A deep amber almost brown in color with 2 fingers of frothy off white head. Smells deliciously sweet like caramel and very floral and piney hop notes. The flavor is arable up front, slight toastyness, then a nice grapefruit/pine hop subtle ness. A very delicious sweet amber with medium body and medium carbonation. Definitely worth getting again.

4.06/5 rDev +0.5%
Appearance:deep orange color tending towards red. Very hazy and opaque. A finger of a tannish head that fades to just about nothing
Smell:toasty and caramel malts. Not too sweet and pretty toasty. Citrus and resiny hops. Hop aroma is pretty strong. Good balance between strong malts and strong hops.
Taste: mirrors the nose exactly. A bit more citrus and resin though. This pushes the balance to hoppy.
Mouthfeel: fairly bitter but in a good hoppiness. Fairly sticky. Good thick body.
Overall: a well brewed imperial red. Nothing too special but it is tasty. Another well done pipeworks beer.

3.64/5 rDev -9.9%
Appearance - For a red, this is not exactly red. I supposed it could be the blood of a unicorn that has started to dry. Enough with the semantics!
Smell - The grassy hops get my attention most immediately. I do not really detect the malt in the aroma.
Taste - The beer itself is very hop forward. There is some sweet citrus to the hops, but the sweetness from the malt stays masked. There is some biscuit texture and even a note or two of dark fruit. Mildly resiny hops are present in the aftertaste and actually linger quite nicely. This red does not really fit the style, even for an imperial.
Mouthfeel - The beer is thick enough to linger, which allows the hops to tickle the tongue a little longer. Modest carbonation is present.
Overall - I have had better imperial reds than this one. After waiting patiently to try this one, I am mildly disappointed.

3.79/5 rDev -6.2%
A : Beautifully clear and reddish brown color with a nice white head with a lingering head.
S: Faint smells of citrus with some toffee and pine with some caramel toasty bready notes on the backend. Smell doesn't blow you away in intensity but what I can get smells great.
T: You get some citrus upfront with some piney notes, but for the most part it has a dark caramel raisin flavor with some sweetness.
M: Nice mouthfeel, however pretty sweet.
O: Overall, I like it. With amber ales they can be overly sweet and way too caramel forward but with this one you a nice balance with it and a slight hoppy flavor upfront.
