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.

Draught at Blind Tiger. Pours beautiful clear copper with a medium foamy white head. Smells of spicy yeast and hops. Tastes fairly bitter of ryle malt and some hops. Bitter finish but pleasant.

Fukito (733) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - FEB 16, 2013
Copper/ Bronze color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is caramel with some hops. Flavor is bittersweet, with a slighlty bitter aftertaste. Palate is on the sweet size, so not as easy to drink. Kind of expected a little bit more of these, more of a belgian medium hopped red ale than a Belgo IPA.

UDBeernut (1600) - Near Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle from mikem409. Pours mahogany with slight red twinge, zero head. Nose of citrus and pine. Taste has this plus solid malt support and a pinch of clove. Body is solid, bitterness is lasting.

hamilton23 (604) - Alpine, California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Poured from 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper with no head at all. Aroma has some Belgian yeast and just a hint of dried fruit and caramel. Taste follows the nose pretty closely, but really lacks much punch. Seems to me like this is wrongly categorized as a DIPA, as it seems more like a Belgian ale of some type.

Bottle. Pours a nice mahogany with no head. Aroma is hops with nice malts. Taste is somewhat bitter rye malts and hops. Well balanced.

355ml bottle shared by jsprime. deep amber, flat. banana and sweet malt nose. not a fan of kuhnenn’s house belgian strain. flavour of sweet unfermented wort, minimal hops. not well packaged and pretty much a train wreck.

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Really digging this one. Pours dark but clear orange with some lacing, head. Aroma of tangerine, floral hops and malt. Medium consistency. Bitter and florals and booze in aftertaste - good complex palate. Tap at brewpub.

Similiar to a pirat in flavor. A big malty belgian ipa, not my favorite hops, it is alright though.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Tap at Barcade: Deep hazy amber pour with an off white head. Big fruity and resiny aroma. Citrus, tropical fruits and crystal malt. Velvety body. Has a big resiny flavor and some tropical fruit notes. The back gets a little inky. Some crystal malt body is apparent throughout. Not bad.
