3.75/5 rDev -5.3%
A - bottled on 6/7/2013. Poured a dark copper color, with a 1 inch foam head.
S - smell is of faint Amarillo hops and some pine action.
T - taste is of hops, although not overly hoppy, a nice tasting hoppy red amber. I would call it the poor mans Nugget Nectar.
M - mouthfeel is nice.
O - a solid hoppy red amber ale. When fresh (8 weeks or less after bottling) its good.

Chose this beer because I was running out of IPAs to try and one of my friends had me try G'Knight by Oskar Blues the other night. So I figured I'd try a few other Red IPAs, starting with this one...
Appearance - copper/deep amber color that's red at the edges if you hold it up to the light, with a thick beige head that sticks around and dissipates down to a thin sheet of healthy looking small bubbles. The carbonation is light.
Smell - heavy caramel, barley, some dark fruits (prunes), some pine/citrus/lemon peel from the hops, a little sweeter and slightly less bitter hoppiness than the big imperial ipas that are my favorites (Hop Slam, Ruination, Hoptimum...) I like it.
Taste -sweet taste at first w caramel, grapefruit and prunes/figs, then the bitter hops start to come in with pine, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon peel,
Body - medium bodied with a sticky finish, leaves a residue of hop bitterness in your mouth
Overall - I really liked this beer, I look forward to trying more like this.
