on tap at Harvey Washbanger's in College Station, TX
(drank Feb. 16, 2015)

L: clear amber, big thick tan head, lots of lacing and stick ... definitely a red ale. very pretty

S: pine and grapefruit ... gets real sweet but keeps a lot of pine and tart citrus notes; only a bit of the caramel/mango sweet, but the malt here is showing up

T: sweet pine tree ... might have a hint of mango ... bitter. big bitter, but the big sweet notes are playing back and forth nicely; definitely some citrus notes (not mango/tropical fruit), and the pine is for real. a bit sweeter than I'd like but very good

F: solid all around; great carbonation

O: good pine notes and near-perfect mouthfeel; there's no alcohol in the taste but it has a warming effect for sure; it's good enough that I'll seek it out again.

This is a very nice imperial red ale-not a style that I've heard of but I like it. It has a beautiful deep amber color and a slightly piney/hoppy fragrance and taste. It has enough malt to balance a moderate amount of hops for balance. Very drinkable on a cool day.
