Our Imperial Red Ale is brewed with whole Cascade hops and dry-hopped in both the fermenter and the serving tank with whole Crystal hops. A flavorful, hoppy delight balanced with caramel sweetness and alcohol warmth.

Pours clear, reddish-brown in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is dry herbal hops, sweet caramel, toasted malt, and brown sugar. Complex for the style. This is probably my favorite Revolution beer that I have had. I will get this again.

Soft red burgundy hue with a dense 'pink' head.

Gargantuan juicy aromas of oranges and grapefruit. Malt, rye, tarry pine and burnt sugar sweetness.

Pleasant sweet malt front, citrus in the middle and resinous hop numbing sensation on the tongue with rye ringing through the nasal cranium. Love the alcohol sensation that keeps this real.

Dense body, chewy and voluptuous. Great cold but I really enjoyed when it warmed up.

Real close to Green Flash Imp Red. Just freakin' delicious. This one is a Hat Trick for sure.
