This beer to me is in between an ipa and a brown ale or red. It has the strength of a dipa and the lingering hoppy flavor too. It also has a certain sweet maltiness in the initial flavor. It's like a sweet version of an ipa to me, but not syrupy. Very intriguing and worth a try.

Malt forward, definitely a sweet body. No strong alcohol taste initially. Dark amber hue. Smooth mouthfeel with a lingering floral hop aftertaste. Not a huge fan of reds, but this is one that is quite quaffable.

Malty but not much else out of it. It was ok. Enjoyed it much more the first time, but i realize now I favor browns, Porter's and stouts over many reds. If it is a red, I want it sweet. This just isn't.
