Notes/Commercial Description:
Pursuit of Hoppiness Imperial Red Ale is brewed to showcase the brash beauty of American hops: Chinook, Centennial and Columbus at 100 International Bitterness Units (IBU). The hops grown in the United States are considered to be some of the best in the world. Compared to their more traditionally subdued, elegant European counterparts, American hops are bold, bright, piney and zesty. This ale is brewed with Idaho 2-Row malted barley and German specialty malts to provide a rich, slightly caramel flavor and bold reddish color. At 22 degrees Plato starting gravity and about 8.5% alcohol by volume, this thick and warming beer is to be shared and savored.

100 IBU

A-Pours a hazy amber with a huge frothy off white head and massive sticky lacing.

S-Sweet juicy piney hops with good tangerine notes and a very nice malt sweetness.

T-Not up to the nose but still tasty. Grainy malt followed by nice grapefruit hoppiness. Less complex than the aroma but still nice.

M-Medium bodied, nicely bitter, medium carbonation.

O-Quite delicious. A fine hoppy imperial red, just this side of Nugget Nectar.

On tap in a pint glass at Barley's, Greenville, on 9/18/11

Faded copper color. Poured a thin head and thin it remained. Hardly any lace at all.

Aromas of floral hops, watery caramel and a touch of bread. Way tame and a little soapy. No brightness to the hops. Ugh, it tastes just as bland and boring. Floral hops and caramel smeared all over the place. Lacking in citrus and/or pine. Bitterness is low. Tastes kind of soapy, also. Medium body with moderately low carbonation. Something of a slick feel.

This isn't exactly a bad beer; it's just boring as sin. I'm glad I didn't buy a bottle.

Poured a capped 22oz bottle into my Hennepin globe.

This beer pours a murky reddish amber with a big 3 inch creamy head that leaves soapy lacing down the sides of the glass. The aroma is fa. Upfront is a nice mellow piney hoppiness intermingled with chocolate malts and a bit of coffee astringency. Just a bit of citrus lingers underneath it all. Almost tangerine citrus. The flavor is surprisingly malty. And not just malty, the profile itself is odd. I get quite a bit of chocolaty malts with just a bit of coffee astringency. The malt almost reminds me of a black IPA. I was expecting more of a toffee/caramel/biscuit type of malt backbone, this is not it. Good but different. I was expecting this to finish a bit dryer then it does. Fairly full and creamy. Overall, I just don't know about this beer. Not quite what I expected. The bottle on date is printed on the black instead of the white. It makes me wonder if the bottle I bought is old. I thought it was fresh due to the fact that my local just started carrying it. Will give it a whirl again when I can find a fresh bottle

Provided by dtx00 at a recent, small tasting. Thanks, Sam!

750ml bottle poured into a pint, split 3 ways.

A - Pours a ruby red color with highlights of rustic orange and cherrywood. It grows about 1.5-fingers of head with good retention. It leaves behind some lacing, but nothing incredibly special. The body, however, is beautiful, from the color to the almost crystal-clear transparency that paints everything on the other side a deep crimson.

S - Immediately after pouring, aromas of numerous hops waft up and fill the air. This apparently has reached the fabled 100 IBU mark, which definitely is impressive, especially for a style like amber ales, where very hoppy beers are not typically the norm. The hops here give a robust nose full of spice, earth, and of course lots grapefruit bitterness. Some caramel as well, but obviously not much.

T - I have to say, upon my first sip I was impressed. I've heard snippets about this brewery, but nothing substantial, but this is a great tasting beer. It has the bitter hoppiness like something a double IPA would bring, but also has a more complex base behind it with the malts, which are sweet and even nutty at times. From there, the hops springboard to the front, offering bold, rich flavors across the hop spectrum. The spiciness is something that I found myself liking, especially when complemented with the malts, and the strong pine and grapefruit and other citrus notes are always welcome. Just a tinge of heat in the finish.

