COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This imperial red ale takes the intense hop profile found in traditional double ipa and turns up the malt. It has big aromatic hop notes of grapefruit, peach, and melon--balanced by a smooth and surprisingly robust malt body.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Dirty reddish-brown, strong pine hop aroma with some sweet caramel behind, smooth, easy drinking but with a hop/malt wallop at the end that makes me wish I bought a whole case. Very good.

Nice colour & smell. However the flavour didn’t live up to the aroma, giving a slight anticlimax.

burg326 (4240) - Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2013
12 ounce bottle pours an amberish red with aromas of light citrus, caramel and some light cocoa. Flavors were huge on caramel with some light citrus in the aftertaste. Decent beer overall.

thebeertourist (5007) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle from Euston Tap. Copper red with a stable head. Caramel and chocolate nose. Decent bitterness to balance the milky chocolate flavours. Well-made, no doubt.
