A big shout out to Ed (OHLRangers) for including this gem in our Great Taste of the Midwest trade!
A - Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Great Divide cervoise goblet. A beautiful deep red color with tan head that quickly dissipated.
S - Wonderful sweet, malty aroma with somewhat subdued hops in the background; can't wait to taste this beauty.
T - I really like this one...nicely balanced with lingering hoppy aftertaste.
M - Medium body with slightly more carbonation than I'd prefer, but still very enjoyable.
D - I really enjoyed this "Imperial Red Ale" and wish I had more. The name is somewhat misleading, because it's not really a "hoppy monster", but I think that's a good thing in this case. Although I'm sure I would have loved it if it was hoppier, I didn't feel cheated or that "something was missing". Another very nice brew from Terrapin!
