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.

22 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy deep amber to clear, depending on level of the bottle when pouring as there are yeast sediments. Aroma is mild liqourice, pinewood hoppy with a light roasted caramel malt note. Sweet and distinct bitter with a light acidic to citric touch. Mild roasted malt presence on the back of the tongue. Ends dry, bittered and slight spiced. Good balance between body and bitterness into the finish. Lasting mild citric fruity note.

madmitch76 (22102) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2009
2nd May 2009. Amber beer, hops dominate. A little malt at the start is quickly overpowered by smooth hops. Just a little bitterness. Overall a smooth hoppy beer just about held together by the malt base.
