Red X closely resembles a munich malt in flavor. In larger quantities, 60-80%, it can make a beautiful Red IPA, but in smaller quantities, 5-20%, it works in a lot of beers. Classic pale ales, California IPAs and amber lagers are some that I have used it in.
I have made a few red ipa with this malt and they have turned out nicely. All have used piney type hops and that has seemed to balance out the rich malt well. It is more brown than red without 10-15% lighter malts and if you don't use something to clarify.
I add a few ounces of these to my german blonde beers to add a little color and body to the beer works out great!
