look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: a deep reddish orange. a touch hazy but mostly clear. a foamy off white head that hung around for a long time.

Smell: citrus hops, toffee, caramel malts. the sweet and bitter are both strong

Taste: again its a battle between big bitter hops and strong sweet malts. citrus hops, toffee and caramel, a nice little touch of alcohol. Nicely balanced and definitely delicious

Mouthfeel: starts of with a slight bitterness but quickly gives way to an extremely nice sweet and creamy feel. not overly hot or heavy.

Overall: Bell's should release their imperial red ales more often and in bottles. This beer is amazing and so is this one goes to eleven. a beer similar to these as a seasonal release would be killer

Don't let the Beeradvocate clasification or the appearance fool you. This is basically a red colored IPA. It may have marginally more malts than average, nonetheless, this is a hop forward beer with all of the hop aroma and flavor of a typical American IPA, or at least a hoppy APA. The quality is not typical but rather clearly above average in virtually all respects. Recommended!

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery tasting room. Pretty pretty good for the style. A very good hoppy nose. Yellow body surprisingly. Like an IPA with a good malt, and citrus edge. A little acidic. Like a 1.5X IPA in bitterness with malt backing. Above average mouthfeel.

On tap @ Bell's.

A - Medium amber colour with a small amoutn of white head.

S - Sweet caramel malts at first followed by, citrus and floral hop aromas with a good bitterness present.

T - Good balance. Sweet caramel malts that are well balanced by floral, herbal and light citrus hops. A good bitterness is present.

M - Light to medium body. Moderae caronation.

O - An extrememly well done beer that is second only to nugget nectar for the style in my experience.
