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.

22 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has some dank hop notes as well as a little cotton candy. Caramel malts come through after the hops dissipate. Light nuts and toffee, too. Transparent amber body with a small to medium cream-colored head. Starts with a bunch of earthy, dirty hop flavors. QUite bitter, actually. There’s a little caramel malt sweetness in the middle with some tannins. Finishes with more of the earthy hop flavor and some cotton candy hints, too. Quite hoppy, and quite bitter. A little much.

650ml bottle from phesterjau. Orange reddish pour with an off-white head leaving some lace. Aroma has tangy pine, citrus and sweet malts. Taste is of sweet caramel, tangy pine, bittersweet citric fruits, light stone fruits and some sweet red malts. The blend is solid, the body is medium, the carbonation is throughout and there is a slight alcohol presence. Finishes to the sweet side of that bitter-sweet scale. This is hoppy version of a classic American Strong ale. Sweeter than most as well. Tasty! 14.2

(En fût à la brasserie): Des malts épicés et sucrés, une résine abrasive sur un lit de terre sèche. Très amer et alcoolisé, comme si c’était un peu plus robuste. Les premières gorgées étaient pus agréable que les dernières.

Tap @ Toronado. Pours hazy amber with a small, frothy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is literally a dirty hippy. Flavor is a refreshing mango, citrus, and vanilla with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation

Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. Grassy and herbal hops, mild sweetness, faint booze, and moderate bitterness. Fine, but not great.
