On tap at the public house in Las Vegas. Pours cloudy brown with off white head. Very bitter and citrusy. Leaves quite the aftertaste. Too sharp tasting for my liking.

Strong Ale 2012. Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Sweet toffee, brown sugar, and toasted malt aromas. Some chocolate as well as floral and herbal hops. A hint of tea, too. The flavor is somewhat herbal with a strong hop character. A bit of chocolate, some toffee, brown sugar, and toast. Light hop bitterness and a nice floral note.

A new imperial red beer, this is quite tasty but is a bit more abrasive than the alpha dog double red. Plenty of hops and a full body, I’ll have this again.
