3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fairly strong aromas of both hops and malt. Malt aromas include toffee, bread and grain; also just a hint of apricot.. Hop aromas are pine and citrus.
Color is a dark ruby red with a small to average off-white head.
Taste includes a fairly hefty bitterness and plenty of alcohol sweetness.
Medium to full body; alcoholic; average carbonation and a medium to long finish with the toffee and bitterness.
Overall I like the balance between the hops and malt; a big bold beer with plenty of both hops and malt.

On tap at St Augustineís in Vancouver. A world class imperial red ale, if somewhat overpriced at $7.95 a 14 oz glass. The high hop bitterness is nicely offset with big malt flavors. More later perhaps. 4

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver
Hazy red amber color, compact head. Moderate aroma of fruity hops, oranges and other similar fruits, lightly animal too. Bold structure, the sweetness is moderate, not excessive, the malt profile seem to reveal too much Crystal; the bitterness is very strong and the hops come with a quite harsh wood resin, just lightly fruity, and heavily roasted nuts; I find that these beers are almost buttery sometimes.
Aggressive, good, but a bit too much over the top.

Botted. Pours hazy, amber with a small, lacing off-white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, nutty notes and carame. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Ale indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Nice copper red color, head is smallish. Aroma fairly neutral, roasted malt. Big hops on the taste, not that much malt. Itís solid.

Donít get the high score on this one. Itís out of balance with too much malty alcohol flavor. Overall, an boozy bomber.

Complex = yes. Look = awesome. Taste = debatable. Not as hoppy as I had hoped.
On tap at Ballast Point in San Diego.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tongue torturing imperial red ale. Has a clean dark red look, piney, citrus hop aroma and some malty sweetness. Compared to its high alcohol, very drinkable and hardly feel any booziness. The bitter is very strong, but itís not harsh, rather enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an amber brown, like pekoe iced tea. Sudsy head hangs around for a while. The aroma is very mild, but there are notes of brown sugar on the nose. The flavor is much stronger than the aroma gives away. Thereís molasses and rich, woody, whiskey-like malt. Strong hops on the back of the tongue, but the finish is really clean. This is an aggressive, tasty beer.
