Although listed as a red ale, Cardinal Sin refers to itself as a "Red IPA", which to me is just a red ale with hops. I was recommended this beer by the couple who were drinking next to me at the brewery. On to the beer:
Dark red colored, and topped with decent head retention. The aroma is enough to get my attention, with its mix of fresh pine and vague fruits. To taste, tropical fruits starts the beer off on the right foot. Then comes the hops. As a curveball, I get lemon peel. For me, there's enough to be happy about despite a few edges which some sanding couldn't hurt. While I didn't have a chance to try the brewery's other three IPA's, Cardinal Sin is certainly one way to get your hops.
