Really good this year. I'd rather have a Warmer than a Nugget Nectar in 2015.

Not really bold enough for an imperial red label. Put that aside and it is a great beer!

Look - filtered crystal clear amber, not red as advertised.

Aroma - low intensity, but pleasant. Very light citrus and pine. Very little malt aroma made it past the filter, but it looks good so.....

Flavor - leans towards the dilute side, but not too weak. The flavor is more enjoyable than the aroma and can be consumed in mass quantity without hesitation or objection. Very smooth, easy drinking beer.

Overall - I rated this as an Imperial Red because that's what it says on the package. As far as Imp Reds go, this one is soft and not hoppy enough. If I rated it as an Amber ale, the score would have been higher. Regardless of the ramifications of the style conundrum, this is a nice beer that I enjoyed drinking.

Pours a cloudy copper with a tall, soapy head and heavy lacing. Not a very strong nose, but grapefruit and piney hops are evident without much malt. It tastes grapefruity up front, but it ends with warm, toasty malts. It feels smooth, bubbly and light.

Overall, one of the better Amber Ales I've had! Smooth, balanced and refreshing.

Burnt orange body, somewhat hazy, topped by four fingers of dense off-white foam. Thick lace circles.

Big orange aroma, with some pine highlights.

Thick semi-sweet foundation. Big juicy fruit middle. Quick bitter nip at the swallow. Tingly finish.

A very good hop forward big red, seek it out.

Poured a copper body with one finger head and lace ring down glass. A mostly citric hop aroma with touches of malty sweetness like caramel but more hoppy. I really enjoyed this beer as it is balanced as is my preference with even hops and caramel malt sweetness, although it does finish a little dry with soapy hops.
