L: Deep red, small carbonation. Good sized head faded quick leaving thin but faded lace.
S: It's malty. Thats all I could detect. Maybe a little sweet grain at the end.
F:Creamy. Not very bitter. Full swallow, almost like syrup.
T: The high ABV and the sweetness of this to be "Imperial" detract from what should be a decent red. Sweet gumballs is all I could come up with.
O: Wow. Reviews of this have been outstanding. It's a nice, strong tasting beer, but misses for me in calling it a red. Imperial yes, red, not so much.

Pretty decent red ale but maybe a bit too sweet. Reminds me of their Old Chub to a certain extent. Likely a very similar recipe. Old Chub for example is a bit too sweet and cola-like, even for a Scotch Ale.

As good as an imperial red as you will find - hearty malt backbone with lots of bready, amber malt with lots of classic, PNW oily / bitter hops to round out the flavors

Pours a murky, brownish red with a one finger, creamy, off-white head. Has plenty of carbonation and leaves nice lacing all the way down the glass.
Smells of imperial funk, citrus, pine, malt and spice.
Taste follows the nose. Great combo of malty red and lots of funky hop. Some brown sugar and candied fruit. Slight cherry.
Nice oily mouthfeel compliments the funk. Slightly dry finish.
Wonderful example of the style
