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

Flaska. Aldeles för mycket kolsyra. Hur tänker bryggeriet? Det här är inte bra. Doften svag men trevlig. Smaken tunn med alkohol o alldeles för mycket kolsyra. Eftersmaken bra med fin beska.

Cask at the 2014 GBBF. Ruby red amber coloured pour with fleeting head. Aroma is big caramel and resinous hop, with cotton candy. Flavour is nice red caramel, nutty malt with resinous pine. Some orange peel. Palate is full and sticky. Hop.
