I am a huge fan of red IPAs. Lagunitas Lucky 13 was my all time favorite (now discontinued although I have no idea how they could have dc'd such an amazing red IPA), followed by Green Flash Hop Head Red, Sam Adams Tazman, and Sierra Nevada Flipside ans Celebration. I just tried Hop the RIPA for the second time and it's time to put this one in its grave.
The first time we tried it, the second we flipped the top off foam erupted out of the top - and it kept going... We lost so much of the beer itself because the foam never stopped. One year later, forgetting we had already tried and nixed this beer, we bought it again. And sure enough - the foam poured out the second we opened the bottle, there came the foam. We actually had to crush some GasX into the bottle to halt the foam! What a waste of what could have been a good beer. Don't waste your money.
