On tap:
A rusty red, clear save for the coloring. Barely rusted white head lasts nicely and provides some lacing, mainly thanks to the thick color.

A light nose, I get more of the amber malt, but also a light floral note, maybe a hint of honey. Nice, but not very strong.

Taste nicely shows the red malts, which provide a nice smooth feel. Bitterness is not high, but has a grassy aspect as well as a very light citrus aspect. Not getting much of the claimed Sorachi hop, specifically - though it is one of four.

Lightly hop-leaning, which for a red/amber works for me.

Poured a copper body with two finger head that left lace ring down glass entire time I drank beer. Earth, dirt, dry are the adjectives that I believe adequately describe the hops, not so much citric, and there is a smidge of bready, caramel malts in there as well. Medium bodied, slightly dry, crisp finish, a bit of caramel malt adds touch of sweetness that complements an earthy, dirty, dry citric hop bite that is pleasant. The beer is well-balanced in terms of being a slightly sweet hopped-up beer and everything works together for a pleasant beer.

Truly solid Red IPA. hard to get a great red ipa and this one is the real deal. Only available on draft and it is awesome! I've tried a lot of red IPAs, this one hands down my favorite.
