Inspired by the traditional red ales of Ireland, Riptide Red has a beautiful amber-red color and a medium bodied presence. Our Spring seasonal has a malt aroma reminiscent of light toffee and caramel, and a subtle floral bouquet from Santiam hops. The lush aroma gives way to a full, rounded malty flavor with caramel notes, and a smooth, well-balanced finish. Riptide Red is our local tribute to Irish heritage!

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Its quiet a nice brown colour,quite dark for a "red", has a large tan head. Smell is mostly of caramel malts though the hops to show a little. I did not like the taste of this to begin with, at the start I found it too sweet and watery,but as it warmed more robust characteristics took hold, the malts became less sweet and more caramel and the hops showed well at the end. Thin mouthfeel to start ,but thickened as it warmed ,eventually being rather smooth and nice. A drinkable red ale in the end,not too bad at all.
