Very malty red ale with plenty of hop flavor to balance. Smooth bitterness, not harsh at all. Color is a bit lighter than other imperial reds leaning more to a dark orange, and quite hazy. The aroma is modest especially compared to the rich complexity of flavors. Caramel, floral, a hint of citrus. I would buy this again.
