Tap - Sweet red licorice aroma with a pine hop back. Flavor is very sweet caramel malt with a bitter hop finish. Palate is syrupy and sticky. Not offensive but too sweet for me.

Sampled from the tap at the 2010 Indiana Winterfest. Poured a clear amber brown with a yellowish brown head. Aroma was full of citrus and spruce hops. Flavor was a bit more subdued with some malt coming into the profile with citrus hops at the beginning and pine hops at the finish.

a very yummy, albeit moderately mild, i.p.a. one of my favorite go-to beers, and one of the best new albanian recipes.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On Tap - The Trion! Impressive Beer!
Great Malty nose... well balanced with aromas of caramel and dough with a background of citrus hops.
Pours a fairly clear amber with a frothy, slightly tan head. Lacing was hard to judge because of the small size of the glass. (The flight paddles that the Trion offers are great to try new beers, but make for a difficult judgement on head at times.)
Taste and palate are immediately enjoyable... not overly sweet with a medium-full body and creamy texture. Carbonation was soft, which lent well to the style... finish was not long but faded enjoyably.
A very drinkable beer!

Pours ruby/amber with a tan head. Aroma is citrusy hops and a little bit of caramel. Flavor is nice blend of citrusy and earthy hops, with a nice caramel malt backbone. Pretty good.

Had this on tap last night at new Barley Island, broad ripple location, labeled an Imperial Red. Pours semi-clear reddish/brown. Nose is rye malt and hops. Flavor is clean, crisp, moderately hoppy and dry. Not a bad offering.

Draft at Barley Island Broad Ripple. Pours dark red with some brown hues. Nose is big with some toasted and candy notes. Full malt and citrus and pine hop flavor. Full and round, but easy to drink.
