Harshly hoppy and bitter. Not a session beer. Probably not going to drink again.

this one is an attempt to be bold, real bold, and it is largely successful i think, but it falls into that over balanced ipa category so many do. the issue is trying to boost abv and color, but accidentally (on purpose) end up making it thick, filling, and weirdly sweet in the middle while losing the hop intensity the beer sought to begin with. its good, dont get me wrong, and looks real nice, all golden and puffy, clear but honey hued, and emitting aromas of simcoe oils and crystal 60, although i cant positively confirm either ingredient. the taste is much the same, but instead of being all hops in the finish, its more grainy than it needs to be, and adds weight unnecessarily i think. for me, one was enough, although i suppose i have become a bit of a snob over the years, especially in the american ipa category. this just doesnt measure up to even the low A level ones, but i think its probably one of the better ones around, and if you like a big malty chewy ipa, than this is the type for you. red brick has been underwhelming for me in my limited exposure to their brews so far...

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a brown/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, some hops. Taste is hoppier than the smell, some bitterness, malts are also present, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid and enjoyable beer.

From a mixed sixpack made up at Orlando Whole Foods market. Bottled 9/25/14, so over 3 months old.

a: Slightly hazy amber topped by a half finger thick white head which shrank to thin patchy surface foam and fairly dense lacing.

s: Strong floral, nearly perfumy aroma.

t: Dank vegetal and pine resin with a significant bitter bite. Vegetal and floral finish.

m: Medium with good body and plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: A different-tasting brew, somewhat harsh but still drinkable, boosted
by the persistently pleasant flowery aroma. May have suffered from age.
