A Growler picked up in Atlanta June, 2014

A - Deep amber, with a 1 finger of tan head, and tons of lacing left on the glass. Slight clarity.

S - Huge citrusy hop aroma, slightly sweet malting. Brown sugar. Smells awesome

T - A hoppy red IPA just like the smell suggests. Well balanced, all around goodness. Sweet finish and lots of citrus and grapefruit hops.

M - Medium carbonation and oily slick taste

O - An awesome Red IPA. Bell's nails it. Again. Try this if you can find it! I don't think they bottled it so draft only.

Don't let the Beeradvocate clasification or the appearance fool you. This is basically a red colored IPA. It may have marginally more malts than average, nonetheless, this is a hop forward beer with all of the hop aroma and flavor of a typical American IPA, or at least a hoppy APA. The quality is not typical but rather clearly above average in virtually all respects. Recommended!

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery tasting room. Pretty pretty good for the style. A very good hoppy nose. Yellow body surprisingly. Like an IPA with a good malt, and citrus edge. A little acidic. Like a 1.5X IPA in bitterness with malt backing. Above average mouthfeel.

64 oz. growler. Haven’t had this in years. Deep amber. Big off-white head. Smells of amber malts. Rye. Grapefruit hops. Tastes hoppier than it smells. Also sweeter than it smells. Grapefruit hops. Sweet caramel malts. Strong spicy rye finish. Medium to medium heavy. Creamy body. Really nice with an excellent rye flavor.
