Did not like this. Tastes more like a lager than anything else, complete with throat burn. No hops or flavors or anything interesting. Think of the beer you drank in college when you had no cash. That's it!

Bottle best by 12/9/16. Oops. DFH tulip.

A: pours a clear dark red/Amber with 1 finger frothy light beige head that dissipates quickly to a thick ring of bubbles around the edge. Little visible carb to speak of.

S: toasted Amber ale malts, yummmm! Fresh black cherries and overripe bananas. Sweet.

T: first impression is dry and slightly hoppy/green. Mid palate is surprisingly crisp, dry, and toasty. Finish starts to turn malty, then into a woodsy bitterness with characteristic red ale toastiness.

M: solidly midweight, pretty dry and slightly astringent.

O: I have seen this on shelves, and it intrigued me. I am a fan of red ales, and this does not disappoint - toasty with body, but not excessively sweet. Very drinkable and I can see this pairing very well with food. Says a lot, given this was two weeks out of date and the store didn't have it refrigerated. Will bring a sixer back next time I visit.

L- Gorgeous beer. About a finger of off-white head that lingers. Clear amber color borders on a dark orange depending on the light.
S- Alright. Not very aromatic. Mostly malt and bread notes. Some hops? Maybe...
T- Bitter malt. There is so much variation in what qualifies as a Red Ale that I am judging this by what it says on the bottle "American Red IPA" As such I was left wanting some more of the hops to come trough. Instead I get malt and caramel on the forefront and a standard bitterness on the back end. Solid but underwhelmed. Not as complex as I was expecting from the other reviews and its style. Maybe mine was old?
F- Medium body, smooth. Just the right amount of carbonation.
O- Solid but underwhelmed. Might buy it again but there are other reds I love much more.
