The color was certainly amber but it edged to an orange like iridescent hue. The head built to an inch thick layer of the most condensed foam I've ever seen.

The aromas are exceedingly hoppy with soft pine, hints of herbal tea, citrus fruit, lemon and hop cone.

The flavor is a beat over the head tangerine, with doses of grapefruit and lemon. The herbal or floral pine hop flavor is more as an aftertaste. This as all the markings of a top notch IPA, as the hops are overwhelming, but there is no malt or roast to make this even remotely similar the style.

The feel is very full and despite the carbonation that built the beautiful head, this had a moderate carbonative feel.

Judging on the expectation of an Imperial Red I'd have to say I see no resemblance but based on its own merit I find this exceptional.
