12oz bottle to glass; rec’d in trade from umich03jm. Good beer; just not my style. big pine and grapefruit in aroma. very nice caramel/amber pour. Taste is pine/grapefruit with hops at end and lingering - balanced but too much hops for me (and I hate grapefruit); Thanks for the trade, Jason!!

Alcohol and malt win over hops. Clear reddish amber. Full mouth feel and fine lacing. Leans to the red, amber, style of beer.

Nice copper color. Aroma is definately hops, mostly spruce, a touch of floral. has a touch of rye IPA smell. Taste is IPA but not as bitter or punchy as the 11% would suggest, I was honestly suprised that this site says 11. Bottle says imperial red, but this is definately an imperial IPA.

(Not a hop lover) 12oz to snifter. 2 month old bottle. I cannot discern hop aromas, but it is very much all hops in the aroma. it is a beautiful deep copper color. The flavor is much like a malty red ale, but with a hop kick in the pants. I actually enjoyed this.

Interesting beer; smells like a DIPA(and it is hoppy)but doesn't have the bite of hops you'd expect. It has a nice boozy warmth at the finish.

Bottle. Pours a bright amber color. The aroma is mostly hops. The taste is rather mild compared to the aroma. A nice subtle hoppiness that finishes clean. Don’t get much of the base red ale that is suppose to be there which is fine with me. This one is better than I was expecting for sure.

Thanks for sharing, bro! Pours a dirty red color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is medicinal, caramel malts, resinous hops. Taste is like a barley wine.....medicinal, chewy caramel and toffee malts.

Bottle... Poured dark amber with a thick forming head. Nice bitterness and resinous spiced hop flavors. Strong hops tones and a bitterness to back it up. Bitter rind and citrus skins added a nice dimension.

Bottle. Pours copper with a thin white head. Big pine/citrus hop aroma with a touch of caramel sweetness. Moderately sweet malt flavor up front followed by a great pine and citrus hop profile. Nice bitter hop finish with a touch of alcohol. Very drinkable, the alcohol is well hidden.
