From Penticton’s new Bad Tattoo Brewing comes their “Red IPA” a beer that pours like a stout but tastes like an IPA. The beer pours a deep brown colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of sweet caramel malts, floral hops with lots of roasted notes. The flavour is of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, caramel, tropical fruits and a medium hops bitterness. I think the bitterness is being masked by the roasted flavours. The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of around 60. This beer is a mix of a stout, red ale and an IPA and actually works quite well. If you are in or around Penticton stop in and try a glass.
