Dawn of the Red
From Eugene, Oregon, Dawn of the Red is a Red IPA with a really cool aesthetic. The 12 oz bottles of the 7% brew feature a zombie motif on the label. The beer is made by Ninkasi Brewing Company. It has a slight reddish hue that runs through an otherwise golden body and it pours with a creamy off-white head.
DotR has a considerably bitter aroma that features a very pleasing tangerine note. Citrus elements permeate the flavour as well, with quality West Coast bitterness well represented.
A very nice ale from a reliable brewery in one of the craft beering-est states in the Union, DotR seemed like a can't miss brew when I put it in the cart, and that prediction proved accurate.
Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
