12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a thick one finger white head. Excellent head retention and pretty good lacing.

Aroma of earthy hops with some tree bark and a good bit of caramel. Maybe a little orange in there as well.

The orange becomes more apparent on the taste but there is still more earth than citrus. Some we tree bark along with caramel and toast. There is some pine that sneaks through but it remains restrained. Fairly high bitterness and a sticky sweeter finish.

Overall, an ok IPA but very run of the mill. Nothing to get really excited about here and not a beer I would really seek out on a regular basis.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a bottle. Poured into Dogfish pint glass.

Appearance - Deep brown in color with a subtle golden and amber tint. Head is a bright with a a slight golden brush. Lacing is light and falls down the side of the glass as you drink.

Smell - Bright citrus with strong grapefruit notes. Mild earthy backing with some pine. Great balance of each note though. Enjoyed sticking my nose deep in the glass before each sip.

Taste - The citrus hops are right up front but slowly diminish and fade to the back. You're left with a subtly dry and caramel finish. From the smell I expected a bit more bitter in the taste, but was left a little disappointed here. Still a smooth, easy drinking IPA, but wanted a little more bite from the hops.

Mouthfeel - Very dry, and flavors leave quickly.

Overall - First time experiencing something from Red Brick. A well done IPA but felt it lacked a little in the taste and mouthfeel. A great IPA for kicking back and enjoying the summer. I especially believe this to be a great introductory IPA for someone looking to perhaps explore the type of brew.
