Bomber poured into a nonic pint glass. Several shades beyond the advertised "red IPA" on the label, it's a handsome beverage topped by a fat light tan head with impressive staying power. Plentiful lacing as well; we're off to a good start here.

Batch # 1 on the label. No idea what that means, but perhaps it's got a little age on it. There aren't really any notions an IPA, red or otherwise. It's a solid American amber, no doubt, though. Richly sweet nose, kinda like a cross between a Sugar Daddy and a Bit o' Honey with toasted background notes. The flavor starts the same up front, but an earthy bite soon asserts itself. Again, not sure of the freshness here, but the multilayered malt profile is pretty tasty. Not much going on in the finish,though.
