Welcome to the holidays! Double Red IPA arrives each year as the weather turns cool and our cravings for winter warmers begin. This Imperial Red Ale has an intense hop aroma with well-balanced caramel malt sweetness. The intense American hoppiness builds on the substantial malt backbone to deliver a full-flavored beer with a ton of complexity.

#200! Bottle. Pours a clear dark coppery color with a substantial, rocky, beige colored head, beautiful lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, floral hops. Flavor is pine, grapefruit, orange, strong malt backbone. Palate is full bodied, sticky, resionus, bitter, yet sweet, creamy, yet crisp finish. This is quite a mouthful! Works for me!

Tmoney99 (12406) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2007
Bomber bottle at 42 F. Poured clear dark amber color with medium frothy off-white head that was that lasted with excellent lacing. Solid complex sour citrus and pine hop aroma. Medium to full body with smooth texture with soft carbonation. Full citrus, malt and spice flavor with a sharp bittersweet finish. Good brew that is a standout.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2007
22oz bottle pours dark copper with a thick rocky tan head that stays very well and laces in big sheets. Aromas of nice pine and grapefruit hops over some good caramel malts with a touch of sourdough bread. Flavor is good pine and grapefruit but also a lot of pineapple and orange flavors as well. Some caramel backbone to hold it all together. Palate is very barleywine like.. Good body and smooth. I couldn’t find any alcohol in this one... Another fantastic brew by Alesmith.. This brewer never disappoints!

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2007 Wow, fantastic. A very nice malty and hoppy beer with a dry finish. A great bittering essence to the beer. I really cannot put into words how satisfying this beer is. Caramel-sweet malt, huge hop complexity. God freaking hell damn fuck.... not astringent bitter, just smooth bitter- if that’s possible.

22oz. bomber. Clear copper color with a medium sized beige head. Really nice hop aroma with some pine and a bit of citrus, along with a sweet malt background that sort of reminded me of cookie dough. Flavor was very well balanced between the mostly piney hops(with some tangerine) and the toasted malt with lots of caramel. Medium-full bodied, with the alcohol barely perceptible.

Bottle; Big pine and citrus hop nose; Gark copper colored with a huge, glass- lacing cinnamon tinged head; malty flavor with caramel and some hop bitterness which develops into a nice bitter hop finish after 10 or 15 seconds.

Up to this point its the best beer I’ve had. My third Alesmith and the first one that had me fully convinced. A great ale from a great brewery.

Bottle courtesy of gears81. Thanks, Jake! Pours a clear, orangish-red appearance; off-white head with good retention. Aroma shows a mix of citrus and piney hops, dank and sweet, with a chewy malt backdrop (showing maple syrup and caramel). Slightly dry, red-ale character comes through in the mouthfeel: lively carbonation, plenty of chewy hops (pine character, esp.), with a dry, warming maltiness keeping things balanced. Lengthy finish.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle: Reddish copper in color with a rocky off white head. Aroma, earthy, pine and citrus, with some caramel to back it up. Flavor, caramel, and toasted malts up front, followed by a nice bitter kick to finish. Really tasty stuff.
