Notes/Commercial Description:
Crafted from a heady blend of English & domestic style malts, combined with a bodacious infusion of Pacific Northwest hops, Big Red is a sinfully delicious session brew. Big Red's malt backbone lends a smoothness and balances the impressive hoppy tones added through the kettle & dry hopping process. Its citrus aroma, brilliant medium-copper color, and long standing foam provide a most satisfying sensory impression. Not astringent or sweet, Big Red Beaver is an IPA you can enjoy day or night. After one taste you're sure to say "bottoms up".

12 oz. bottle.

Robust amber-orange with some floaties. Tall, rocky, whipped head. Very nice lacing. Nose of caramel and fruit malts (definitely some crystal malt in here). Floral, piny, and citrusy hop aromas.

Slightly astringent grain that soon gives way to herbal, floral, minty hop bitterness. Fruity malt sweetness fills in. Toasted caramel edge. Moderate body with a slightly fizzy feel. Not bad, but plenty forgettable.

Easy drinking IPA. Best sessionable IPA in my opinion, taste like a better Harpoon IPA to me. Little smokey, little spicy, little hoppy, little bitter. Not overwhelmingly hoppy. I've had it on draft and in the bottle, it's pretty heady with good flavor.

Serving type: on-tap

I always love to try the new stuff I see at my local packie. The Beaver Beers caught my eye.

Nice reddish brown color, offwhite head.

Aroma is mild for an IPA, but I don’t need a big bold IPA all the time. An even malt-hop profile in there. Rich.

Taste again, is mild, but definitely has that IPA character. Graininess is right there, and followed by a nice hop finish.

This doesn’t blow my taste buds away, and it doesn’t need to. It is a great, drinkable America IPA. ABV isn’t astronomical either. Another plus for me.