M - Mouthfeel is moderately heavy-bodied with okay carbonation. A little bit more carbonation would have hit the sweet-spot, but it's not bad in its current state. Even after a single pour, my mouth and palate were starting to feel that numbness that hops sometime impart.

D/O - Drinkability is high. A complete dark horse for me, but I can't say I wasn't enjoying every last bit of this beer. It was refreshing to get a beer with the strong hop presence, but also with the fortitude to withstand that and balance it with the malt sweetness. I will definitely be keeping Grand Teton on my radar for the future.

Lumpy, slowly dying head (leaves a dome). Leaves plenty of chunky but spotty lace. Dark cherry amber color. Hazy.

Powerful, spicy hoppy aroma. There's enough malt for balance. Some alcohol to the nose as well.

The only flaw I detect is the thin body (watery). The carbonation is low. Wonderfully hoppy, you taste the bitterness throughout the taste. The aftertaste is dry, earthy and longlastingly bitter.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Dark red colored beer headed in the direction of brown. Small tannish head with a distinct orange color to it. Fairly unique first orange colored head I have seen.

Smell is sweet and strongly hoppy, quite intense. Oranges and mint with grapefruit and pine. Redman Chewing Tobacco and wine grapes with a distinct sour fruit scent. Say what you want about this beer but is intensely aromatic.

Starts out very dry, muddy and woody with a slight bitter aftertaste. Mushroom and pine with some orange oil. A little bit of caramel and toffee peaks through after a while but this is very dry beer.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall good, but could be better. Too bad this doesn't taste like it smells. If it did I would brush my teeth with the stuff.

pours red. more red then expected for sure. quarter inch white lacey head that hangs out for a minute or two. smell is in your face hops, fresh hops even? why are you so red? looks like a Cascazilla, but more subdued in a way. mouthfeel is THICK, like, borderline chewey. tastes like I've had this before, not remarkable from a quality or creativity standpoint, but represents an alternate avenue for the hopeless hophead. wouldnt buy it again, and struggled to drink a whole one, but oddly content...

Huge thanks to davidbowers13 for this beer.

A: Pours a ruby red with hints of brown. The beer is a little cloudy with 1 finger of head resting lightly atop it. There is some serious lacing as this beer drinks.

S: Smells mainly of fresh picked pine cones. There is a bit of sweet malt hidden in there, but it’s mostly hop aromas. Maybe a tiny bit of citrus, but no huge grapefruit scents in this beer.

T: It tastes like fresh piney hops with a perfect balance of malt to not make the bitterness overwhelming. From start to finish this beer tastes the same. It’s just a ton of great hop flavor that never really overpowers. There is always just the right amount of sweetness.

M: I’d have to say that this is a full bodied beer. It might not be a stout, but this beer is seriously thick. The hops in this brew dry out the palate after a few sips, but I keep wanting to come back for more.

O: I think this is a fantastic brew. There is a simple play between the elevated hops and the subtle malts that is perfect. However… I think Nugget Nectar is better for the style.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a deep deep orange and leaves excellent lacing down the glass.

Smells of citrus/tropical fruits with some heavy caramel malt backing it up.

Taste follows the nose. Heavy caramel notes throughout. Citrus, tropical fruits and some pineapple really cut through all this malt leaving a resiny lingering finish.

Mouthfeel and carb are average for this style.

One of the better Imperial Ambers I've ever had. It reminded me a lot of Nugget Nectar. It's got a lot of caramel malt, but the hops are definitely high enough to make their presence known. Fantastic beer.

1 pint, 9.4 oz. bottle.
Bottled on 5/15/2011.
This particular batch comes in at a striking 8.5%. Just where I like an "imperial amber".

Bottle poured into a 22 oz. Hefeweizen glass with the rest of the bottle chugged down after pour. (blasphemy!)

Beer was chilled down lightly for a 15 minute stint in the freezer after being chilled in open 60 degree New England Autumn air for about 5 hours. Hefeweizen glass spent 10 minutes in the freezer as well just to get some frost haze on her and keep the nectar within cool while I sip it.

