Pours an amber, reddish hue, indicative of the style. Head is an inch thick and retains well, leaving average lacing.

Immediate smell is of caramel and bubblegum, with a strong lemon/orange citrus behind it. Candy-like combination of the citrus and malt is very, very pleasant on the nose.

Taste follows the aroma: caramel, brown sugar front, quickly followed by a tasty orange center. The orange is sweetened, not sour, and normally I'd prefer the latter, but here it works. Alcohol offers a bit of a harsh sweetness. Finish is bitter and a bit acrid.

Mouthfeel is harsh compared to the rest of the package, with the bitterness very strong (in a good way) for the style. Alcohol offers that warmth found in big stouts but not usually in red ales. Drinkability helped by the bitterness, hindered by the alcohol, but for a 9.5% abv beer this is incredibly easy to down. Overall a great red ale, and I'm happy to see it bottled in six packs.

Super fresh. One day off the line and into my snifter. Pours a ruby reddish hue with a decent amount of head retention. Not much lacing to speak of as the head dies down. Smells exactly like I would expect an imperial red to smell...malty. Some pineyness pulls through, but mainly just malt sweetness. The flavor is not what I expected. A lot of hoppy bitterness, piney, resin, some citrus, and on the back end lies that sweet malt flavor that is so pronounced in the smell. This is a great tasting beer and now I see it's 124 IBUs., packed with hoppy bitterness. One of the best imperial reds I've had, and at 9.5% you'd never know how strong this beer is until you've finished it. Absolutely will be drinking again. Cheers!

This beer was lucky to get a 3 from me........just way too bitter for a red beer. Smells malty and sweet so I was a bit excited, but just couldn't get past all the bitterness in this beer. Disappointed.
