Sits a deep ruby red, nearly brown, with 1.5 fingers tan head. Aroma is very hoppy, earthy, slightly citrusy, with darker malt characteristics wafting through the hops. Taste is very bitter and a bit piney. Dark, thick caramel comes through with a slight hint of chocolate. I also get some orange flavor but maybe I'm just associating it from past experience with the dark malt. This is a medium bodied ale with good carbonation.
This is a solid beer. I'm fast becoming a big imperial red/red IPA fan, and this is a great example of the style. More of an IPA with amber characteristics, it's very hoppy, and the hop flavors and aromas are balanced well with the malt. Nothing too complex, but definitely a good beer to reach for now and again.
