$10.75 bomber from Abe's.
Truly a red ale. Deep scarlet with great clarity. Rising carbonation throughout. Topped by two fingers of off-white-with-a-hint-of-beige rocky micro-bubbles.
Huge citrus nose. Grapefruit, mango. BIt of lemon. Some pine too.
Thick slabs of caramel goodness slathers the tongue and lays a firm foundation. It fruit. Even bigger bitterness. Crushing bitterness scrubs the tongue at the swallow.
Solid full mouthfeel carries everything along smoothly.
A terrific Imperial Red. Ballast Point needs to ship this more frequently.
