Pours amber in color with notes of citrus and caramel. Citrus hop bitterness upfront with notes of caramel and an Amish bread sweetness. Citrus hop bitterness returns at the end for a long dry finish.

32 oz growler poured into Duvel tulip. Grant brought this one up from FL for me.

A - pours dark amber orange in the glass. Nice 2 finger dirty white head, little remains on the glass. Good amount of lacing.

S - Good amount of red malts and some honey scent mixed with a generous amount of hops. Floral, citrus, orange, and pine make it very nice. Some dark fruit scents.

T - Great flavor on this. Nice citrus, orange, and bitterness on the front giving way to fruity tones (bitter ones, however). Nice red malts, breadiness, honey, and dark fruit. The sweetness is followed by a more subdued kick of citrus and bitter hops. I love Red Ales that taste like this.

M - Nice carbonation for a Red Ale. Body is medium with some stickiness to it.

O - Another hopped up Red Ale that I enjoyed. May be closer to a Imperial Red IPA, so damn good. Thank you Grant!

A- Pours a golden red with a fair amount of white/cream colored foam; lacing is pretty nice. Sticky brew!

S- Aromas are very citrus-fruity and hop-forward with a nice caramel smell. There are floral and pine notes as well.

T- Delicious malt is the undertone for the prominent citrusy hops, pine, and caramel. The malty caramel thing goes incredibly well with the hop. Probably the best I have tasted in a hoppy red. It is nicely carbonated and juicy (I have seen that as a descriptor before and I have not really understood it until now). Great mouthfeel!

O- This is a remarkable beer, and is the first I have tried from CCB. Looking forward to many more if they are half as good as this one!

The Lost Spring Break 2012 Beer Reviews - Chapter Seven

Dense whipped off-white foam tops a dark amber body with shiny copper highlights.

Big powerful and inviting citrus aroma assaults the nose.

Deep caramel foundation. Breadliness. Juicy fruit follows. Good bitterness that carries through a long aftertaste.

Smooth, creamy medium-plus mouthfeel.

A surprise to find on the shelf on vacation, and I hope to find it again someday.

Delicious. Orange peels, malty goodness, and really balanced. It's everything an imperial red ipa should be.
