COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An Imperial Red IPA made with caramel rye malt and many other exotic malts. Made with very generous quantities of Summit and Newport hops, this beer is quite a balanced treat. Our brewers decided they wanted more out of an IPA so they used a Belgian yeast strain giving it a wonderful belgian like aroma.

Fat på CBC 2013. En Red IIPA med en mörk dov humleprofil, besk, torr, grape- och pomeranssmak och beska, mogna bananer. Saknar lite fruktighet och belgojästen märks inte. Murrig och besk. Bra men inte mer.
