This is an imperial red ale brewed with two-row caramel Munich barley and Magnum and Williamette hops. The beer is a rich, malty ale with a ruby-red hue and a thick, frothy head of foam.

Cold tap pour into a snifter, at Mellow Mushroom in Fort Myers, FL. Coppery ruby color, tight tan head.
Aroma of malt and a note of caramel.
Taste is on point. Sweet and malty with enough of a hop to let you know it’s there. Little alcohol bite. Drinks bigger than its 8% ABV.
Feel is smooth, perfectly complimentary carbonation.
Overall - Brew Hub hit a home run with this nicely executed imperial red ale.,. Drink Local!!

Look: Thick and foamy head that lasts a while with small bubbles pouring up. The color is somewhere between copper and amber, slightly hazy.
Smell: Faint smells of pepper and grain. Not that strong.
Taste: Slightly sweet, has a similar flavor to a Belgian, just not as forward with the malts or the heat in that way. Almost a fruity level to the ferment that a coffee would also have. Hops come in on the aftertaste, mostly bittering.
Feel: The feel is not as viscous as I was expecting, since there is some sweetness the beer feels slightly more thick, but not at all like syrup. As I drink, there is some heat, at 8%.
Overall: I think this a fine beer, its evenly balanced, there is just nothing screaming unique about this one. I would drink it again.

copper color, with a sweet smell. Way too malty with a very strong taste of alcohol and strong hints of spices

Look: Deep, crystal clear copper body. 1 finger of off-white head with good retention.

Smell: Very sweet malt, like bubblegum.

Taste: Sweet milk chocolate and caramel. Very, very mild bitterness that immediately fades.

Mouthfeel: Average body, with high carbonation.

Overall: Not quite as powerful as I would like, and a bit TOO sweet.

Poured on draft at the Brewhub facility in Lakeland Fl. What a rich malty, creamy, hoppy brew that's absolutely a delicious red ale. Truly one of the best ones I've had. Dark Ruby red and you catch the malty aroma immediately. The malts offset the hops perfectly and hide the higher ABV quite well. Awesome!

As good an imperial American Amber / Red Ale as gets which along w APA is a favorite style of mine.
Well done with Florida water water everywhere.
a) Pours a dark brownish copper body surmounted with khaki head that lasts and laces. Dark.
s) Reflective of the malty aroma that dominates some neat spicy hops
t) Flavor follows abundantly, Big flavor masks ABV, but slightly too sweet for 2.
f) Mid to creamy body, nice finish, crisp, a bit oily.
o) Great taste-off version of the Red Ale.

12 oz can from FL with a 27 August 2018 canning date.
Pours with a deep copper body topped by a bone colored head. Decent lacing.
Rich malty flavor with a nice balancing load of spicy hops.
Medium-full body with a mild reflection of the 8% ABV.
Overall: recommended version of the style.
