Poured from a 64oz growler from The Best Of Brews in Duluth. The color is copper/gold with an off white head. The smell earthy and floral hopps. the taste is very good, hoppy, drinkable and friendly. definantly tasty a good move for the brewery, they have had too many weak beers in the past.

Comes out of the tap an opaque, cloudy honey golden with a fairly thick pale honey head. In fact, it looks a lot like honey, real honey fresh from the hive. Hoppy aroma has a sweet honey-like overtone and a nice evergreen note. Flavor - woo wee, seriously hoppy, very evergreen, with a sweet undertone and just a little bitterness. Full-bodied texture is quite rough and fizzy, leaving behind a hoppy, tingly, slightly honey-sweet finish. Recommended!

Bottle -- No bottling date but, being this was just released, this can't be more than a couple weeks old.

A -- Honey amber color..a bit cloudy. 2 finger head with decent head residue floating after it sits. Moderate lacing

S -- Very sweet citrus...grapefruit...smells like a solid IPA

T -- Not near as sweet as the smell. This beer is full of hoppy bitterness! Very much on the piney side. I'm not sensing a whole lot of malt...I think they were aiming for an unbalanced hop bomb and they succeeded.

M -- Resinous

O -- I typically don't review beers that I drink but I thought giving a local brew a little bit of love for something that was surprisingly good was in order. While Terrapin and Sweetwater put out quality IPAs, I think that Red Brick has upped the ante a bit by releasing something that, to me, is much more in the West Coast vein of IPAs....in-your-face hops with little regard for balance.
