Labeled as “a massively dry-hopped crimson IPA,” this brew gets its vibrant red hue from the special German malts used, called Red X, and its hop profile from the addition of Mosaic, Cascade and Amarillo hops. The resulting beer is a pleasant mix of IPA and red ale characteristics, with bright hop-centric scents of lemon and orange rind that are countered by a hit of clean malt. The smooth, medium-bodied palate boasts a rich, malty core, with flavors of toffee and toasted bread alongside hints of grapefruit pith and pine that carry through the mildly astringent finish. It's surprisingly balanced, harmonious and easy to drink, despite the moderate alcohol. Lauren Buzzeo
