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.

From notes. First reviewed 1/12/2011. Served on tap at Kuhnhenn in a tulip. The tulip arrives with an amber brown beer inside, with a thick white head that slowly fades to a ring, leaving spots of lacing down the sides of the glass. Sweet candy, bubblegum, and citrus and herbal hops waft into my nose. It definitely has a more robust aroma as it warms - some alcohol, floral and more herbal notes peak through. The flavor starts out with some caramel malt, candy sweetnessm and citrusy hops. Bubble gum and some Belgian yeast, there is such a champagne like dryness here, then some herbal hops pop through. The feel is dry and lightly sticky, with medium carbonation and a fuller than medium body for the style. With its high ABV, this is definitely a sipper, and this was an enjoyable example of a Belgian IPA. I would definitely like to go back and try this again, Belgian IPA’s may take a few tries to get the full flavor.
