look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottled July 7th 2014.

Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Tree House tulip pint.

a: Clear copper with a finger and a half offwhite head which receded to thin surface foam and patchy and spotty lacing.

s: Mild ripe fruit, peppery spice and bready malt

t; Slightly fruity and peppery spice under a sharp hop bite. Bitterness lingers at the back sides of the tongue. Dry finish.

m: Medium with good body and plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: A good Imperial red which makes its presence known and is reasonably tasty.
