I really like the malt in Red IPAs. It's like a tart caramel, almost cherryish. Then toss in the West Coast
citrus hops up front, and you have a winner. This style needs its own category, and Nosferatu
is a leader in it's class...

Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit

Appearance (4.5): A beautiful amber color with a two finger tan head

Smell (4): Caramel malts and pine hops

Taste (3.75): Toasted caramel malts upfront that fades into earthy and citrus hop notes

Mouthfeel (4): Medium body and a bit lighter than the abv suggests; Bitterness is spot on.

Overall (4): Although good, nothing extraordinary about this one. I do feel GL produce some of the better American interpretations of German beers however. I enjoy just about every beer put out by these guys, but this is far from my favorites from them.
