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. (861 characters)

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. (247 characters)
