This is a classic West Coast-style imperial red ale brewed with medium crystal malts, centennial and cascade hops. The color is a burnt amber with red highlights and the aroma has a spicy hop presence with moderate caramel malt accents. The taste is a smooth, malty one with a balanced hoppy finish that includes hints of sweet caramel

Bottle, june 17th. Pours hazy red/amber with a large dense off white head. Aroma is caramel, pine, resin, citrus. Taste us light roasted, medium sweet caramel and resin, increasing dry grassy pine bitterness ending in a lingering grassy bitterness with light roasted notes in the back. Medium bodied, sticly texture and average carbonation.

Mycket humle och sötma, karmaöuserat socker? Kraftig i smaken med bra fyllighet, lång beska i edtersmaken

Zekada (143) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Taste of malts and caramel. Has notes of berries and is quite sweet. Pours an amber reddish colour with a medium beige head. Taste is malty and sweet, somewhat bread-like and has kind of a dank feeling. Also some notes of alcohol. Palate is crisp and sweet. An okay beer. Not really appealing and the smell is the best thing about it.

Flaska delad med @msbrindbergs, tack. Mörkt röd med gräddigt skum. Doftar mycket sött, kåda, röda bär och en aning karamell. Kraftigt maltig smak med mycket bär, sötma och beska. Smultron i eftersmaken. Kanske lite för stark.

MSBrindbergs (348) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2014
Flaska från SB, Bromma Blocks. Dimmig röd vätska med ett gräddigt fint skum. Mycket bra humledoft, toner av körsbär och granskog. Kraftig i munnen med en sötma av röda bär. Beskan är fin. Ganska kolsyrad och lite sträv. Bra öl! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lilja (1646) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2014
Smak och doft av röda bär, humle, honung, ljus sirap, brunt socker, mango, passionsfrukt, granskott. Lagom sötma, alkoholen slår dock igenom en aning. Tydlig beska med smak av tall.
