Cask gravity at GBBF 2015. Dark red beer not much condition almost made me gag. Some red fruits. But not a good drinking beer. Hops yes but almost made me wretch.

it has a strong citrus and hop flavor, which is one of the main reasons I didn’t rate this beer hire. It has a strong floral and fruity smell. It poors a dark reddish/brown color

Great beer with an amazing aroma that I detect strong fruity smell, floral, stone fruit. When you take a sip you immediately get the resin, citrus, grapefruit. Very nice beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ap - 4 - This is a reddish brown clear beer that has an off white head that leave nice lacing.
Ar - 8 - Nice caramel malts balanced by piney, citrusy hops. Very sweet smelling. Great Imperial Red aroma. Reminds me of G’Knight.
T - 9 - Oh man, this one is good. The citrusy, orange zest, grapefruit hops start, with nice sweet caramel malt in the middle and piney, citrusy, bitter grapefruit on the back of the tongue at the finish.
M - 4 - Medium-heavy, full bodied. Alc covered well. Aftertaste is bitter grapefruit and sweet malt.
O - 17/20 - What can I say, this is a great beer. It’s about the same price/oz as OB G’knight, and honestly, I’d have to have them side by side to figure out the subtle differences between the two. Great imperial red. I’m glad I had it.

Outstanding! Just a pleasure from beginning to end. Gorgeous amber/red color with cobwebby lacing. The nose is rich and malty with a nice resinous and floral hop scent. The flavor is massive. Bitter right up front but quickly turns into velvet...almost buttery. Then the hops take over at the end. Easily one of the best beers I've had in a while. I'd come to Albuquerque just to drink this again. Good thing Marble fills growlers from other breweries.
