This Red IPA has 7.6% ABV and 74 IBUs.

Look-It pours a mildly hazy appearance with a brownish-red copper color that almost looks like a crème soda.

Smell-It smells like cotton candy and caramel covered apples. I also get some pear and melon.

Taste-I get a surge of hops, but the bitterness isn’t overdone. The Warrior bittering hops are the most noticeable. There is a strong malt base that is caramel and bready. I also pick up on some strawberry which I didn’t expect. This Red IPA is probably one of the best Reds that I’ve tried so far. The malts pair nicely with the floral hops. This is
definitely medium-bodied and also has a sticky but slick mouthfeel.

Overall-This is an excellent Red IPA and I think you’d enjoy this.

Nice clear amber pour. Cream colored head. Plenty effervescent.

Very pleasant aroma. Pear, lemon, melon. Soft florals with hint of mint.

Over carbonated for my liking. Firm feel and medium body.

Malty flaked biscuit, lemon zest, some vegetals, green around the edges. Not too sweet. I kinda still want my pop tart though. Really not my fave style, but this is something I might have again.

This brewery has been the producer of many amazing products. This, the first brew out of their new facility, is a great new beginning. It is a new and exciting taste.

It starts deep brownish red with fine head. The aroma really grows on you. Very sweet and pungent smelling. The taste is a nice balance of mountains of hops and malts, bitters and sweets. The aftertaste lingers nicely.

I would never recommend a toaster pastry but I definitely recommend Toaster Pastry. Long live 21st Amendment (brewery).

12oz. can served in my SA Perfect Pint. Pours a translucent amber with a loose, quarter inch, cream-colored head that sizzles and pops as it disperses into a large bullseye dollop and a tight band around the shoulders. Malty nose with a hint of caramel, big piney hops notes and a light earthy/spicy character. Taste consistent with nose; however, more earthy than piney with almost a character of coffee grounds to the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (but closer to medium) with a crisp carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Overall - not really my thing. The flavors come off a bit too disjointed.

12 oz can poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Best by 6/7/16.

Pours a clear reddish color with a finger of off white soapy foam. Aroma is fairly hoppy, mostly tropical fruit and citrus, with a munich malt sweetness behind it.

First sip has a nice rush of hop flavor, medium body and caramel like sweet finish. Substantial hop presence with grapefruit, papaya, and pine flavors. This is a malt-forward IPA, reminds me a lot of Nugget Nectar.

Very enjoyable. All around good beer.

12 oz can. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of herbal hops, caramel malt and red fruit. Body is medium and smooth. Herbal hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and very bitter. Very tasty brew.
