12oz can into a pint glass. canned 1/8/18, so 3 1/2 months old.

very nice clear reddish amber body. big foamy off white head leaving excellent thick lacing.

clean biscuity malt aroma.

unfortunately, the hops seem to have faded. there is a nice enough sweet malty taste with the faintest hop bite at the end. pleasant drink, but not as balanced as I'd hoped for.

mouth is close to full, finish is a sweet wash and faint bitterness.

overall, though a nice enough drink, this one was a bit of a letdown. was hoping for a bit ore of a hop oomph.

I enjoyed this! Maybe the best red ipa to date for me. On the sweeter side.

subtle haze and firm head. very tasty double IPA has become a favorite with not too sweet upfront and good mouthfeel

Slightly hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma has toasted malt, light caramel and resiny hops. Taste is also resiny, piney with intense woody sap notes but not too bitter, the malt keeps everything in balance. Medium body and carbonation. ABV is hidden quite well, a nice resiny amber ale.
