On tap at the Cellar in Blacksburg, Va. Listed as an imperial red ale. Nice red appearance. A very mild and subdued aroma. A hop bomb, the name is accurate. Bitter up front with a sweet malty undertone, excellent balance. Above average mouthfeel, not too thick and not to thin. Excellent ale overall, more like a double IPA. Good stuff.

Honestly, I know that officially this is an IRA (Imperial Red Ale), but as far as I am concerned and for all intents and purposes this beer come in 2nd on my IPA list right now, just behind Ruination from STONE.

It just has everything a good IPA should have, aroma, color, depth and complexity of taste, and of course a 110 IBU count, it however also mixes in a few traits of the red ale style to balance it out. This beer comes in at #4 overall on my personal beer list at the moment. LOVE IT.

Solid and smooth ipa. Hides the abv well with very little bitterness. Pours a golden dark orange. Smells of hops and citrus. Little bitterness but not too much. You could drink more than one.
