COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So, we have a new beer; an Imperial Red Ale dry hopped with Summit and Simcoe. What are we calling it? You guessed it, Dirty Hippie. It weighs in at 8%, 95 IBU and has a whole lot of hoppy goodness balanced with a nice malt backbone that you would expect out of an Imperial Red. Does it really smell like a dirty hippie? Come on in, grab a pint and decide for yourself.

This beer pouts with a nice off white head. On first look it has a beautiful red/ amber color. The nose is amazing with a very floral hoppy sent. It tastes amazing. A very nice hoppy imperial red ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet smelling and lightly grassy. Pour is a cloudy red with small white head. A bit roasted in the flavor. A tad sweet and roasted and the same time. Ok.

Bomber from IrishBoy. Thanks man!! Pours clear copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma is roast malt with pine. Flavor about the same with some mixed hop indications. Nice hoppy amber - mild hop burn - but smoothly done.

Bottle thanks to Irishboy! Pours clear reddish amber with a small tan head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is that red ipa smell of caramel, citrus and pine, not getting a ton of simcoe. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel.
