Prepare to walk the plank to an Ale of overwhelming proportions. More hops & more malts than any land lubber can handle. After this experience...your tongue will be buckled. The I.B.U.’s (International Bitterness Units) are off the scale on this ale. Be forewarned, those with a timid palate, this is not a wee beer! Handcrafted in small batches for those sailing the seas in search of great ales.

markwise (4643) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2011
On draft at Hoptomic 2011. Thanks to the crew at Pourhouse for this one! Pours a dark red amber with a white head. Nose is malt, caramel, biting red grapefruit, and a hint of booze. Flavor is similar with lots of grapefruit, malt, and caramel. Medium to full-bodied with lingering grapefruit in the finish. Enjoyable beer.

TimE (3974) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 18, 2011
For me this is the benchmark of what imperial red should be. Marachino cherries, earthiness, oranges, brandy, rich malty. Great malty depth with moderate hop precense to balance things out. Alcohol very well hidden. Amazing beer. This is what an impy red should be.

nickd717 (3601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 14, 2011
On tap at City Beer. Pours a somewhat cloudy orangish-amber color with a nice lacy white head on top. The aroma is big and hoppy, mainly citrusy, with pine and apple of pine (a.k.a. pineapple). The flavor has a sweet malt base, with not as much caramel as I’d expect from an imperial red, but a nice citrusy hop profile of orange, pineapple, and grapefruit. Medium-plus bodied with great hop resins and a biting mouthfeel. Enjoyable overall.
