3.78/5 rDev -6%
Pours a hazed copper hue with a two finger head and lacing everywhere,the smell is sweet caramel malts,a touch of roastiness with piney hops and a hint of fruit salad,the mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated with tastes of roasted caramel malts followed with a hit of piney hops and finished with a fruit salad bittersweetness that really makes this very drinkable with its high ABV nowhere to be seen and overall it's really enjoyable and I'd buy this again without doubt cheers.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer.
Really liked the color and smell.
The taste was interesting without being overpowering.
I was surprised by the ABV level.
Drinking it, I was unaware that it was that high.
It did not have that overwashing sensation of alcohol.

4.04/5 rDev +0.5%
A: Nice red/copper colour with a bit of hop haze. Big dense fluffy cream head. Great lacing.
S: Truck loads of hop stink. Oozes pine & citrus. Seems super fresh.
T: Hoppy goodness with a slightly sweet malt finish. Awesome clean firm hop bitterness. Bit of toffee.
M: Good mouthfeel. Starts to border on sweet hop syrup as it warms.
O: Great beer. Very impressed. You would never guess it's 9.3%!

4.08/5 rDev +1.5%
A - very hazy swampy reddish brown, one finger of tan head held respectably, decent random lacing as it receded
S - candied fruits, dark toasted bread, pepper, and caramel, smells very much like an ESB
T - pepper and raisins up front, molasses maltiness, touch of pine hops, just like the nose i find the flavour to be very ESB like
M - towards the heavy side, somewhat spicy with a healthy bitter finish
O - bottle says imperial red, its categorized on here as a DIPA, and I think it tastes like an ESB which in some ways is in between those two, so all in all a solid brew that is big tasting yet sneaky drinkable for 9.5%, price was a bit high relative to previous HUB bombers in Alberta but thats a minor detail
