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

Draught @ O’Brien’s Pub, San Diego, CA. Pours a hazy orange amber colour with a small head. Aroma of juicy orange fruitiness, floral notes and biscuit. Flavour of heavy juicy floral bitterness, biscuit, grapefruit and some weed. Rather juicy and hoppy finish. Not sure if red ale or not. Good stuff anyways.

Bottle shared with the crew. Big bold simcoe hops show in this one with an equally important malt backbone. Pine, dank, ctirus. Nice.

Kern knows what they are doing with the hops. Great aroma and sweet flavor. Bit of spiciness on the finish. Lots of grapefruit and big body.

Homer321 (2836) - Melboring, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2014
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.
