3.71/5 rDev -1.9%
Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.
Appearance: rich amber-orange hue with a light haze and moderate effervescence. Head is a finger of pillowy ivory foam with good retention and a nice lace left on the glass. Quite attractive.
Smell: lightly toasty/caramelly malt character; it's redolent of an amber ale. Hops are earthy and herbal with a little bit of citrus character to them. "Red IPA" is right on for what they are going for here. It's not bad.
Taste: caramelly malt with a citrusy, somewhat piney hop character and plenty of bitterness. It's got the right balance for an IPA; pretty good!
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a decent creaminess for an IPA. Not bad.
Overall: this is a pretty good beer, though I usually shy away from reds/ambers. They've done a good job of getting that toasty/caramelly red character without going too far into the biscuit range of the spectrum -- something I can definitely support.

12 oz can served in a wine goblet.
Pours a very reddish and dark color for an IPA, but then this seems to be a Red IPA.
Aroma: herbal and slightly earthy hops.
Flavor: strong and pungent hops. Reported IBU=70 seems about right.
Feel: medium+ body; good medium carbonation.
O: A well crafted Red IPA.

A: a little hazy; burnt orange; with a fairly aggressive pour, a 3 finger egg shell head; good retention; moderate lacing;
S: mostly pine with a little caramel malt;
T: caramel malt is front and center; the finish adds grapefruit rind and bitterness that builds;
M; medium bodied; prickly carbonation;
O: I wish the hops were more predominant;

My wife picked up a bomber of this for me to share with our friends. Poured into various glasses, it's a slightly hazy, reddish-copper color with a half-inch white head. Aroma is malty with a floral and citrus hop character. This is a fairly viscous full-bodied malty beer with adequate bitterness and some floral and citrus notes. Overall, a slight bit heavy for the style, but still a very enjoyable malty beverage.
