look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

A tall can because everything's bigger in Texas! Pours clear copper red with a creamy tan head. The smell is floral hops with a caramel undertone, sort of a souped up pale ale. Taste is sharp, definitely hop dominant. The hops are a bit piney and the finish is dry and sharp. This thing is like a knife covered in razor blades. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy, nice "heft" to it. All in all, I like this. It's a bit rough around the edges and a bit one dimensional, but it manages to soften things up a bit with the malt and the alcohol warmth. Its a good beer for a spring day, so who am I to argue?
