COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously known as Winter YuleSmith.

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.

Voodoo (546) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours a reddish chestnut color with an energetic head, actually a tad too energetic, and lingering.......aroma of earthiness, sweet malt.....taste is heavy bittered malt, serious mouthfeel but not sweet. For a bigger brew it has a nice crisp finish, with a touch of earthiness at the tale end. Quite a well built brew.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2016
Bomber from vinmonopolet - Pours a dark red hue. Full aromas of spiced bread, grapefruit and slight caramel. Flavor has tons of complexity, bitter and hoppy up front, but with spices, caramel, dried stonefruit and peaches in the finish. Very complex and very good. Recommended!

anstei (1015) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Intense red IPA indeed. Nutty and heavy, full and meaty. Lingering finish. Well hidden booze in the pleasantly balanced beer.
