Picked this up in Roanoke over the weekend,good to see a new brewery in an area where you wouldn't think one would be.Poured into a nonic a deep bronze color with a tight formed half finger white head atop that settled nicely.Aromas have a hopped up red element to them with a big caramel malt base along with a hint of brown sugar then a big shot of citric hops to carry over into the finish.The flavors are spot on...for a hoppy big red wich I love.Caramel and toffee malt flavors with citric and resiny hops hitting hard,the alcohol gives off mild sugary-like sweetness.The can does say IPA but I think the Red Clay part in the name says something,a very good hoppy IPA/amber here.

Poured from can to imperial pint
A- pours a clear and deep amber color with some ruby hue, two-finger creamy off-white head retains long after the pour, leaving a nice presentation
S- sweet bready malt with some caramel aromas, herbal & earthy hops with some woodsy notes
T- caramel malty sweetness with a big nutty backbone, bready, herbal and fruity hops on a dry finish
M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish
O- this is so malty that it drinks like an amber ale, rather than an ipa. Still very drinkable though

A: Great red color, much like the dirt in that area of VA. Thick head, good lacing
S: Cutting hop aroma, without pinpointing one particular hop variety. Would fall in the piney category. Overtones of grains and sweetness hit my nose as well.
T: Nicely bitter but not with a distinction of hops. I would assume big alpha acid hops were used to drive the bitterness up without overriding the malt flavor. Did not get the classic west coast IPA citrus bomb, but way bitter, not palate-wrecker bitter, but kepy me wanting more. Nice balance.
M: Thinly thick. Just how an IPA should be, hard hitting up front, and smooth finishing.

Yes, another canned beer courtesy of the creator of the canquest, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, some pine. Taste is well balanced piney hops and caramel malts, light bitterness, highly drinkable. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall leaves me wanting another.
