Color Blind Red IPA is great! It’s very floral and smooth at the beginning, but it has a pretty bitter aftertaste per usual for an IPA. Some IPAs are really bitter and too rough to be refreshing, but this ones a great balance – very drinkable in my opinion. This is one of the most refreshing IPAs I’ve ever had. It’s strong and mild at the same time.

I don’t know if I could compare Color Blind Red IPA to any other beers. All the 11 Below beers I’ve drank so far have been very, very drinkable, so there’s that? Color Blind Red IPA is unique for sure.

I gave this one a 4 star because it’s a great beer! I love this stuff. I loved it so much, I drank up the six pack before taking any pictures, (a weakness of mine with this blog,) so shout out to 11 Below’s Twitter and Houston Press for the photos!

Color Blind Red IPA has a deep gold color, almost red as the name suggests.

Color Blind Red IPA BLEW ME AWAY. After having a few of 11 Below’s offerings, I expected it to be good, but I was surprised at how they managed to pack so much flavor into something so refreshing and drinkable.

Artwork/packaging (can only) dark red, black and burgundy on aluminum, with a unicorn shooting lasers or something outta the horn. Epic. Period. I love the style of their artwork every time.

11 Below is growing quickly. You can find them in the beer/wine aisle at any good grocer and on tap at most beer-centric restaurants/pubs around town. I, per usual, got my 6 pack at HEB.

This beer is great. It’s a bit bitter for the average joe, so I wouldn’t recommend it to just anybody. However, if you dig IPAs or trying something new, Color Blind Red IPA is a good choice. I’ve read nothing but good things about this beer, so I guess the hype is right. What’d you think of it? Let us know below.
