look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Imperial red big bottle shared with my girl consumed from tulips.
Appearance: The beer had a beautiful mahogany color with minimal clouding. Full finger off white head with modest lacing. I've had imperial red spin offs, but never a "straight" imp red so I have nothing to compare this too. I guess I was expecting a stickier red colored IPA. So far it doesn't look too sticky but it does look red.
Smell: It's clean and hoppy as expected. Lots of citrus mostly grapefruit. Maybe a some more bitter tasting oranges but mostly just grapefruit. No real pineapple.
Taste: The taste is of course hoppy and full of grapefruit. There is a definite sweetness to it. Reminiscent of caramel mostly. My partner was getting a musty but I didn't as much.
Mouthfeel: Light and effervescent. I actually agitated too much and killed all the carbonation in my glass towards the end and found I liked the flat beer slightly more than the carbonated beer. I think I really wanted this to be thick and sticky, and it wasn't. I'm not sure how this compares to style, but it didn't come out the way I was hoping.
Drinkability: This is a good beer and in a 6 pack format at a 7.99 price it would be a no brainer. Instead it is a big bottle (750 or 22 oz?) at 7.99 and I think I can find better IPA esque beers for the price or less.

3.55/5 rDev -11%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Bottled on 9/26/13.
Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, brown sugar, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with very earth forward aromas and flavors.
