Beer of the Dragon is classified by Beachwood as an Imperial Red Ale. My growler was empty, so I decided to get it filled with the latest from Julian.

Appearance. From the growler it pours fresh with a nice, thick, foamy head. The color is a deep amber red color. Very nice. The foam starts to die down to a nice level of head.

Smell is fantastic. Sticky sweet malts mingle with dank hops. Taste confirms the nose. It's very good. Considering it's 100 IBUs and a little over 9%, the beer is loaded with everything that's good in life. The malt is sweet and the hops are...hoppy. In typical Beachwood fashion, it's a hoppy beer done right.

The mouthfeel is a bit heavy but nothing to be concerned with. It goes down smooth and drinks well. This is what I wanted KRBC's 6th Anniversary, Dirty Hippie, to taste like. Imperial Red Ales aren't easy to come by, and Beer of the Dragon is exactly what I would want one to taste like. Another fantastic beer from Beachwood!

Type: Draft
Glass: 0.25L glass
From: Blind Lady Ale House in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $2 (progressive kegs, $2 until 2 p.m., $3 until 3 p.m., $4 until 4 p.m.)
Purchased: Jan. 3, 2014
Consumed: Jan. 3, 2014
Misc.: BLAH called it a Red Imperial Ale, Beer Advocate called it an American / Amber Ale and Rate Beer called it an American Strong Ale

Poured a dark red mahogany color with 2-to-3 fingers of deep khaki tan head when I got it. Average amount of sporadic uneven lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention.

Smelled citrus hops, floral hops, earthy malts, caramel, toffee and faint rye hops.

Taste was pretty bitter with what I’m sure is a lot of IBU’s. Hoppy - resin, floral, citrus and grapefruit. Still kind of earthy, but not as noticeable as the smell.

Medium body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.

A pretty good beer overall, although I got three different descriptions (see Misc.). I think it was closest to the Red Imperial Ale, which was what I assumed and rated on anyway. Either way I’d have it again for sure.
