3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shaker pint at PP OB. Clear auburn with a one finger creamy beige head, fades to a creamy thick film. Big tropical fruit nose atop some rich sweet caramel, light scorched toffee. Flavor follows suit, plenty of the sweet malts to balance the fruity hops. Semi-dry with bitterness peaking at a 6, some alcohol noted. Low prickly carbonation with a full body. I’m not a big fan of the imperial reds due to the malt character, but this is solid.
