Brewed with royalty in mind, no expense was spared in crafting our Imperial Red. Generous additions of our favorite hop varieties blend harmoniously with long layers of dark caramel malts.

10 ounce pour at the brewery.

Creamy, frothy oatmeal-colored head is impressive. Lots of sticky lace. Semi-hazy deep amber body. 4.25

Piney and resinous hops. Definitely hop forward. Subtle citrus notes and not much malt to be detected. 4

Piney hops rule the flavor too. Dank and resinous are apt descriptors here. There's a bit of a spicy and rye like flavor and light caramel and bread notes. Not always perceivable, but there's some citrus to be found here. 4

Creamy mouthfeel beets biting spice and bitterness. Slightly sweet but more in the realms of IPA territory for hops and bitterness. Dry on the finish. 4

Been too long since I've had this and a review was long overdue. Hop heads will enjoy this.

Look - Beautiful dark cherry pours with 1/2 inch foam
Smell - Hop forward but sweetness and slight caramel
Taste - mmmmm, more malty than first expected, caramel creamy goodness!
Feel - Super smooth and well-balance hop-malt. Just falls into your throat
Overall - Awesome, the best imperial red out there. No wonder GABF Gold 2014

Picked up a bomber in late March from Total Wine for $6.29. Mfg Date of 11-27-13.

Beer poured deep amber with a large off white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is grapefruit zest and toasted malts.

Taste starts with a huge toasted caramel malt backbone balanced nicely but a big grapefruit hop. After taste is piney.

Mouthfeel is huge, full and viscous; very satisfying.

Overall this is a delicious brew! I would love to try it fresher to see how it compares!
