This is a beer brewed for the 10th anniversary of the brewery. This is an Imperial Red Ale that comes in 10%ABV and 77IBUs. Served in straight pint glass. The beer poured a dark brownish red with under an inch of tan head that had good retention and lacing.

The aroma was a good blend of malt and hops, both had a strong presence, but neither dominated. The taste was similar, with the hops being very sharp on the finish. There was also a slight alcohol taste to the beer.

The body was good, full without being heavy. Drinkability was very good, especially for a beer of this strength. If you didn't know it was 10% you wouldn't guess it. You should be careful if you're going to have several of these (which I did, and they were all very enjoyable).

Overall, a pretty good brew from a brewery that sometimes gets lost in the crowded NW beer scene.
