Hop Donkey Imperial Red Ale has a deep red hue thanks to highly kilned crystal and roasted chocolate malts. Intense hop flavors and aromas from a concoction of Northwest “C” hops with a touch of Amarillo. Hop Donkey’s 85 IBU’s are balanced by a smooth caramel malt character that keeps you braying for more.

Fatehunter (1759) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Pours one finger of clear dark straw colored body. The aroma is all pine. The taste is an excellent marriage of sweet malt and pine/lemon bitterness. The texture is thicker with moderate carbonation. It’s bold and nice.

bhensonb (12758) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Tap at Final Gravity in Roseville, CA. Pours darkly ruddy with a beige/tan head. Aroma of roast malt and pine. Med + body. Flavor is roasty malt with a chocolate note. Pine for hop. Some of it could well be citrus. Good dose of hop. Finishes not too dry, but nicely hoppy.

skoisirius (1882) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Second year Auburn has done this in the summer. Big and thick, piney and resinous Red IPA here. Lot of forward deep fruit on the malt tip up front. Pine, resin, dirt hop in the back. Chew on it!

krumbum (743) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Glowing hazy red. Nice piny bitter smells. Big hoppy front and bitter but blends and fades to a balanced finish.

marcus (7818) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 10, 2013
On tap at Capitol Beer. Pours reddish brown with a nice beige head and a smoky aroma. There is a full-bodied smoked malt flavor that starts sweet then goes to tasty bitter. A nice brew.
