Deep amber in color with an off white head. Good lace and retention. Great balance of sweet tasty malt and bright piney hops. Super creamy and thick with great feel and finish. Although a bit cloying after a while. Great hop profile and definitely an Imperial Red as opposed to an Imperial Red IPA. Solid, delicious beer for malt fans and hop heads alike.

Pours a three-finger cream/beige head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Pine/resin nose and flavor is pine hops and caramel, light bitter aftertaste, higher ABV is hidden. $7.20 for a 220z bottle from a Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, ME.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours hazed lobstah red.

The smell is hoppy with citric/tropical fruits and pine. Plenty of "red" caramel-ish malt backs it up.

The taste is of sweet toffee/caramel with mild toasted bread. Musty/citric/piney hops weave in and out. It has a strong malty backbone with balancing hops in the finish. Alcohol is nicely incorporated with just a hint of pepper. Some residual sweetness lingers on the lips.

It hits full-bodied, without being thick. It has medium carbonation.

This is a wicked good beeah! Hoppy, malty, tasty - great smell! Too bad it doesn't come in a six pack. Very enjoyable and dangerously drinkable!

Semi hazed dull orange color with about 2 fingers of off white head with an orange tinge. Nice hoppy nose of citrus fruits, tangerines covered in sticky caramel drizzle.

Thick body with initial sweetness but the beer avoids being sticky. Carbonation is brisk but doesn't break the body up too much. Sweet candied tropical fruits up front. Malty sweetness hits the mid palate. Faint bitterness to balance everything, lingering cereal grain flavors along win a touch of tobacco make de a unique, tasty and refreshing beer that brings you to thoughts of a Hawaiian luau at sunset. Different in a good way with some other hidden complexities, burnt sugars, tangerines, faintly flowery. A complex beer with lots of different flavors that all work together, it's also just nice to sip and enjoy it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is clear reddish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles in the center and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell is a little sweet and has aromas of toasted malts along with hints of pine resin hops.
T: Following the smell, the taste has flavors of toasted malts along with notes of tea leaves and hints of herbal hops. There's slight bits of sweetness but also hints of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is a very good representation of the style. I would definitely try this again.

Ruby colored with a decent sized off-white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with some piney hops to balance it out. Medium bodied with a thick texture and slightly bitter finish. Very drinkable for 8%. I enjoyed this beer and look forward to trying some of their other offerings.
