Intense RIPA (Red/Amber IPA) pours a deep Amber with a beige foamy receding head and fragrant floral spice with notes of pine and Grapefruit with B I G bitter hops. Notes of grapefruit PEEL and dry “red” and bold bitter American IPA Red 70 IBU (taste like 80) and 7% ABV. B I G aftertaste with bold bitter hops.

“...rich toasted malts & bone dry hop bite with a sooth warm finish. “

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a snifter.

A - Pours a deep red, thick off-white head.

S Caramel, rye spice, and pine.

T - Opens up with a sweet, caramelly malt profile. Crunchy, spicy rye notes act as a bridge to a piney, intensely floral hop profile. The hops dominate in the end, leaving quite a bit of residual bitterness.

M - Just enough carbonation, medium body.

O - Very solid, interesting red ale. With the ABV and hops I want a little more from the malts but a standout red otherwise.
