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 at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Norra Vallgatan
Cloudy dark amber color with small head. Aroma of caramel and some fruits, nutty. Bold, caramelly, moderately sweet, with very strong bitterness, plenty of hop resins and some bitter orange.
I prefer leaner beers, but this one too is very good.

A scent of wild berries is the first thing that strikes me. The flavor is strong and has easy fruity with some caramel. Aftertaste is greatly bitter with a long finish that lies down the sides of the mouth. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

@Stordirren: mustig doft av malt, humle och vitpeppar. Smaken är besk men fyllig och inte alls så tokig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Bulk_Carrier (2575) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a dark red colored body with a two finger white foamy head that dies within a minute, clingy lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell had a big caramel maltiness up front like an American Red Ale, but some persistent piney hops try to strike in on the nose, a slight biscuity element evades into the aroma as well. The taste was mainly sweet with the piney hops try to add a bitter element that stays subdued for the most part, caramel aftertaste, sticky finish. On the palate, she sat at medium, somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is pretty smooth but doesn’t necessarily have the sharp bitter assault I sometimes expect from some of Sierra Nevada’s brews. I still like this beer for the most part. Overall, I would say this is a good beer that I would have this again.

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