This Imperial Red Ale beer is brewed with Magnum and Columbus hops then dry hopped with Simcoe and Columubs hops which gives it a nice citrus finish to the balanced malt characteristic.

This is my favorite next to their new Knight Changer Imperial Stout. I you haven’t had a chance to get down to Noble, you need to.

What a thick good-looking head. This is a nice beer that starts with a sharp bite. Smells okay. Mostly this is pretty good but actually seems a bit too strong at times.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 Pours transparent rosewood. Light, complex nose. Huge malty flavor with balanced bitterness and a big phenolic accent on the finish. Very impressive.

Reddish amber color, malty hoppy slightly cinnemon floral sweet aroma. Very smooth médium bodied. Slightly bitter citrusy Carmel hoppy taste with a hint of spices cinnemon. Very Good brew!

I really like this red. It has a nice creamy toffee flavor. It a nice easy drinking red.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2010
On tap at Beachwood BBQ: Pours a transparent deep amber orange with a nicely-lacing froth of cream-colored head. Has a pretty good fresh hoppy nose with some sweet caramel malty undertones. Starts with good body and fullness with pleasant sweet caramel and toffee flavors well-balanced with resiny bittering hops before a slightly drier bittersweet finish. Could use a little more assertive hop nose and flavor, but still a fairly drinkable and enjoyable imperial red.

kathouse (1627) - Nevada, USA - OCT 22, 2012
A reddish brown beer totes and handsome but thin off white foam. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar, and a balanced hop resin. Medium body. The sweetness is bold. Hop bitterness chases the swallow and a mild dryness finishes it off.

Bottle. Bronze beer with a dark cream colored head. Malt and toasted malt aroma. Malt and grapefruit flavor with pine, earth, and toasty malt. Medium bodied. Malt and caramel lingers with pine, grapefruit, and earthiness.
