Notes/Commercial Description:
Atomic Raygun Imperial Red is a big, aggressively hopped Red Ale. It starts out with piney aromas and citrus flavors courtesy of the generous hops, and finishes with a nice rich, malty sweetness that balances the crisp hop bitterness.

Thanks to Deuane for grabbing this growler for me.

A: The amber ale is doesn't mislead. It is an amber color that matches a bottle or growler in shade. A thick yellow-tinted white head leaves rocky head that laces near the mouth of the glass.

S: An ample hop profile drips with spicy citrus notes. The hops don't overrun the ale though, the malt profile is very similar to Seven Gates only turned up to 11.

T: The ale starts as a hop bomb, dripping with thick bitterness. Citrus flavors and pepper are very spicy, flavorful but biting. Mid-sip, the ale transitions to a malt-laden behemoth. Caramel malts are sweet and stand out in contrast to the sharp bite of the hops.

M: The mouthfeel is at once bitter and sweet with a malt profile that is Seven Gates on steroids.

D: I concur with Deuane, tone down the spice and add some floral spice and this ale would really work.

Serving type: growler

Bomber > Pint Glass

A - Dark red, ruby almost brown color with half a finger of off white soapy head, no lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet candies, roasted malts, toast, herbal hops.
T - Lots of weird roasty malt kinda flavors, then some really sweet cherry kinda flavor, like a halls or something, very big herbal hop presence.
M - Excessively chewy and sticky.
O - This beer is all over the place, and it misses the mark in all five zones.

Draft offering at the springhouse taproom. The brew pours a clear amber color with lighter yellow seen around the edges when held to the light. A khaki finger of head rests atop with a rich and frothy full wall lace sticking to the glass.

The aroma includes a little caramel malt sweetness accented with a fruity/floral alcohol and hop component. Interesting and enjoyable without fault.

The taste is herbal with some resinous fruits and floral hop aspects. Quite bitter but enjoyable. A light kiss of fruity alcohol resides overtop a pulpy hop bite.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is smooth and almost creamy in the feel. I have had this brew several times before and never bothered to review. I found myself enjoying this much more than in the past. I dont know if this is just fresher than ive ever had it or if they have been tweeking the recipe... all I know is this was good and if you havent tried it in awhile, you should make the effort to.

Serving type: on-tap
