Revolution Red Skull
This was described to me as an imperial red ale, I was unable to gather info about its abv and such.

A: clear bold red, thick dense creamy head, lots of lacing, great retention

S: earthy floral hops, caramel, pine

T: luscious hops paired with load of caramel, a bit of caraway character
Pine needles. Everything is in harmony... No excess bitterness

Mf: smooth, silky, creamy, delightful 

O: this is a harmoniously balanced imperial red. Delicious.
