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.

Vignale (2242) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2013
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.

wchesser (1267) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2013
Trade extra from FlandersNed-thanks, Steve! Dec. 12 bottle. Dark golden brown with no lacing. Nose is a little banana, bubble gum, and some spice. Spice and sweetness and rustic rye is present in the taste, with some orange citrus. Bitter hop finish. Good, and alcohol is well integrated, but palate is pretty fatigued from the hops at the end of this one from the hops.

This one poured a dark amber to red color with an off white head. Aroma was light citrus, some dark fruits, and belgian spices. Flavor was similar, a strong belgian ipa, hops pretty subdued in taste, just balance out the sweetness of the best of the beer. Ok.
