look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A) Beautiful thick and hazy dark orange-amber colored beer with very little head.
S) Smells like orange, pine and caramel with a little bitterness that hits the nose.
T) Woah. A very complex beer that starts off kind of sweet and very malt-forward with a little orange citrus balance that fades into a deep bitterness.
M) This is a fairly thick an heavy beer but good for an Imperial Red Ale.
O) A decent Imperial Red but leaves a lot to be desired. I would take Great Lakes Nosferatu over this one in a second. It is almost too bitter for my taste but overall, a decent beer.
