12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, golden-copper body with a medium-small, whitish head that settles to a thin film. Light lacing.

Smell: Fruity-scented hops, a little orange, a little melon rind, a little basic pear overlaying a thin malt scaffolding and a little burst of earthy herbaceousness.

Taste: Blended wheat and pale maltiness, thin edge of graininess. Lightly sweet. Citrus, melon, pear hops notes, additionally earthy, grassy. Medium-plus bitterness; it's not altogether rough on the palate, but, the malts are not nearly hearty enough to hold what's there back. Thinnish finish with lingering hop flavor and (reasonably light) bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: An easy drinking dose of hops.

From a bottle shared by a friend of mine visiting me. Sampled on July 4, 2014.

The pour is cloudy pale yellow with a modest little head.

The floral hops on the nose tend to remind me of grapefruit. Bitterness is evident.

Medium body.

Like the aroma the taste has a kind of mild malty character at first but it flourishes into a fruity and bitter bite at the end. Sessionable. Not overly bitter but enough to make me remember.

A single picked up at Total Wine Dunwoody

A - Bronze with no clarity, no head or lace

S - Huge bitter hop aroma! Definitely was dry hopped. An IPA thats for sure.

T - Like the aroma, it has a big bitter taste but well balanced too. Tough to do for a session brew. Tasty as hell!

M - The only place I can knock this brew is that it is kinda flat. Not much carbonation going on.

O - As good of a session IPA that I have ever had. I could drink this all day long. Extreme taste to satisfy hop heads but still just 4.2%. Red Brick is really doing great stuff lately. New and improved!

This is a damn tasty session IPA - just picked up a bottle in Statesville, NC.

Pours a nicely light golden shade with a minimal head and a bit of lacing. It could use a little more carbonation - but it's nicely bittered, not a floral IPA. I would drink this all day long. I've had their Beard Envy release a number of times now - squirreled away a four pack for later. I thought they were a new brewery... then talked to their brewer at the Hickory Hops Festival, they've been at it for something like 20 years! Good session IPA.
