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 can’t suppress the assertive, citrusy hop finale.

Dark amber red with a nice tan head. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is so/so...sweet carmel malts and red candy sugar. Taste is mostly malt sweet, with some bittering hops left on the palate. Overall, not too bad.

Pours bright mahogany into a Sam glass. Off-white head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Hot caramel and resin aromas. Sweet caramel and toffee upfront turning slightly hot in the lasting tropical fruit and resin finish.

Terminus (3595) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle-12 pk beer camp purchased at Total Wine in Springfield, VA August 2013 Pours deep copper hue with a lovely soapy lite kacki head. Nose is very resionous, pine, grapefruit, caramel, toasted grains, Smells awesome! Perfect marriage of hops and malts. Flavors are very resinous hops, nice sweet toasted malts, caramel, lots of resin. Lots of piney resinous bitterness here. Body is full, lush and somewhat over carbonated however, that aids to this beer actually. Its like Bigfoot in some ways, just not quite as big and./or malty. fantastic brew!

Thisis12ptfont (1114) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Aroma of strong hops. Deep crimson brown appearance with nice lacing. Strong flavor of hops upfront with a secondary wave of maple, brown sugar, cinnamon and oak. Alcohol is under the radar on this one. Overall, tastes like a standard american strong ale. Not bad at all yet, nothing really special or outstanding about this one.

bhensonb (14165) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours dark ruddy copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is malty with a touch of citrus. Med body. Flavor is malty with a heavy dose of citrus/resin hop. Maybe even something earthy in here. It’s tending towards a dry finish, but the malt is strong. Drinks very nicely.
