On-tap at the Great Lakes Brewpub

Red Right 88 is a pub exclusive released beer. It is listed as an Imperial Red Ale (not a category on BA). Considering its high ABV, I believe it should be categorized as an American Strong Ale instead of an American Amber/ Red Ale on BeerAdvocate.

A - Pours a dark ruby color

S - Toasty, sweet malts dominate the aroma. Very reminiscant of their seasonal Conway's Irish Ale.

T - Smell translates to the taste. Nice bittering hops also present. Listed at 88 IBU's, not sure if that is accurate, or just a play on the name. I would not have guessed the IBU's were that high.

M - Nice, dry mouthfeel. Very crisp and clean.

O - This is the amped up version of Conway's. Highly recommended for those who are fans of the Irish Ale style.
