This is an absolutely delicious hoppy red ale. Think a very hoppy version of great lakes Nosferatu. If you like imperial red's, and ipa's, this is a wonderful marriage of the two. If you happen to be lucky enough to see this beer on the shelf at your liquor store, do yourself a favor and pick one up.

16 oz. can dated 9/18/17

Pours foggy hazy amber red with a dense creamy light khaki colored foam head. Smells like gigantic grapes, berries, fresh grapefruit, orange citrus, lemon, blood orange, apricot, peach, mango, pineapple, toasty sweet caramely toffee roasty biscuity malts, with floral dank resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like roasty toasty sweet caramely toffee biscuity malts, grapes, berries, fresh grapefruit, orange citrus, lemon, blood orange, apricot, peach, mango, pineapple, with floral dank resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy and slick with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really great hoppy red ale.

This beer is Ruby red and pours a thick head that gives some nice lacing. You can smell the hops on this one and you will taste them too. very nice hop flavor that is balanced nicely with malts. It was a pretty full bodied amber with a thicker look and feel then most. Overall my first pipeworks beer but wont be my last props to them on this great beer.
