A darker IPA with a very thin head that turned to nothing but a few suds. Great pine and floral smell. Has some sweet roasted malt taste, even some burnt sugar, followed but spicy, floral, but not some much bitter hop notes. Easy to drink, doesn't over whelm the pallet. I actually find it quite mellow, like an extra floral pale ale.

famous for a reason,but really the first of its kind... a big bold merger of a red ale and an ipa. pours redish with plenty of head, smells like an ipa, but add some malty sweetness a la american red/amber ale. makes for a really nicely balanced flavor profile with the hops still dominant. bitter but not brital finish. medium body and good carbonation make it plenty drinkable. goes great with grilled chicken, and gets a nice warm buzz on

Pours a pale amber with a mountain of off white, dense, foamy head that has great retention. The nose has floral, piny hop aromas as well as some some bready, malty notes. The taste is bready, biscuity, doughy up front with some bitter, piny, pineapple-like, citrusy hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, well carbonated, and very smooth.

The flavor profile here is complex and intense. The hops reach every spectrum and the malt is complimentary and reaching in its own right. Definitely worth checking out.
