4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/1/2013. Pours slightly hazy reddish orange color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balanced hop and malt notes; and great strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, floral, grass, herbal, light pine, and floral earthiness. Light earthy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, orange/lemon zest, caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, floral, grass, and herbal on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of bright citrus hop and deep malt flavors; with a great hop/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy, slick, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent imperial red ale! All around great complexity and balance of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
