COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate caramel, fruit, sweet citrus, light grapefruit, and dusty yeast notes. It pours a transparent dark oranish-brown with a two finger beige head that leaves behind a good amount of sticky webbing. The flavor starts with fruit, caramel, and a touch of cola. The finish has light-moderate citrus and grapefruit. Itís medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, Itís comes across like a fruity American Barley Wine.

Pours a dark amber with red highlights. The aroma is sweet with caramel and bread. The flavor has the sweetness up front but quickly gives way to the citrus and peppery hops. Quite dry with a very nice after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dagimp (698) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2013
From a 12 oz purchased at The Greeks into a pint glass of some sort. Pours a crimson red. Three or so inches of head and some sticky lacing. Very nice piney aroma with some lighter fruit mixed in. Mouthfeel is sticky with a solid amount of carbonation. Taste is first off a scotch ale but then the hops kick in. After which its bitter and piney. Some skunk, veggies and pineapple. Glad to have tried it and I could see myself drinking it when I feel like a big ass red IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very hearty caramel body with strong notes of molasses. Some rich toffee sweetness and a bit of chocolate. Big fruit sweetness. Pine and grass with a big citrus rind component. Strong and somewhat boozy.

12oz bottle from the Beer Camp box, pours a really dark red almost brown with an off white head, aroma is a mixture of sweet malt and caramel with a good amount of citrus and hops mixed in as well, the flavor has a nice hoppy front end with a smooth sweet finish, not over the top bitter and hoppy and not too malty, a really nice mixture of the two, really nice stuff.

Very dark amber brew with small quickly fading head. Aroma was like dewberries or blackberries with a small copper metalic hint. Taste was a more hops than expected but still pretty good. Other than the hops there was hits of the malts and a thick mouth feel that made this one really good. Hope the store has more of this Beer Camp sampler left cause looks like Iíll be buying them out.
