Beer was served in my mug at Estelle's in Boston.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is an amber copper color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Resiny pine, citrus, caramel, chocolate, and toasted malts.

Taste: Pine, citrus, resiny, chocolate, caramel, and toasted malts.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, clean, crisp, some booze, tingly bitterness, medium bodied, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Very nice Imperial red.

Consumed: Sept. 3, 2014
Misc.: Bottled April 24, 2014

Poured a mahogany opaque color with 6-to-7 fingers of khaki tan head. A foamy Port pour? You don’t say. Sporadic foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Great retention. (Sight - 3.88)

Smelled caramel malts, wet Cascade hops, rye, toffee, buttery malts, roasty malts, faint chocolate, citrus hops, pine, wet soapy malts and floral hops. (Smell - 3.63)

Tasted a bit better than the nose. Earthy rye hops, roasty caramel, wet Cascade, light chocolate (still), soapy pine, honey, floral hops, citrus hops, sweetened iced tea and lime zest. (Taste - 4.00)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. (Feel - 4.13)

A nice tasty double amber. Would have it again for sure. (Overall - 4.00)
