I know very little about Red-oric. I went to Parry’s Pizzeria with Roger, friend and martial arts training partner, a few weeks ago and I spoke with Scott, the local Sierra Nevada Market Rep. Scott informed me that Parry’s would soon have a very limited offering named Red-oric and that Parry’s was the only establishment in the Denver area that would receive a keg.
When Lori finished up her classes and we decided to go to Parry’s on Saturday. When I saw Red-oric Imperial IPA (8% ABV) on the list, I wanted to try it and I was not disappointed. If you can find, try it, especially if you like IPAs.
Double / Imperial IPA – http://beeradvocate.com/beer/style/140- Beeradvocate
Appearance – Red with a nice one-finger head served in a New Belgium glass.
Aroma – Resiny / piney hops and a touch / hint of caramel malt.
Taste – This is a hop forward beer and is a great example of a West Coast IPA. I enjoyed this with the green bean appetizer and chicken parmesan. Red-oric is a very tasty beer.
Overall – A – A very nice beer and I was very impressed with this limited release. I saw another Sierra Nevada limited release on the “to be tapped soon” soon – looks like I’ll need to go back to Parry’s soon.
