Served in tulip. Poured an attractive, clean, clear red with less than 1/2 inch of khaki head that had moderate retention and light lacing.

A big hit of bright, strong hops hits the nose first, followed by just enough malt sweetness to provide a solid counter-point. On the tongue the story was the same, just bolder and bigger. The citrusy hops lingered nicely at the back of the palate.

The body was full and smooth, but finished clean and dry, despite it's sweetness. Drinkability was good, but I'm not sure I'd take on 2 in a row. Overall, a very good brew, close to a must try, and certainly worth your time.

Poured from the bottle into a Dogfish Head Signature glass.

A real nice caramel brown and red body, highlights with some dark chestnut brown around edges. Light tan head makes four fingers and settles slowly with a nice cap, kind of creamy a little fluffy.

Nose is tea like herbal hops and soft brown sugar malt undertones. Quite nice and refreshing.

Palate hits with a good rich body, and density. Tea and sweetened Southern style tea action seems to hit on the palate. Juicy malt profile with a refreshing leafy hop angle. Finish leaves a little bit of caramel tasting malt goodness.

Overall pretty tasty, but the sweetness is a little much. I am also not a big fan of sweetened tea and this beer reminds me of it a bit.

On tap at The Red Hot in Tacoma, WA.

Appearance: Deep red amber with a one finger creamy head.

Smell: Pine hop aromas and a rich malt aroma.

Taste: Big chewy malt, bread, and caramel malt flavor. Finishes with a moderately hoppy pine finish.

Mouthfeel: More full-bodied, creamy, average carbonation.

O: A more malt forward amber/red that is straightforward.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Poured a clear crimson color with a nice dirty white cap, good amount of bubbles and lacing

S: Big citrus nose with a little bit of pine

T: Immediate fresh, big citrus followed by a light pine, there is some lightly toasted malt. The finish is dry, a light hop bitterness, booze sting

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated with citrus dominating the palate and mouthfeel

O: Lots of fruity esters. While this beer was a great drink, I thought it woudl have had a little more backbone.

A - Poured out a clear, burgundy color with a one-finger, thick head of tan foam. It left sticky rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled very spicy and piney with a toasty presence.

T - This is a great imperial red. Big roasted malt taste with a strong pine and citrus bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied beer with a dry finish.

O - This is a really good imperial red ale. Big bold flavors all around.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a clear medium reddish orange amber. One finger fine light tan head with great retention and lacing. Great aroma of pine and citrus hops with light fruit and slight sweet malt. Flavor is very well integrated sweet malt, pine and citrus hops with light fruit juice and citrus. Flavor is subtle at first, but the flavor element reveal themselves in a pleasant way. Citrus and hop finish. Medium bodied with nice creaminess, excellent mouth feel. A very nicely made red ale; glad this rare one made it up to Seattle.
