Share This Review

Shipyard Red IPA is an American Red Ale brewed by Shipyard Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a shaker pint glass from a bottle.


This Red pours a cloudy deep amber hue and is topped by nearly an inch-thick cap of loose, puffy, off-white foam that shows good retention. A smattering of lace clings to the glass following the reduction.


The aroma mixes biscuit and tropical fruits with a varied hoppiness of pine, grass, and citrus.

The palate begins with notes of citrus and pine followed by caramel, tropical fruit, and toasted biscuit. A more pronounced bite of pine and grass greet the finish with a lingering taste of grapefruit and lemon.


Its feel is smooth with a medium body and matching carbonation. Mild dryness and astringency.


The Shipyard Red IPA presents nicely and its aroma and palate are well balanced and complex. There aren’t really any flaws and this Red Ale does make for good, easy drinking.
