On tap at brewery. Big meaty red ale, hoppy, malty, plenty warm. Perfect accompaniment with some food. Hope to see this beer fair well in the ratings, La Cumbre strikes again.

Growler from GHB. Thanks!

Dark crimson body topped by a tall eggshell colored head. Big nose on this stuff, loaded with sticky caramelized malts and resinous hops. There's a hint of onion to the nose as it warms, and plenty of malt but little sweetness. The palate instantly brings to mind Double Bastard, but this has a better hop character and less blatant booziness. There's a good bit of caramel malt flavor, but hops steal the show. Resinous, slightly citrusy and herbal, sharply bitter in the finish. The 8.7% is impressively well hidden; this stuff goes down easy for the strength.

This is one monster imperial red!

A very pretty cherry amber color with a thick white head that left a lot of lace.

The hops smack you in the face. Mostly herbal, a touch of citrus. Some sweet caramel malt.

At first sip you get the caramel, but the hops quickly take over. Lovely resinous, piney hops blasting away. A hint of grapefruit.

One hoppy beer. It tasted and felt so good.

Either I figure out how to get this beauty to Maine, or I'm going to have to move to Albuquerque.
