Comes in between that imperial red ale and barleywine categories. For being unfiltered it still looks good. Crimson. Still has that red malt peat and earth thing going, but the hops keep it from being a one trick pony in that regard. Pink grapefruit.

Taste is a good mix of a heavily hopped, bitter beer with red malt throughout. Mild sweetness, isn't overly thick or heavy in the mouthfeel. I mean, for all that red malt, something I'm not really into, this is one of the better examples of a hoppy red. Its not Loakal Red, but its not all that far off, just the next tier below. Hides alcohol well.
