3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on tap at the Pyramid Ale House Sacramento on 4/12/2012. This American Strong Ale pours a medium copper color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, caramel, bready, hoppy and sweet. A medium bodied Imperial Red/American Strong Ale. The malts are fruity, caramel and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Decent carbonation. Nice balance, a good malt backbone that is balanced with a nice hop bite. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Draught. Rather like a ruby hued IPA. Citrusy and floral aroma, very restrained. Medium bodied, Hoppy like an IPA, with some herbiness. I noted no chocolate notes. Hop finish. Good on a cloudy day
