Poured into a fat wine glass.

Dark, dark amber body with a thin almond-white head. Looks like it's going to be serious.

Quite a bit of malt on the nose for an IPA. Sweet caramel really dominates the hops, though there is some pine in the mix.

As advertised, pretty much right between a red ale and an IPA. Roasted sweetness attacks and coats your palate, eventually giving way to a bitter hop aftertaste.

Defintely full bodied, but the booze is nicely hidden for something over 7% abv. Taste sticks around for a while.

Interesting enough. Glad I tried it, but won't make it a point to have it again.

A - Red and dark copper with no head or lacing.

S - Intense grapefruit, and citrus hops this stuff smacks you in the face. In the background is carmel malt

T - the most intense grapefruit presence ever witnessed! It's like chewing on a grapefruit rind. WOW. The carmel malt background is there and takes this beer to the next level.

M - thick and chewy

D - I wish I didn't get hoppy beer hangovers but I do. Otherwise this beer would be an all day event for me.

Thanks to Daysinthewake for this one

App- This pours a murky looking deep orange with browns and ambers. Really cloudy with a good 1-1/2 finger head that fell to an amazing cling. 

Smell-  Its a weird smelling beer. Like a fat tire malty sweet intermixed with some deep grapefruit and bitter hops. 

Taste-  Again this is a interesting mix of  styles. Really has a deep malty flavor and a touch sweet like an amber but has a good backing citrusy grapefruity bitter note. A bit too malty but still good. 

Mouth-  Soft medium bodied with a low/medium carbonation. A bit of a spicy bitter creamy flavor residual flavor.

Drink-  A nice little beer really. I get the blending of styles and this psuedo IPA is pretty tasty but just a tad too sweet with a small bitter level.

On tap at the Tap Room in the Coddingtown Whole Foods in Santa Rosa.

A: Dark red, amber color. Nice thick head, about an inch thick. Great lacing.

S: Floral, citrus notes. The pine is definitely prominent. There is a nice caramel backbone to the scent that you only get with red ales.

T: This is considered an Imperial Red Ale and it lives up to it. The hops are strong, but you still get the base amber ale. It is not lost in bitterness.

M: Thick. The Hoppy pine resin completely coats your palate.

O: Who does Third Street Aleworks think they are? This is delicious. Until now, I have never thought anything they made was great. Solid was the best they could achieve, but this knocked it out of the park.

Side note: They are currently out at the brewpub, but the Whole Foods had it. I found that amusing.
