Notes

An attempt at a great Red IPA, Inspired by Samuel Adams' Tasman Red, Green Flash's Hop Head Red, and Sierra Nevada's Flipside Red IPA 09/21/13 - Brewed 09/28/12 - Into Secondary with Dry Hopping, initial color and taste testing looks promising. Secondary with Dry Hop: 09/28/12 Racked to Keg:10/26/2013 Somewhat hazy, beer tastes like it could benefit from aging. Taste Testing: 11/18/13 The beer is very clear now, is a deep red color, has a background hint of sweet roasted flavor and this beer is very hoppy but not overpowering. I would rate it 9.25 out of 10.00 and definitely brew it again, although I might try to make it just a bit sweeter with an additional .25lbs of Crystal. Let me know if anyone else brews this. Thanks
