King Crimson is an Imperial Red Ale that delivers a royal bounty of luscious, fruity American hops on top of a sturdy, deep red malt backbone. This beer is lavishly dry-hopped with Simcoe, adding a citrusy and piney flavor and aroma to the toasty, sweet malt notes. This special treat is a very limited Winter release, so enjoy it while you can!

Pours a very cloudy reddish brown with a dense head. Head doesn't last that long though. Has a nice hoppy smell. The taste is excellent with a nice sweetness, malty and then a good dose of hops. Stays on the tongue a good while to enjoy.

A - bubbly tan head over crystal clear red body. Very good retention and nice lacing.

S - Malti, doughy, and sugary

T - Deep, dank, citrusy an earthy. Malts are just sweet enough to balance and a perfect kick of alcohol gives bite to the finish.

M - medium full body with moderate light carbonation. Super smooth and creamy but also chewy.

O - i'm surprised how much I liked this. I have not been such a fan of peak organic in the past. But this is by far my favorite brew of theirs.Great flavors, nice and boozy, and great mouth feel.
