It tastes very close to Munich Malt. It produces a vibrant red beer, but to get that color you need to use it as 100% of the malt at an OG of 1.050. That essentially would make a red Dunkel. Flavor wise, I really don't think it's a great choice for an IPA base malt. The malt flavor is pretty intense and clashes with the hops. It's definitely a cool novelty in its appearance, but a Red X IPA is not something I'd want to drink 5 gallons of.
I really wanted to like this grain when it first came out and I started experimenting with it, but after using it in a few batches it got relegated to my bin of misfit malts.
