Our Galactic Imperial Red boldly goes where no Red has gone before. We gave it all the Centennial and Cascade hops we’ve got to bring the floral and citrus flavor and aroma to Warp 5. With a rich caramel malt structure strong enough to withstand any blackhole and a warming finish that can stave off the cold of space, one sip and you’ll be calling it Number One.

650 ml bottle poured at home. Pours a cloudy brownish color, like iced tea. Smells like citrus hops. Taste is bitter throughout. Not what I expect of a red ale but drinkable. More like an ipa.

Rich dark amber pour with a foamy head. Gorgeous lacing. Has a nice range of flavours from pine, grassiness, wheat, straw, floral hops, and a nice hop bitterness. Big malt flavours and a big abv back this up nicely.

A tangy and a grassy aroma accompanies this burnt sienna liquid, cutting through the thick, soft, off-white head. There is a touch of citrus, but not as much as I have noticed in other comments. The grassy, earthiness in the aroma slices through the hops and a toasty biscuit flavor surrounds my tongue with such a balance! I love this Imperial Red. A medium, creamy body glazes my mouth and coats it with a mildly malty bitterness that’s sure to impress. Enjoying this and will be happy to give it a thumbs-up!

(22oz bottle) Pours a clear orange body with a medium cream head. Aroma of caramel, bread, cherry, raisins, toffee, and honey. Flavor of caramel, toffee, grass, pine, and citrus with a dry, bitter finish.

vyvvy (4777) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at the brewpub - Pours copper with a beige head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit, tropical fruits and solid toasted malt backbone (it’s really heavy on the pineapple aroma). It has a full body that is still a touch crisp and has soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with sweet caramel malt, pineapple, mango and passion fruit. The finish is big on hops and even bigger on the malt. This comes across as a big beer and delivers well.

Draught @ Hopworks, Portland, OR

Malty, citrusy and quite hoppy imperial red ale with some sweet pine and resinous notes. Pretty good.
