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.

Aroma is pine, green onions/celery and spices. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, a good hint of green onions/celery that fades into being more mild heat, malts and a dry and bitter finish. Could have done without the green onion/celery flavor, otherwise it was decent.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle. Deep garnet pour, one-finger beige head. Nose is resiny, with notes of dark berries, candied citrus, caramel, and bark. Sweet and hoppily bitter. Sticky but dry palate. I donít generally dig this kind of beer, but this one sort of hit the spot.

Emeister84 (985) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Aromas of nutty, caramelized malts, and citrusy hops, with some booze. Clear ruby-bronze with a mostly fading, off-white head. Dry, somewhat fruity, and very balanced. Medium bodied, strong, and with a very clean finish, especially considering the high ABV.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Bottle says itís Beer Camp #95. Looks good; a hazy dark amber with light beige lacing. Smells of big caramel malt with a fairly bitter hop profile and a bit of soapiness, but not unpleasantly so. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

demitriustown (1067) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2013
12 oz bottle: Aroma is big on hops and lightly fruity. Appearance is a clear amber/red with a thick off white head that lingers. Taste has hops a little bit of malts, light coffee notes, and grapefruit. Palate is medium to high carbonation with an aftertaste of pungent hops. Overall, I liked this one. Cheers!

Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 28, 2013
So, this is a malty IPA? Really hoppy Barleywine? Seems something like that. Lots of sweet, caramel malts and a big woodsy hop finish. Pretty good, if not really ground breaking.

12 oz. Clear, deep copper-red with a lasting film of cream. Nose of molasses, evergreen resin, light orange and chocolate. Tastes of orange toffee, evergreen resin, woody pith, prune, and hints of cocoa and sweet soy sauce. Big minty finish. Medium body has average carbonation and finishes very dry.
