Stone Pataskala Red X IPA

Stone Pataskala Red X IPA is an American Amber, 7.3 ABV and 75 IBU.   Hop package is Amarillo, Cascade and Mosaic.  The appearance is ruby red and bubbly, the nose caramel malt and pungent hop.  The palate is that of a very hopped up amber, with sweet caramel malt finishing a strong pine bitterness.  Mouthfeel is smooth with a measure of creaminess and depth of flavor.   Pataskala works, I can’t readily think of a better, fairly easily accessible hopped up Amber.  It’s a nice one to sip on but that overall sweetness would make this hard to have more than one or two.
