3.9/5 rDev -5.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance - small, lightly frothed head, Red copper in color with relative clarity
Smell - very light - smell falls flat compared to the taste, does not add enough complexity for me
Taste - sharp hops up front with strong acidity on the finish. High attenuation that you can taste. Aftertaste is bitter with notes of pine and dark earth, slightly metallic
Mouthfeel - well carbonated which adds variety to the hops as you work through the beer, medium/light body with a strong almost gritty aftertaste
Overall - A good beer, a great canned beer. I realize in retrospect it wasn't fair to drink this after drinking the Lagunitas Sucks IPA, which in my humble opinion is a brilliant and beautifully made IPA. G'Knight Imperial Red is very good, I just wish it had more of an amber balance and slightly heavier body.
Serving type: can
