Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. No freshness date? SOB 2014.

A: really nice golden amber with about 2" of head with some lacing. Didn't last a real long time.

S: hints of citrus, but mostly hops. Not strongly piney.

T: not nearly as complex as I anticipated. Some grapefruit and hops and that's about it.

M: pretty light bodied with moderate carbonation. Refreshing, but not my ideal IPA.

O: Glad to have tried this. I love supporting the small breweries and thanks to a friend that picked this up for me on trade. But, not overly impressed. I'll stick with my PNW IPA's. (589 characters)

Appearance: Bright red with tan lacing and foam. I definitely did not expect a Red IPA.

Smell: Strong pine and grapefruit.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Grapefruit with a cookie backing. Very yeasty as well, which gives it an excellent mouthfeel.

Overall Drinkability: An IPA that Erik the Red would be proud of. (302 characters)