Pours a deep orange-like red reminiscent of the Fall leaves which are beginning to fall here in Massachusetts. Due to the slow angled pour and the chilled nature of the beer, a good head was not properly procured.

Smell is mainly of tropical citrus hops, buttery caramel malts, and pounds of tropical fruits (nugget nectar comes to mind. hence the imperial hoppy amber trademark)

Mouthfeel is a medium to medium light feel. Resins coat the mouth, but no creaminess to be found per the style.

Taste is predominately spiky citrus and tropical fruity hops, with a slight astringent flavor coming in afterwards. Middle of the taste has a butterscotch/caramel malt with a fairly hoppy, yet still buttery finish.

Overall, a good example of an Imperial Amber. Nugget nectar is slightly better, but considering the year round brewing of this beer, I'll definitely come back to it at some point.

This beer pours a nice reddish orange color with a large head. The smell is hoppy and malty. I can pick out some piney and earthy hops. The flavor follows suit with the typical red ale flavor followed by a wall of hop flavor that you would not expect from a red. The mouthfeel is a little fuller Han expected with good carbonation. Overall a very good beer

750ml Bottle into a Killian's pint

A- Pours a hazy golden-orange color with 3 fingers worth of pillowy, almost khaki colored head. Leaves awesome lacing.

S- Big mix of sweet juicy citrus hops and a really sweet malt backbone shines through with some caramel qualities.

T- Hugely sweet malty presence here. It almost overwhelms the hop characters of the beer. The juicy citric notes try to break through a coating of malt, but are barely perceptable. A lingering bitterness is all that really tells me that hops are here.

M- Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Helps to move the flavor along.

O- This is a decent brew, but not deserving of an A- in my humble opinion. A little too sweet for my tastes...especially with a name like "Pursuit of Hoppiness".

1 pint, 9.4 oz bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass...

A: Pours a hazed, copper red, with one finger of light beige head; leaves some thin strands of lace and manages a good bit of retention throughout.

S: Rich caramel malt; nutty? (hazelnut??); fruity / citrus hops; quite malty with some woody notes, too.

T: Pineapple hops; toasty grains and sweet caramel malt; its a hoppy brew, but the sweet malt almost overpowers things; smooth and sweet; there’s a touch of roast near the end, too.

M: Near full-bodied; moderate carbonation; a touch of puckering bitter hop bite late on the finish.

D/O: I like this style and this particular beer; this one’s just a bit too sweet - guess that’s what differentiates an imperial red from an imperial IPA, though; mid-range drinkability for me.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours deep amber red color with a bit of haze, one finger off-white head that doesn't hang around long - leaves some webbed lacing here and there. Smells of sweet fruity hops and a bit of earthiness (yes the hops are still there) - all mellowed by a caramel-like malt backbone - very sweet all together. The flavors are balanced nicely here but I'm getting less hops than malt - still getting a nice bitter kick at the end of each sip - sweet, hoppy, and malty goodness. This beer has a medium mouthfeel, well carbonated, and a slight burn on the back of my tongue from the alcohol which was surprising. This was a delicious refreshing beer to begin the winding down of a hot and humid day working outside - it reminded me of Odell's red ale which is a damn fine beer.

Enjoy!

From 750mL bottle to Great Lakes stemmed pint glass on 8/9/11
*From notes

A: Cloudy and exceedingly hazy brownish amber. A generous pour yields an everlasting 1.75 finger head and chunky lacing.

S: Malty, yet juicy notes of fresh West Coast style hop oil are at play. A mild run of damp earth is detectable as I inhale deeper.

T: The balance here is on point. It's so well put together, it's easy to miss a lot of the nuances. Medium toasted malt and tropical hops find a happy medium on the fore to mid of my palate, as a subdued wave creamy minerality surfs onto the finish. Such an awesome and laid back brew that doesn't ask anything of the drinker but to sit back and enjoy.

