Don't let the Beeradvocate clasification or the appearance fool you. This is basically a red colored IPA. It may have marginally more malts than average, nonetheless, this is a hop forward beer with all of the hop aroma and flavor of a typical American IPA, or at least a hoppy APA. The quality is not typical but rather clearly above average in virtually all respects. Recommended!

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery tasting room. Pretty pretty good for the style. A very good hoppy nose. Yellow body surprisingly. Like an IPA with a good malt, and citrus edge. A little acidic. Like a 1.5X IPA in bitterness with malt backing. Above average mouthfeel.

64 oz. growler. Haven’t had this in years. Deep amber. Big off-white head. Smells of amber malts. Rye. Grapefruit hops. Tastes hoppier than it smells. Also sweeter than it smells. Grapefruit hops. Sweet caramel malts. Strong spicy rye finish. Medium to medium heavy. Creamy body. Really nice with an excellent rye flavor.
