COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

L_inconnu (64) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Belle couleur ambrée/rousse, pas trop opaque. Niveau mousse, standard pour le genre.. Question nez, on perçoit "ce qui est prévu" : une grosse touche caramel/torréfaction avec un final groseilles. En bouche, une explosion caramélisée avec une touche fumée en premier. Une impression de raisons séchés qui colle au palais, mais il faut avouer que ce dernier est limite HS ces jours

Bottle. Dark red amber with a big off white head. Aroma is piney and resinous hops and caramel malt. Taste follows suit and adds light citrus and substantial alcohol. Lingering spiciness and grapefruit in the finish. Sticky mouthfeel with solid carbonation. Big and tasty.

storskurk (94) - DENMARK - MAR 1, 2014
Humle og karamel i duft. Kastanjerød. Cremet tekstur og direkte humlesmag følges op af tilpas sødme, karamel og en bitter eftersmag. En smule underkarboneret. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
