4.13/5 rDev +10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a hazy russet color with an impressive head (perhaps a bit too massive); great retention and stickage
Smell: Like a pine forest; hints of caramel and tobacco underneath
Taste: The malts arrive first, with a real Irish Red character, followed quickly by the piney hops, bringing a bit of tobacco and earthy character to the fray; very dry and hoppy, in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: I am not a big fan of Imperial Ambers as I often find them to be sticky, with a huge malt bill to complement the hops; in this case, we have a nice dry finish and enough hops to add plenty of flavor; really like this beer and would call it an Imperial Irish Ale to better qualify the style; kind of like a Conway's with a big hop bill
Serving type: bottle
