Vermilion is our take on a Red IPA. This beer features a rich english malt base and a dose of medium colored caramel malts to give hints of raisins and dark fruit along with a malty sweetness to balance the english style hops that we use during the boil. We then dry hop with a healthy dose of Amarillo and Sorachi Ace for a lemony citrus sweetness.
The name of the game with this beer is balance. Even with 65 IBUs in this beer, the sweetness hides some of the biting bitterness creating a refreshing and rich beer with a crisp finish.
