COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blessed be! Our ridiculously big, hoppy I.P.A. returns to the rapturous exaltations of worshippers far and near. Featuring Simcoe, Amarillo, and Columbus hops at an unheard of rate of over three pounds per barrel, with American pale and Belgian caramel malts providing a malty but dry pedestal upon which this hop fest rides until its long, lingering,hop-bittered finish. Beware this vengeful, Old-Testament God. Say your prayers…

Plovmand (7052) - Helsinge, - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours hazy reddish amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma is sweet fruity and sweet berries with notes of malt and spicy hops. The flavour is sweet malty with spicy hoppy notes. Berries and spicy jam. Long fruity finish. Great! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AirForceHops (4678) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 19, 2015
650 ml bottle purchased at the brewery. Amber like color with some lasting head. Aroma is caramel toffee note, pine and citrus like hops.

The body of this beer is thick, sticky and sweet texture. Just a huge amount of caramel, toffee and sugar. The hops are here without question, pine and grapefruit with lasting bitterness after the sip. Honestly this brew feels dated, like in 2005 or 2006 this was a big killer brew, now it just seems like a overly sweet, sticky, massively hopped malt bomb. I’m leaning away from any IPA with a caramel malt base, I prefer a lighter clean grain bill.

thedm (5156) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 15, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated opaque except at the edges dark red brown colored body and a spiderweb lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The sharp mild citrus vinous crisp mouth feel was strongly tingly at the start and mediumly tingly at the finish with a strong hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of bitter mild citrus vinous crisp hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

monk191 (1332) - California, USA - JUN 13, 2015
A nice imperial red. Pours a muddy red with a disappearing white head. Smells of fruit, vanilla and hops Taste is similar, a good amount of vanilla with a well balanced bitter finish. Pairs well with rogue creamery smokey blue. Had in the bottle.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2015
On tap at the brewery after EBF 2015. Pours a hazed tawny brown with a thin beige head. Malt, earthy hops. Medium bodied, sweet and boozy. The alcohol and the overly sweet malt are intrusive and dominating. Long bitter finish carrying over some of the sweetness from the malt. Too sweet for me to enjoy overmuch.

ben4321 (4824) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2015
Location: 22 oz bottle from Nikki’s Liquors, 4/16/15

Aroma: The aroma is a toffee/caramel, some strong hops as well, pine, resin, earth, and a little berry
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish color, with a small fizzy/frothy beige head and drippy/streaky lace
Flavor: Has a nice, pretty balanced, the malty flavor balances out the big hop bitterness nicely
Palate: The body is medium-plus, nice and smooth feel, soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I really enjoyed this one. This is a very nice Imperial Red with a ton of flavor to it. It’s more bitter than it is malty, but the balance is there to make the flavor really quite nice. Heck of a beer. Nice job here by CBC.

Bottle. Red amber color. Aroma special malts, caramel, honey and fruit. Taste some wine, malts, dried fruit, warm and much bitterness in the aftertaste.
