look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

pours a dark amber. smells and taste both have a heavy malt presence. Not my preference for an IPA but this is fringe IPA. taste is roasted malt , slight pine, mild tobacco. abv is hidden well. Like the girl in highschool that you weren't attracted to but hooked up with 2 dozen times. you're more than likely drinking it in the confines of your home and not out in public. its not a prom date. but you'll look back when your older and think fondly of it as a successful conquest.

16 OZ can, dated as "canned on 6/17/15", which puts it at exactly 3 months old. Pours a light amber color, with a lot of head that is beige. Standard hoppy aroma: good. Very nicely balanced flavor: can taste the both the malt and the hops, with a little alcohol burn as it goes down.

I really enjoyed this beer. I could hardly tell it had an ABV of 8.7, which made it very drinkable. I bought this as a single (for $1.50), and, if the price is right, I would be happy to buy it and drink it again.

G'Knight pours to a giant, lingering off-white head (pour carefully) on a clear, sparkling body that is just shy of amber-brown. It has a nice strong nose: predominately grapefruit and juicy pineapple with lesser amounts of pine and floral notes, and hints of alcohol and bready malt. Up front, the palate is mostly pineapple and bitter citrus; the slightly-sweet, lightly-roasted biscuity malt backbone shows through mid-palate, and a resinous pine bitterness and significant alcohol notes carry the back end to a flavorful, balanced finish: biscuity malt and clinging piney bitterness. The bitterness is strong, as expected for the style; the linger is style-moderate. Mouthfeel is appropriate for the medium body, and the texture is creamy, deliciously sticky and peppery from some very fizzy carbonation. This is a tasty, well-balanced Imperial IPA that lets you know that it has a high ABV.

A-Dark amber with a slightly off white head that sticks around when poured.

S-citrusy hops lead on the nose and are followed by a floral sweetness. Maltiness if noticeable, but not overwhelming.

T-bright but slightly resiny. citrus hops lead perfectly into malty sweetness. A great balance is acheived in this beer. The alcohol is hidden well, and leaves tropical notes of coconut (maybe just me) on the tongue. Finishes smoothly and not too bitter-a welcomed relief for many imperial IPA's.

M- Carbonation is near perfect. Body is full, but still drinkable.

O-Another knockout from Oskar Blues. Seems like everything they touch is gold. I would compare this to Sixpoint's Resin. Greatly enjoyed this beer. Only complaint i have is that the whole "Red' part seems redundant. This is an IPA through and through, with malts taking a backseat to the hops.

L - does look red, frothy head
S - some crisp smell presumably from the malts
T - Tastes like it smells, a little lingering flavor
F - kind of syrupy on the tounge
O - Not enough hops, but stoked I'm the first to review, as always cans are a plus.
