4.02/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: a very nice looking, clear, ruby red beer with slick hoppy bubbles hanging around the rim of the glass at the top of the beer.

Smell: very nice. Citrus, pine, resiny hops with a bit of bready malt in there as well. All subtle and not very strong but well integrated together.

Taste:a nice mix of the citrus and pine/resin aspects of the smell with a nice "red" malt flavor as the base. A dry, resin and spicy finish that lasts for awhile.

Mouthfeel: nothing special here, medium body, slighty syrupy and astringent.

Overall: a very nice beer. I love the smell- great aspects that mix well and are subtle and not overpowering. A great mix of hop flavors over a good base of malt. When i started drinking this i was assuming 7-8%abv, was somewhat surprised to find it was almost 9:5%. As i drink more of it the abv becomes more apparent but not in a bad way. I only bought two singles but hope to pick up a few more or maybe a 6 pack before it disappears. Hope the they make this regular or at least seasonal offering.

Bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Code on bottle reads "3132", assuming day 313 of 2012 (bottled 11/11?). Consumed & reviewed on 12/11/12.

This beer pours a nice deep amber color with 1/2 inch of cream-colored head. Nice aroma on this one: spicy hops, a bit of citrus fruit, and cereal-like malt presence. This offers a lot of balance on the palate: a bit of alcohol heat, along with significant hop presence (simcoe?), and an equally strong malt presence.

Good, but not great, offering from 2 Bros. It has echoes of HopSlam with the balance & relatively low heat, but not as complex. The mouthfeel could use a bit more bulk.

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.

Quickly becoming a favorite.
A lovely red imperial ipa. Love the hops but the balance of malt keeps them in check. Abv is high and can be tasted. But not a kick in the gut. It'll creep up on you. 22$ for a six pack is salty and why it's not my top beer. But within the top 5. Go! Get some!

I am continually surprised at the brew quality of two bros, if you are a fan of their atom smasher beer / red ales in general you will enjoy this beer

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!
