I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at McMenamins in Mill Creek, WA. The beer menu calls this an Imperial Red Ale.

Appearance: deep amber brown hue with a moderate haze. Head is a thin finger of creamy white foam which dissipated quickly. Not too bad.

Smell: lightly caramelly malt aroma. Hops are not particularly strong in the smell.

Taste: lightly caramelly malt flavor with a pretty healthy dose of somewhat harsh hops with a citrusy character. Bitterness is on the high side of moderate. A little bit too rough around the edges for me.

Mouthfeel: medium body with an OK carbonation and a healthy fizziness, but not super creamy.

Overall: a decent enough hoppy red ale, but just kind of rough. I don't think I'd seek another pint of this.

Pint at Thompsons Brewpub in Salem. Dark red/ruby with a small tan head. Toasty toffee caramel aroma. Taste is similar to the nose. Maybe a bit of resiny hop. Good full mouthfeel Nice winter beer on a cold night in Salem.

A balance northwest IRA. On tap at Edgefield. Balanced, malty flavor. A deep amber color. A somewhat pungent hoppy scent. Very pleasant, warm hoppy taste. A bit under carbonated, but the flavor made up for it! A fine example of the IRA. Available at most McMenamins!
