caramel maple and slightly roasty maltinessand citrusy hops balanced along with a pear type aroma..nice clear dark red/bronze brown color pure white head dissipates to quarter inch ring..tastes bitter but with a strong maltiness much like an east coast ipa..strong citrus and piney hops along with the malty flavors mentioned in the aroma,more of a smoky roasty flavor than smell however..very easily drinkable and it was a pretty hot day so it warmed fast..maltiness more pronounced as it warms..overall excellent ipa for any season and as always extra points for costing under 10 bucks for a 6 pack

Had this with MereLikesBeer. Poured a medium brown with tan head. Aroma was a good mix of hoppy and malt. Not quite as good as their IPA, but still very good.I would get this again.Cheers!

On tap: Dark orange. Sweet candy malt aroma, a lightly nutty and toasty malt flavor with a light citric note. Sweet and barley wine-y but not cloying at all.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ap - Pours with a frothy, three-finger thick, tan colored head and leaves a good bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. The beer is a brilliantly clear, concentrated amber color.
Ar - The aroma is a heady mix of malt, but mostly hops that is noticeable as soon as I start to pour this brew. Notes of candied orange peel mix with citrus flavored caramel toffees, some notes of apricot and even some tangerine notes. There is a tiny bit of alcohol in the nose as well, and when mixed with the citrus. A touch of herbaceous pine rounds out the aroma. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale.
P - The beer is hefty enough, as it tends to linger on the palate and even has a bit of stickiness to it.
T - The beer is sweet and malty up front, which really amplifies the fruity-citrusy hop notes. However the hops are the dominant note in this beer, with notes of red grapefruit, apricot and tangerine found up front. Towards the end an herbal, almost pine like, solid bitterness starts to take hold and lingers on in a long bitter finish.
O - And the beer is not so thick and rich as to keep this from being pretty drinkable. It has a definite warming effect like a trippel but with more hops. A very nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear orange-tinged red, slight head, no lacing. Aroma is vinous, herbal, earthy, caramel. The sweetness is well balanced by the copious amount of hops. Very rich, complex flavor, nice finish. I would consider this to be an Imperial Red IPA. This beer has some balls!
