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.

On tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a deep amber with beige head. Aroma is full of resin and some grapefruit. Flavor has plenty of spice; sure makes the name appropriate! Delicious hoppiness full of resin and some citrus. What stands out the most, though, is the surprisingly thick, creamy mouthfeel. With plenty of spice and hop bite, this makes the finish stellar.

This poured a darker orange to red color with a beige head. Aroma was lots and lots of resinous piney hops, some toasted caramel malt too. Flavor was very dank, bitter and resinous hops, definately a good name for this beer, on top of a somewhat balanced caramel malt body. Another great one from ballast point.

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.

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.
