American Amber / Red Ale |  7.90% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed to celebrate 100 years of the oldest hiking trail in North America, the Long Trail. This ale features a slightly sweet malt flavor delicately balanced by the use of centennial hops. This bigger beer goes down smooth, please indulge with moderation.

Our Imperial Red Ale has the traditional characteristics of a red ale with the addition of an ample amount of hops and a higher grain bill that yields more sugars during the brewing process; resulting in a higher ABV.

60 IBU

Pours out a dark red color with some slightly copper colored head. Some booze present in the aroma initially but also a lot of sweet caramel malts. Fruity as well from the combination of yeast and malts. Some dry and borderline earthy hops. Somewhat slight citrus but I think any hop aroma is masked by the strong malt bill. Very sweet and dark fruity off the bat but becomes citrus/earth bitter for the finish. Drys out nicely and leaves a strong dry finish. Not thick but heavy from the malt body most likely a high OG. Drinks easier than expected.

Deep reddish brown colour with a creamy, dark beige cap. Good head retention, plenty of lacing. Grapefruit aroma was apparent as soon as the cap was popped, followed by caramel, bread, a hint of pine and oranges, and slight alcohol. Bitterness was tempered by caramel sweetness up front, but finished strong. Citrusy notes and a spicy finish rounded out the flavour -- simple but effective. Medium plus bodied with creamy carbonation, alcohol warmth, and slight astringency. Nice balance overall and quite tasty.

Dark reddish copper body with a nice thick and foamy white head. Big malt nose; slightly spicy hop fragrance. Warm, toasted grains with a peppery hop profile mid-sip through the finish; peppermint. heavy body; smooth with a fine carbonation.

A well-balanced, complex and very flavorful ale. All the sensory components meld together nicely. Malt sugars and hop bitterness dance well with each other, plus a fully-present but not over-powering alcohol burn adds an extra dimension to things.

Picked this up at the Market Basket in Claremont, NH a about four days ago. Too bad I tried this the night before flying back to Colorado, otherwise I would have picked up at least one more to enjoy before departing the region.

Pours into an imperial pint glass a clear deep amber with a half finger light tannish colored head that settles pretty quickly.Piney hops really stand out in the nose along with some earthiness and mild roast,not much sweetness.Flavors are quite hoppy at the onset with pine resin to a lesser extent grapefruit notes,again it's quite dry for the style with a little alcohol and caramel detected.Not bad the finish is a little abrupt but this has a nice hop profile.
