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.

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

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.

On tap at Kuhnhenn Brewpub. Copper with a creamy tan head and continual lace. Aroma of the forest with woody resinous notes, pine, fruit and some Belgian Yeast and esters underneath. Taste is fruity and a bit hot and cloying with some resinous hops and yeast. Finishes on the bitter side with a mild burn.

dogfish120love (1003) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Pours an ugly murky brown with barley any lacing. Fruity esters, alcohol, and caramel. Not the bitterness is subdued by an alcohol burn. A little messy and all over te place.
