"Oh Grandmother, what dank hops you have!"
One of the newest beer styles is a Red IPA. It takes the best of the west coast hoppy red and American ambers but increases the hopping and alcohol levels to IPA strength. The result is a hoppy, bitter, and moderately strong beer like an American IPA, but with some caramel and toffee malt character with a distinct red color like an American amber. A Red IPA is a little more flavorful and malty than an American IPA without being sweet or heavy like an Irish Red.
A unique feature of our version is that it utilizes the technique called hopbursting that is, adding all of the hops late in the boil to provide huge hop flavor and aroma that can't be beat. This technique gives our Red IPA a fresh hop punch that blends well with the malt bill while still retaining a strong bitterness.

This extract recipe is fantastic. No tweeks needed to it. Perfect hop profile backed with a good red specialty grain bill. I have it on tap right now and I hope it never hits the bottom. One pointer, I used an English yeast strain for this.
I have to say that I was a little skeptical at first about the recipe, but I have to say it is amazing! Not an over the top "hoppy" IPA, but the flavor is full and surprising!
