2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Red appearance, lingering head, great look to this beer.
Smell: Quite floral in the hop character.
Taste: Different from the nose, the taste of the hops struck me as perfume-y and bitter. I did not dig the heavy bitter lack of balance.
Mouthfeel: Pretty heavy body.
Drinkability: For every red beer fan like myself, Iím sure thereís someone who loves this. But for me, Shark Attack is just so, so. (Perfume-ey hops donít anything for me)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour pint at special brews. Pours a dark purple red color with a cream foam head. Spicey, malty aroma. Flavor.is heavy malt, light spice, and a roasted finish. Has a warming feel to it. I feel like this would be a nice winter beer, though itís doing just fine here in the summer heat. Lingering malty, almost cinnamon like finish. Good beer here.

Bottle. Red in colour, white solid head. Aroma of american hops, tropical fruits with notes of caramel malt. In taste malty, first caramel then fruity hops and solid bitterness in the finish. Medium to full bodied, smotth. One of the best American Imperial Red Ale (call it how you like it). Strongly recommend!

Bottle shared by Cuso at Bratislava Slovak-Austrian RB Tasting, thanks!
Deep copper, hazy body, with a massive, frothy, light beige head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, stone fruits, caramel.
Taste with about the same aromas, but with more caramel and biscuit and some more tea notes.
Medium, slick mouhfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter-sweet, a bit dry, zesty, piney, with lots of smooth malts.
Very nice. Great example of an Imperial Red, smooth and with a good balance. Pretty filling though, I would prefer a bit more drinkability.
