Had this beer a couple of different ways. American hoppy red that is strong and delicious. On Nitro it’s dangerous, you can crush it.

4 oz chilled pour into a cylindrical tasting glass from tap at the brewery’s taphouse. Fresh as can be! Absolutely beautiful beer. Amber/ruby, clear, with a moderate and attractive head. Very malty and very hoppy. A hop-forward, well-developed, full-bodied, and aggressive beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Appearance is dark red with lots of head. Aroma is citrus, pine, and brown sugar. Taste is citrus, pine, mixed in with a sweet malty backbone. Pretty solid, nice balance of citrus, pine, and malty sweetness without being too syrupy or bold, alcohol is very well hidden...dangerous.

On tap at at Fox pub, Peoria.
Fresh tangerines in the nose with a little medicine (Pacific gem?) and faint grapefruit and pine accents. Hazy red-brown under an eternal tawny, lacy cover. Flavour is potent orange and strawberry hops, but then ethanol, blending into creamsickle. Hops bitterness is thankfully subdued, but present. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth and slightly warming.

Big, thick white head with dark golden colour. Smells of lovely fresh hops - big grassy aroma. Smooth palate with some fruitiness & a bitter but balanced end. A beautiful brew!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from can, copper red hue with thick creamy tan head, decent lacing, smells of caramel malt and leather yeast with some fruit hops, medium body, smooth and silky with light bitter aftertaste, alcohol well hidden, a little too syrupy and brown sugar sweet, some oak, tropical juicy fruit adds adds another dimension

Can - 473ml. Beautiful copper body with a thin, lasting, off-white frothy head. Robust hoppy aroma with malty, citrusy, cinnamon, and caramel hints. Alcohol is not too agressive. Its sharp, strong hoppy taste carries malty, oaky, brown sugar, and fruity notes. Ends with a long, strong, bittersweet finish. Well done.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From 16oz can, NC brewery, poured into 16oz tulip glass
Aroma: Big American "C" hops, citrusy, pines,
Appearance: amber, clear, big frothy tan head, good retention
Taste: Medium bitter, light sweet
Palate: medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, bitter dry finish
Overall: A really, really great Imperial Red IPA. Really enjoy the hop selection on this ale. The medium body highlights some of the Red Ale malts. While it’s big on hops and bitterness, the malty backbone makes it a well balanced beer. Loads of fruity, citrusy, and piney hops.
