Bright, shiny, clear red amber. Plenty of carbonation streams. Softball of light tan bubbles of all sizes and shapes. Dense lace.

Assertive aroma of fresh bread, earthy hops, and candy.

Big sweet malt splashes the tongue. Plenty of caramel. Bitter bite at the swallow. Clean finish.

Full smooth mouthfeel.

A good imperial red leaning toward the malty side.

This is a pretty strong brew. 8% for an IPA is pretty amazing! What makes this brew so good is the rich, hoppy feel. This beer is heavy and dark and pours a beautiful amber-molasses color. The aroma is a lot lighter than the taste and has great head on it. Pours smooth, but heavy. Not for the faint of heart... easily one of the better red ales I have ever had!

The rye lingers as this beer warms. Citrus hops, caramel is balanced with the citrus character. Very good imperial Amber Ale. Taste like an IPA, but lacking most characters in an IPA. This is a strong version of an Amber.

I got this one fresh. Only a week old.
