Imperial Red Ale Brewed with a plethora of crystal and rye malts and a touch of brown sugar to bring out the layers of malt complexity. A healthy dose of kettle hops followed by dry hopping with Summit and Cascade.

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2015
12oz bb:N/A, among idiosynkrasieís bounteous bottlebox. Smells of that typical high-octane crystal malts-go-sweet-orange-jam of many US-DIPAs, quince marmelade and its fruity damp resins. About the same in taste, mostly sweet preserved oranges or orange-shaped candy, dryish quince jam and beetroot sugar with a good coating of resinous bitterness. Drinks astoundly easy, without real abv heat or burn, while not really owning up to its 10% potential.

Strong marigold, pencil shaving, and pine needle nose. Cloudy rust, thin yellow head. Intense marigold and pencil shavings, overripe orange underneath and toward the end. Full body, moderate carbonation, boozy. Hop forward and strong, not as malty or balanced as I hoped.

alexsdad06 (7454) - Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2015
12 oz. bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big citrus , caramel, brown sugar, some resin, a bit boozy and the flavors donít play all that well together, just ok.

olio (8202) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2015
355 ml bottle.
Pours dark amber color with a small head. Sweetish apricot and orange on the nose, resinous hops, pine, mild caramel notes, faint bread and subtle alcohol. Bitter malts and sweet ripe fruits on the flavor, lots of resinous hops, mild berry-like residue on the background. Full-bodied, kind of aggressive and still quite balanced. Very good.

RexTalionis (3235) - FINLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Draught. Hazy darker brown, small off-white head. Ripe sweet garden fruits, brown syrup and wild strawberry sweetness in aroma, light vinous notes too. Quite soft mouthfeel. Sweet boozy malty notes, hints of slightly burnt fudge and dried dark fruityness in taste. Easy on the bitters here. Not much of the quite high abv either is detectable and thus the drinkability is scaringly easy here, and as it isnít too cloying either it gets a quite good score.

Tide (2442) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Draught at Kitty's. Dark red color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, caramel, resin, hops, mango and a bit of pine. Bitter finish with citrus, caramel, resin and hops. Good imperial ale, a bit too sweet maybe.
