Our aggressive Imperial Red Ale is a massive mix of smooth malts and West Coast hops that have no patience for the lupulin leery. This crimson beer starts with caramel-like malt flavor that canít suppress the assertive, citrusy hop finale.

Burnt wood notes in the aroma along with earthy notes. Clear copper/amber color with a light tan head. Scorched sugar and molasses sweetness followed by a creamy vanilla flavor. The alcohol becomes very evident at this point along with a good bitter earth/forest hop presence. A bit of butterscotch in the back along with more charred wood notes. Finishes dry and sweet with a lasting bitterness.

12 oz bottle from a trade with BrewJay. The pour is brown ruby copper with a large three inch light tan head that falls slowly and rockily. The aroma is caramel toasted malt along with softer pine floral hop resin. The taste is the caramel malt mostly, though the resin and bitterness of the hopís are in the back and the finish. The palate is medium bodied, a bit chewy, the bitterness and a bit of alcohol is in the finish. Nice take on a style I donít normally love. Thanks Jay.

pour is hazy brown, creamy khaki colored head. smell is fresh malt and some honey and citrusy hops. Taste is very fresh and sweet . mouthfeel is nice lively medium high body. finish is lasting bitter hop, almost metalic. overall tho, a very good replacement for traditional lunch. Warms the belly but the alcohol isnít really present in the taste, just be careful! I was going to try to rate all three of the beer camp beers in one sitting, but i have a feeling if i do iíll turn into a giant piece of dook. Itís almost Party Bus time! wooooo

12oz bottle 9/27/13 (Binnyís Downers Grove Mix A Six)-40į in snifter-Pours a murky red with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, sweetness, caramel, and toffee. Taste of hops, malt, caramel, and alcohol. This medium bodied brew is not bad but a bit hot.

Looks like a brown ale. Full bodied. Hop overload in both aroma and flavour. I really donít see the point in doing an Imperial Red. However with that said it does taste good. Right at the end there is a slight chocolate finish. Not too bitter. No real unique notes.

Ibrew2or3 (7565) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2013
12oz bottle pours with a clear ruby red amber sort of colored body that supports a tan head of foam. The modest aroma has some roasted malts, malt sweetness, some vague hops and sweet dark fruity esters. The taste delivers roasted malts, malt sweetness, some pine hops, grassy resiny hops and a lime like citrus bitter hoppiness. Behind those notes murmurs sweet cherry to prune dark fruity esters. Not bad.
