3.33/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours black with a creamy white head that thins and lasts, some lacing sticks.

The smell is of dark, slightly roasted maltiness - towards chocolate with some citric notes.

The taste is of dark maltiness with a touch of citrus. Dryish finish.

Medium-bodied, smooth.

Interesting attempt, though to have "India" in the name is very misleading - malt and hop balance of an APA at best. Both malt and hop flavors are rather mild, to boot. "Drinkable", and nothing particularly "off", with some hops mixing in with the dark malt to give it something of a uniqueness, but...rather bland and uninteresting as a whole, IMO.

Pours a dark brown color, nice carbonation, nice little one-finger creamy tan head, which left some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy with some malt tones, very slight citrus, with some caramel. Medium body. Drinkable, this is a different take on a IPA, crazy.

Hoorah! Finally a RedRock that is worth the time it takes to drink it.

Pours a wonderful black with a hint of copper when held to the light. Good layer of head wtih nice lacing. Definitely can smell the hops. The taste was good with fresh hops hitting first but there is a good malt balance here.

Definitely recommend this one.
