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

650ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. Big full aroma, looks and smells like a scotch ale. Copper red colour with a sliver of foam. Full bodied and fills the mouth with a big hop flavour. This beer is awesome.

For Strong Ale fans, a perfect option. Description is right on...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...YUM!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet biscuit malts. Ruby brown minimal head. Hoppy almost rye malty. Long bitter finish. Heavy yet even strong hops, great beer.

Has a bitter edge with a heavy palate (and some sweetness). It has the layers of taste that separate beers of this quality from cheap and simple beers. It’s not a session beer- this is an excellent sipping beer.

Aroma is malty piney citrussty and swer almost like a candy apple. Pours since deep amber with a rocky head and laces nicely. Taste is malty caramel with enough citrussty to balance it out. Nice hops presence. Medium bodies and oily and smooth to the palate nice hops bite. Overall a great beer. Pitched this up in Seville Spain.

This is one of my very favorites from Pizza Port. Reds aren’t supposed to be this hoppy. I am very glad it is. This stuff will grow hair on your nipples.
