter, I could easily have more than one of these. Well done Redwood Curtain, I definitely prefer this to your imperial gold. (563 characters)
