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.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - 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.

j12601 (9565) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2015
On tap at Kunhenn. Pours a clear orange and copper tinged amber with a thick creamy tan head that falls quickly and laces the sides. Huge citrus on the nose. Medium bodied, big warm alcohol lurking in the background with thick malt and sweet citrus. Long slow bitterness on the finish, citrus and sweetness.

On tap at the brewpub. Amber pour with an off-white head. Nicely executed combination of hops and Belgian yeast is the aroma and taste. Outstanding.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2015 Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Beaming copper body with a super fluffy, frothy eggshell head; creamy & long-lasting. Aroma of spicy pines, hop resin, white pepper, spicy Belgian phenols, vibrant yeast, hints of coriander, a touch of bitter soapiness, & a faint kiss of mild green onion grassiness. Mild sweet malt underneath. Flavor is full of those bitter pines up front mixed with spicy Belgian yeast, mild phenols, & a dash of clove. White pepper, semisweet toasted caramel malts, & grassy hops make their way in shortly. The green onion note is there, but a little more muted. Plenty of finishing hop oil & mild resinous tones near the finish, lasting with a dose of caramel malt sweetness & spicy Belgian yeast esters. Very slight touch of booze. Nearly sticky body.

Draft - Sweet caramel, vegetal hops and dark citrus. Clear copper with a nice white head. Dark caramel, bubble gum and sweet fruity hops. Candy like and sweet with a touch of booze in the finish.

ARH (1118) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2014
On tap, poured into a shaker. Bubblegum, caramel, grain, and tangerine aromas come through on the nose. It pours a dark, murky orange-brown with a big, off-white foamy head that retains a thick soap ring with a soapy island and leaves a messy lace. The taste is a medium high sweet with a medium bitter. It’s creamy and a bit sticky with a full body and a soft, fizzy carbonation. Bubblegum, caramel, rye, and sweet citrus flavors come through and it finishes with a spicy, clean, and crisp cola flavor. More citrus comes through on the finish as it warms. Roasted grain, caramel, citrus, and cola swell late and linger in the aftertaste.