M: Slightly sharp, though the medium to full body weight is more then enough to carry it through.

O: Grand Teton's Pursuit of Hoppiness is a damn fine Amber Ale. It absolutely deserves to be mentioned as one of the best in-style. Everything here comes together in a wonderfully rich and easy drinking package. Great stuff - I heartily recommend you check this one out.

A chilled 750ml bottle is poured into a pint glass.

Reddish copper liquid fills my glass, with a large off-white foamy head on top. Plenty of great lacework is left behind as the head settles.

Crisp, grassy hops can be smelled. Also present are some warm, sweet malts.

The beer begins somewhat sweet, with pale malts and candi sugar. Grassy hops appear as I swallow and linger on. It isn't as hoppy as I expected it to be; and although it has been chilled, this beer doesn't feel so cold as to dampen the hop characteristics. It is a subtle bitterness, but a good one.

Although strong, this beer is hardly sticky and has a body on the lighter side of medium. It doesn't feel like an Imperial level beer, which is impressive.

I like this beer, but I was hoping for something a little hoppier. Despite that, I am enjoying it and would drink it again.

Poured into a stone nonic. Two months old which is much older than I'd like but the youngest bottle I could find.

This once was a deeper red with some powerful brown hues. I got a nice hop whiff when I first opened the bottle. Sadly as I poured it and smelled it, it came off with a little all-purpose cleaner chemical touch to the bitterness. The taste was a mix of wood, citrus, caramel malts and tons of plain hop bitterness, and sadly the chemical bite to the bitterness was still there-- it was small, but quite unpleasant. Overall I found it to be good, and I'll write off the weird chemical taste as part of having a two month old bottle, but I'd definitely take, for example, a loakal red over this in a heartbeat. A solid, basic example of a very hoppy red, but it really lacked interesting character or complexity.

Thanks Charleston Beer Exchange!

A - Pours a brownish amber with a great inch+ head with excellent retention and lacing! Great!

S - Appearance and smell and getting my really excited to dive into this bomber! Smells strongly of floral and citrus (orange) hops. Nice sweet caramel malty backbone!

T - Tastes good, but doesn't quite meet the lofty expectations that the look and smell had set. A bit tart and quite bitter. Citrus heavy hops and caramel malt balance nicely - not quite as sophisticated a flavor as I had hoped but still very good and the finish is very bitter, which I really like.

M - Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation

O - Pretty good hop bomb a decent better imperial red

Bottleshare and tasting with Alucard4, BHOBS and DarthKostrizer.

Look: Brownish red in color with a 1/2 inch tan head and ok retention and some lacing

Smell: Beautiful floral and citrus notes from the hops are right up fromt. The backend carries traces of caramel orange zest definately tell its a west coast beer by the smell

Taste: While there is not alot of different flavors in the beer caramel and fresh citrus comes to mind what makes this beer a really good red is the balance of hop to malt.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and slightly high carbonation and is a tad bit dry

Overall: This is just another really good beer from Grand Teton's. It has tremendous balance a good flavor and smell profile and is incredibly easy to drink

T- Roasted malts, caramel. Citrus flavors come through in the middle followed by a nice balance of hop bitterness.

M- Medium bodied. On the lighter side of carbonation with a nice smooth finish.

O- Nice imperial amber. The citrus notes and hop balance really make this a good beer.

Pours a deep reddish brown color with a creamy khaki head that dissipates slowly and leaves a little lace in its wake. Smells of old school IPA. Sweet caramel malts mixed with juicy citrus and grapefruit. Hints of pine and resin and a bite of toffee especially as she warms. Taste is caramel sweet malts with more pine than citrus, exactly opposite what the aroma lead me to believe. Finish is moderately dry with a long lingering pine and resin bite. Medium body and carbonation level, slick resinous mouthfeel. Nice Ipa, I mean red ale. Taste is good, but its hard to justify the price tag when there are so many other great red/ipa's out there. Put this in a 6 pack and charge me 10 bucks for it, not 14+ for the 750, this beer is just not that special.

