Incredibly malty. Doesn't hide the bite well. Imperial Reds just aren't my thing.

22 oz bomber

Appearance: Hazy rich amber color with an enormous beige head

Smell: citrus, caramel malt, smokey leather

Taste: Caramel malt, slight citrus, and a musty yeast character, smokey leather

Mouthfeel: Medium feel; Its entirely too carbonated and dry for me from start to finish

Overall: This is not the red ale im accustomed to. The hop and malt varieties dont work together, and are all over the place. It also has a gritty and very dry mouthfeel; Overly carbonated. I love a great red, such as Nugget Nectar and lagunitas, but this is far from those. I thoroughly enjoyed Mongo, but im very dissapointed with this offering. It was actually hard for me to finish

Hazy amber with a really big fluffy beige head, leaving a lot of messy lacing on the glass.
Smell of sweet citrusy hop and rich caramel maltiness, candy, peach, some pineapple, pine, faint alcohol.
Rich fermenting tangerine, pineapple syrup, candied grapefruit, bit of mango and maracuja. Sweet caramelised malts, honey, hints of toffee and toast. Pine towards the finish, spicy leafiness, nice and bitter.
Pretty long finish and a nice intense aftertaste, with some prickling hop, lots of citrus peel, caramel, candy, hints of tropical fruit still around. Medium body, prickly carbonation.
A really by-the-book amber ale, lots of Westcoast hoppiness, rich malts, nice and balanced.

Murky and overcarbed. Wish it were better.

Bottle poured into a nonic pint glass

A: Pours deep reddish brown amber with a frothy tan head that hangs around and laces well.

S: Caramel malt sweetness, some dank hops, and some light pine and citrus.

T: Roasty malt, toffee, light coffee, some pine and citrus, with a slight fruitiness on the back side. Hides its alcohol well.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Maybe not my favorite, but not bad.

If your a hop head this is a great red ale for you, I just don't like hops that much.
