A - Pours an extremely dark ruby orange. Nice two fingers of lightly tan, thick creamy head. Solid lacing.
S - Wonderful sweet bouquet of persimmons, apricot, peach, nectarine, grapefruit and hops.
T - Sweet hoppy peach and grapefruit, bit of lightly sweet rye in the back end of the beer. No trace of alcohol, impressive for the high ABV.
O - An amazing, 5 star IPA. A must try for IPA fans!
V - Four pack of tall cans, high priced but worth it for the quality.

Using this as my baseline for amber craft beer excellence! If you are in Longmont, as I have been to visit relatives, this is a must drink at the Tasty Weasel. This beer made me join this rating system. It has a nice arching and satisfying taste profile but not an overbearing bitter aftertaste which I do not like! This has kept me from enjoying many an IPA. If you like Red's this one will give you a smooth memorable mouth-gasm.

very smooth as an imperial IPA should be very strong on the hops. Light enough to enjoy but still has really good substance.

One of my favorite Imperial Red's. The can doesn't lie when it comes to this brew being sticky. You can taste the stickiness!

Pours a rich red amber with a fair amount of head. Strong hop smell and even stronger forward taste.

Recommended to any IPA lover.