The beer has a candy apple colouring and bright auburn highlights, it's a very approachable and aesthetic beer for sure, especially given its clarity (provided you can see through the deep tone). An average amount of head produces an average of lace.

The aroma has such a raw hoppiness that it smells almost grossly herbal, a stinky and pungent scent that has such bitter resins that it smells genuinely plant-like, like some sort of strangling, carnivorous vine. There's little elegance about it, hardly any floral accents or fruity overtones, and any toasted malt is buried deep beneath all the pungent herbals.

Hops are no doubt important to any full-flavoured American beer, especially those reaching for 'double' or 'imperial' territory. But some brewers have the self-control with them of a teenage boy about to lose his virginity. This beer is so inundated by raw hop taste that, despite floral notes and a caramel flavour, it has the spiciness of ginger and the bitterness of steamed greens, tasting distinctly plant-like and possessing an obnoxious, choking vine-like quality.

The beer suffers a great imbalance: it has little redeeming zest for all its bitterness and yet simultaneously far too much sugary sweetness. Some bruised fruit flavours appear in the form of alcohol esters but they are chased away by the pungent bitterness. The taste again is that of stale ginger, with none of the usual candied citrus or sweet toffee tones lingering.

I've thought very highly of every other Grand Teton offering I've had to date, but Pursuit of Hoppiness is a rough-around-the-edges beer that, like I said, showcases as much command of its hoppiness as a teenage boy about to get lucky for the first time - this brewer clearly blew his hop load early with the kettle hops, leaving a lot of bitterness and not much aromatics. There's little gratification in something this big and bitter if it doesn't please the palate.

Grand Teton pursuit of hoppiness imperial red 8.1 abv

A: This beer is amber with reddish blood orange hues in the center, medium lacing, and a solid amount of middle carbonation.

S: The smell gives off sour notes from the hops almost akin to a bitter cherry, it doesn’t seem herbal it’s like a tart raspberry/citrus note to it.

T There is a mild tart front with a big hoppy herbal backend like biting into a black cherry with a herbal center, and WE HAVE ALL BEEN THROUGH THAT. The fruit notes lead you back to their dorm room but then you see the blacklight posters and hear the Cypress Hill mp3s playing and you know, the herbal is the underlying aspect.

M the mouthfeel is a bit thin for the style but still good overall. It gives it solid versatility in hot weather, very drinkable and it comes off like a solid into beer for people who have an aversion to all out double ipa’s but would tolerate something a bit sweeter. Poseidon pulls some tricks and a trojan horse maneuver leverages your tongue to take big glups of what turns out to be a bitter beer.

D: This is tough to just because this is where the balance is a bit subjective; because if the hops and mild tartness is cloying you likely won't be on board for many of these. However if you enjoy the borderline lambic meets ipa feel is something you are into, you'll be reaching for more. This doesn’t come off like most imperial reds, it has an interesting character to it and it should be allowed to reach into the prize chest. Oh, spider ring, yeah the prize chest is pretty much all spider rings.

Narrative: The first day of 9th grade was especially trying for Thomas Caraway. Tommy Hilfiger overalls were not only dated, but also a wildy unacceptable fashion decision in a world of waiting derision. “HEY FARMER TOMMY WHY DON’T YOU SU-” He learned to tune them out and calmly stride to Geometry with the cool poise of a 14 year old who just wasted $120.00 of his parents money. It wasn’t that he was a bad kid, he was sweet enough, it was just a question of leadership. He wasn’t a follower, but he set himself out as more of a chairman without a board. Thomas was a bold innovator in a market that abhorred change and friction. He pulled out his iphone and began to ironically play Puddle of Mudd around other kids in the cafeteria, much to their chagrin. When he was sweet, it was irascible, when he was bitter, it went too far. He was a strange kid but, you never could really dislike him for it. However, his bucket hat justifiably got struck in the genitals on not an isolated occasion.
