Pour produces a massive head, that forms into a plateaued peak above the liquid. The head is cream-colored, foamy and persistent. Reminds me of the foam from a root beer float. Somewhat cloudy liquid, amber with brown hues. Shows steady carbonation.
I get a lot of citrus on the nose, some sweet malts and maybe even some vanilla. It's slightly stale, which may be the result of the shipping and wait to drink it.
I get a slight offtaste on the tongue, something metallic and stale. Again, the wait may be to blame. Something earthy in there as well and the citrus is not present. There's a slight spice in there and some floral hop flavor.
The beer has a tiny hint of astringency, low-to medium body and some creaminess. It doesn't taste or feel like an imperial beer.
I'd say it's an average imperial red, although I'd have to try it fresh from the source to know for sure.

great beer overall.
initial taste is very smooth with piney hops and a citrus grapefruit aftertaste.
with it's high alcohol content, it is a very unsuspecting beer.
12 dollars will buy you a 4 pack of 16oz cans. at first I was very skeptical, but after my first taste I could immediately detect high quality ingredients as well as a lot of hard work put into a very well thought out beer. I will definitely be drinking this beer more often.
