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

Nice creamy head with a medium amber body. Smell is malty, with the taste to match. Not as much hop flavor as expected in a red "ipa", but what's there is nice and piney. Overall, a pretty balanced beer leaning a bit more to the sweet side. Mouthfeel is right on, not too heavy and very drinkable for the high abv.

12oz, canned on 03/30/18. It's been a few years since I had this one, and somehow it never got a review.
Reddish hued ale with a tall & frothy beige head. Rich aroma of bread crust, caramel, fruity citrus, and pine. Huge pine and citrus notes pair with equally huge caramel, grain, brown sugar, and bread crust. Full body with plenty of resinous hop oils sticking to the palate, assertive bitter finish. Just as good as I remember. One of my favorite beers that is relatively easy to find if the season is right.

Pours a nice copper color with a slightly reddish head that recedes to a ring, excellent lacing. Aroma has some pine, toffee and some caramel, flavors match the aromas. Nice creamy texture, good carbonation. Not exactly what I expected in an Imperial Red IPA, but this is a damn good beer.

Medium brown golden color, looks more like an ale. “Red.” Solid red IPA. Delicious hops balanced by malt, but not overpowered by malt.

Pours a deep amber with a cream head. Aroma is a rich pine and caramel. Taste is very much the same. Am I tasting crystal malts? Feel is medium - high carbonation. Overall, I wish I had a 6 -pack of these bad boys.
