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 can’t suppress the assertive, citrusy hop finale.

Bottle. Really excellent beer. Lovely hop aroma, which follows through in the taste, but with real body and depth. Excellent.

VictorStr (1310) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2014
Tyckte verkligen denna var kalas. Del sötma i aromen. Bra blandning mellan sötma och beskan i smaken. Beskan sitter kvar ett tag. Döljer akolholen på ett behagligt sätt. Lagom kolsyrad.

Vignale (2068) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2014
Flaska från SB. En ölstil (IRA) jag brukar ha ganska svårt för. Men jag tycker den här är välbalanserad där humle och maltsötma, båda rejält uppskruvade matchar varandra väl. Fin djup doft där karamell, honung, smörkolakok ligger före humlekicken av grape och tallskott. I smaken står de bra tillsammans medan eftersmaken är torrare och beskare och domineras av humlen. Jag uppskattar främst de stora och relativt komplexa nyanserna i maltsmakerna, men gillar även helheten. Funkade riktigt bra till gulasch.

stefannilssons (1464) - SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014
Det här var både kraftigt och smakfullt, smaken bar toner av grapefrukt, trä ananas och något odefinierbart underbart fruktigt. Kroppen var stabil med en rejäl beska dock var balansen inte något som man hade hängt i julgranen.

Dazz3 (1552) - Hällefors, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014
Bottled. Pours amber with a huge light brown head. Smells grassy hoppy, bread malty, a bit sweet. Tastes grassy hoppy, a bit sweet and funky, roasted malt, a bit sweet with a similar finish.
