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.

4.18/5 rDev +7.2%

16 oz can poured into oversized tulip glass.
A - Pours a murky copper/brown with orange around the edges when held up to light. The head is massive and creamy off white.
S - Earthy piney hops and caramel sweetness.
T - Sweet and malty up front with caramel, followed closely by bitter piney hops. A bit too bitter for the style I think. Grapefruit hop bitterness lingers.
M - Super smooth and creamy. The head is very fine, and the silky mouthfeel is great on this one. Moderate body, moderate to low carb, silky smooth.
O - My first Martin House brew, and better than I was expecting. A good take on the style with a great mouthfeel. A bit one dimensional but still tasty.
