3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Brown/Copper and hazy on the pour. Caramel and light sweet aromas from the pour. The drink is intensely full bodied with a combination of malty,sweet and alcohol flavors all in one punch. Slight bitterness on the after taste. Not my favorite but somehow i found myself going back to it.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours opaque red-amber with a thick light tan head. Aroma is sweet malts and faint pine hops. Wow. The malts and hops are on equal footing with this one! The first taste is chalky thick malts. Everything seems to come together in the mid palate - an interesting malt/hop blend. The hops really show in the finish with an insidious bitterness. Awesome red ale!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: pours clear, deep amber, reasonable sand colored head, some lacing. Small bubbles of carbonation form an interesting pattern along the surface. Nose is cooked caramel, toffee, toast, butterscotch and herbal hops. Full bodied. Biscuit, pine, caramel and crystal malt sweetness, molasses, cedar chest and some varnish flavors. Pine hop bitterness and varnish on the finish. This has a little heat but overall, solid big red ipa.

Thanks Scott! Hazy orange red white head dissipates quickly. Aroma of strawberry twizzler. Bitter sweet toasted malt earth and still strawberry twizzler. Hoppy and sweet.

Bottle from Randy. Pours a deep maroon. Aroma is boozy.. caramel, pine, grass. Taste is slightly fruity but shortly overwhelmed by hoppy bitterness. Super boozy.. tastes like 14%. Not the most pleasant imperial red iíve had.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Split Thy Skull at Mugs BK. unclear red. Big skunky funky hops with sweet ripe fruit in abundance along side spice and booze. Flavor is very sweet, hop resin, deep lasting bitter, vegetal, spice. Sticky gritty palate. Great beer, not super complex.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Luekenís Liquors. A smooth mouthfeel, with an initial maltiness followed by a pleasant citrusy hop finish. Well integrated blend of malt and hops, the perfect imperial red beer. Another master craft from this brewery.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a glowing amber color with an orange hue and whisps of off-white head. An orangey hop strength hits you before your nose reaches the glass; quite hoppy with a sweet aroma. Those bitter orange hop notes are immediate in the flavor and carry through, while the beer is also full bodied and moderately sweet...the finish is slightly earthy and with a roasty-coffee note.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours deep copper with a one finger white head. Medium lacing. Aroma is wonderful. Doughy bread. Like an early morning bakery. Taste is rich caramel with a bitter end. Chewy. Spicey lingering aftertaste. Excellent.
