this one suprised me. that is why is pays to get the whole flight.....I would never pick an imperial red based on the name alone, but now I know better. pours a deep red with a nice sized head that stays put. good maltiness and hopiness- better balance to me than the deviant. More drinkable. Hops come through but don’t bully the other ingredients out of the way in this one. still really a red ipa to me, but really good.

Can (16oz $3.80): Golden red with one finger head. Great aroma. Description pretty accurate... sticky, and malty. Somewhat sweet. Only a slight bitterness. I think it should have a little more bitterness to balance out the sweetness..

1 pint can poured into pint glass. Great aroma and appearance. Didn’t deliver on any flavor for me, but it was alright.

It poured a hazy light copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of light malts with citrus, pine and a little caramel. The taste was of caramel, herbal spices, mango and some pine/grass bitterness with a little bite. Tasty.

Have had this from a tallboy can and on draft, both at BD Brum, Aug ’13 and May ’14. Pours clear rich deep ruby, cream head which stays reasonably. Nose of rich bready biscuity malt, darkish caramel, some berry fruit and lots of resinous and citrus hops. Tastes sweet burnt sugar and caramel, big bitterness too, perfect balance really. Lots of citrus and piney aromatics. Medium full body, oily. Great beer, really enjoyable. Super-drinkable considering its strength.

poured a clear garnet with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, pine, and some earthiness with a hint of citrus. Palate was medium bodied, dry and slightly resiny. Flavors of toffee, mild licorice,pine and some earthiness with a lingering, dry, bitter finish.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014 Fantastic foamy light tan tall head with dark Amber color poured from 16 oz can. Lots of lacing that last forever. Great mouth feel and tons of flavor with very fine finish. Definitely a beer I will have many times again.

Poured from a coupla two tree tall boy cans into the pint glass, nice foam and good red look. Just enough hops to be smooth, and doesn’t taste as strong as it is, but it is. Glad you named it after a brother.

This is a superb Imperial Red IPA from CO that is right up there with the best strong IPAs in the front range. Stronger than Dale’s Pale Ale and up there with (Titan and Myrcenery, double IPAs). Not as much Hop nose as Myrcenery, but no big deal. This kills Odell’s Double IPA but is a close second to Odell’s Myrcenery Double IPA, Two Strong IPAs I’ve tasted recently from the mile high corridor. Drink one and enjoy!
