Red EyePA

Red EyePa Tap HandleThis is a good year! Later in October our good neighbors, the Fitzgeralds, are hosting their semi-annual Halloween party. Robyn always has the house incredibly decked out with Halloween decor and we always plan costumes several months in advance. So far I’ve been a beer keg, Captain CondomNacho Libre and a couple more I can’t seem to remember at the moment. This year’s costume will remain a mystery until October 26th! I always brew for the event and this year I brewed a Red IPA and a Pumpkin Amber Ale. The Red IPA is currently conditioning to get all the yeast to drop out, and the Pumpkin Amber Ale is still in the fermentor, but I’m sure it will be ready.

This Red IPA has a lovely, smooth bittering that is nicely set off by a big malty backbone. It’s a beer that is worthy of the event!   A Facebook buddy told me he was looking for a decent Red IPA recipe, so I offer this up to fit that need. Here ya go, John!
