Misc.: BLAH called it a Red Imperial Ale, Beer Advocate called it an American / Amber Ale and Rate Beer called it an American Strong Ale

Poured a dark red mahogany color with 2-to-3 fingers of deep khaki tan head when I got it. Average amount of sporadic uneven lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention.

Smelled citrus hops, floral hops, earthy malts, caramel, toffee and faint rye hops.

Taste was pretty bitter with what I’m sure is a lot of IBU’s. Hoppy - resin, floral, citrus and grapefruit. Still kind of earthy, but not as noticeable as the smell.

Medium body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.

A pretty good beer overall, although I got three different descriptions (see Misc.). I think it was closest to the Red Imperial Ale, which was what I assumed and rated on anyway. Either way I’d have it again for sure.
