Draft at shortys NYC in Fidi. This is a very flavorful fruity hoppy and strong ale. Decent taste. Boozy as it warms. Can't believe I haven't rated this yet

Pours a clear, orangey amber with minimal white head. Aromaís of strong maltiness with a biscuit nose and some slight orange/citrus notes. Flavors are sweet with a very mild hop bitterness to clean-up at the end. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and fairly well-masked 8.5% ABV. A nice Imperial Red?

Beautiful red hue. First rating, new to beer snobbery. My pallet is just evolving, but I keep coming back to this one. Nice bitter sweet citrus opening, sweet finish, pulls the palette out to finiish.

P: Crystal clear ruby copper body with a dense off white creamy head. A few bubbles cascading toward the massive cloud of froth that stays for a considerable amount of time. Chunky lacing left behind.
S: Toasted malt base, faint caramel, orange peel, dank resinous pine, twiggy, and peppery spice. Slight phenol once warmed.
T/M: Rich toasted caramel and busquity malt, orange oil and the same dank resiny pine. A little wood on the backend with earthy dryness. Spicy orange rind alcohol comes in toward the end once the beer warms. Great slightly carbonated body that rolls across the tongue nicely.
O: This beer is a dangerous one. The ABV doesnít really show and itís nice and smooth. Creamy with citrus and resin combined in a flattering spice profile to marry with the rich toasted caramel malts. Affordable and delicious, a true winner.

Pours a deep amber red with a ligering head. Great red ale like a mix of killians and an ipa.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2013 Tasted from brown bomber bottle into a nucleated schooner glass, it poured a clear deep reddish amber colour with soapy, everlasting beige foam and sheets of fine lace. Very malty, caramelly, fruity, even more hoppy in a resiny, grapefruity, American C-hops style. Strong bitterness, flavour and aroma. Medium body, low carbonation, boozy and bready. Drinkable but definitely a hops-forward balance: intense aroma, bitterness, flavour, and lingering aftertaste. A well-crafted Imperial Red IPA, tastes exactly like California craft ale of our time.
