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

Ungstrup (34634) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2005
[At GABF 2004] An unclear copper colored beer with a beutiful orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with some grassy notes. The flavor is surprisingly malty considering the aroma, but still with strong notes of hops, and the alcohol content shines thru.
