Brewed with royalty in mind, no expense was spared in crafting our Imperial Red. Generous additions of our favorite hop varieties blend harmoniously with long layers of dark caramel malts.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2011
At the Santa Fe taproom. Dark brown-red. Thin head. Lots of earthy caramel and brown sugars on the nose, with big citrusy, fruity hops. A little bit sticky and yet overattenuated at the same time - weird. The mix of dark malt and citrusy, fruity hop isn’t quite as bright on the palate as it is on the nose.
