10 Heads High is loosely based on our awesome 2011 Prototype beer Hops Kill Nazis. This is an uncompromising 7.7% Imperial Red Ale loaded high with American Hops. Think of this as an Imperial india Rd Ale, or a super-charged version of 5am Saint. Either way this is a seriously good beer!

33 cl bottle @ home. Batch #096, BBE 26.04.2014
Aroma is musty with some baking stuff, some resiny notes and fruits. Also hints of berries. Flavour has lots of resiny notes, some spiciness and odd metallic off-flavour. Feels a bit woody. Harsh.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours a hazy brownish-red, under a low creamy sand-colored head. Bold hop nose. Citrus and tropical, and some green aromas. Well-bodied, warming and smooth. A lightly sweet and toasted malt base, nicely balanced by a good amount of fruity and resinous bittering hops. An honest, well crafted and tasty beer.
