I couldn't find any of the info you pulled off the site, I actually couldn't find the Red on their site at all. I'm sure pacman would work well but I'm assuming they use Chico yeast on this recipe as that's what they use in majority of their beers. Now the 'experimental' hops is a hard guess, Sierra Nevada grows all its own hops and barley so for all we know it's a new hybrid strain they developed. If I had to guess on a strain to use though I'd probably go with Cascade, I doubt it's what they use but it looks like they'd fill that hole well.

You won't be disappointed. It's a phenomenal beer. IIRC, it is seasonal but I could be wrong. Good news is I think it's a fall beer!

Do you have a source for that? I know they grow some of their hops and barley but all of them? Pardon me for being incredulous but Sierra Nevada is a pretty prolific brewery so the thought of them producing all of their own barley and hops is pretty incredible.

It's on the Beer Camp site. It's called Red Oric.

I was ice fishing in Temagami Canada and I took a bunch of Great Lakes beers with me. I'm a big fan of Burning River Ale. The old guy that ran the Lodge was strictly a Labatt's drinker - when he wasn't drinking Rye.

I gave him an Edmund Fitzgerald Porter to try. He looked at the bottle, took a swallow, grimaced, and gave me the bottle back. I asked him how he liked it. He said "Yea - that's about right. It tastes like a rusting hulk".

That's my favorite beer quote of all time.

The experimental hop could be the HBC 342 that More Beer has for sale. Check it out, uses some of the same words in the description as on the SN website, notably "melon notes". I'dlink to it but I'm on my ipad and copying & pasting is a pita. Sorry.
