3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Clear copper pour with a 1 finger foamy head that fades to a messy ring and leaves chunky lacing. Aroma has strong grapefruit, caramel, toast, and red fruit. Taste has a nice moderate sweet and bitter balance. Grapefruit peel, toasted malt, rye bread, light flowers, and light caramel. Medium body. Pretty good overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 16 oz can, hazy dark red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grapefruit, caramel, toffee into some spice, touch of red fruit. Taste was a mix of caramel, toffee, sweet orange, grapefruit, hints of bread, finishing fairly bitter. Interesting, decent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 ounce can. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours a mostly clear garnet red color with about an inch light tan head that stuck around for a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells mostly like citrusy (grapefruit, mango) and pine hops, along with some caramel malt. I think the taste is very similar to the aroma, but there’s also some graininess and citrus peel noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s slick and coating with a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good brew, although I’d call it an Imperial Red Ale instead of a strong ale. But no matter what style of beer you call this, it’s a good one. I liked it! $2.75 a single can.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can from Dutch’s into a snifter at home. Pours a clear deep amber with some reddish highlights and a large fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malt, a light toasted bread character, herbal, light citrus hops, mild to moderate bitterness, grassy, even a hint of wood. Interesting enough.
