Bottle: Poured a murky amber color ale with a large foamy head. Aroma of resinous and earthy hops is balanced against some sweet malt notes. Taste is a mix of light grapefruit notes with some earthy and resinous hops and huge sweet malt backbone. Body is full with good carbonation. Can’t say I really enjoy the hops varietal used in here and malt backbone was too sweet for the style.

A very balanced red ale. Not overly malty or bitter. This beer has gotten better every year with little tweaks.

Pours a slightly hazy coppery red color with off-white head. Pine hop aroma, caramel malts, and grain on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a great caramel malty note

Good, solid beer, bought it because of my love for catching redfish and dont regret but wont seek it out again.

Edit: I am going to seek it out again lol, at the time I wasnt used to imperial ales, now that I have grown to enjoy more of this style I am going to try this one again.
