Rubicon Irish Red Ale
Rubicon Brewing – Rubicon Irish Red – 22 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. 7% abv.
Appearance: Pours a clear dark red. Atop, sits a big dense tan head.
Aroma: Citrusy Amarillo type dry hopping, caramel and red apple skins.
Taste: Spicy sweet malt, burnt sugar, and a mild but noticeable hop bitterness that lingers.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and a tad creamy.
Overall: A really nice red ale. Please don’t let the name fool you, this is much better than your typical Irish red. The malts are nicer, and that California kiss of hops takes it from good to great.
