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.

Sample at Systembolaget tasting. Smell of caramel malts and hops in the background, a bit stingy smell. The hops sits in the background and the malts dominate.

Bottle from Thistle News. It pours deep red with a medium yellow-white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, pine, varnish, jammy berry and Dr Pepper. The taste is varnish, pine, caramel, red berry, jam, cherry cola, citrus peel and some alcohol. Med+ body and moderate carbonation. Decent.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JAN 22, 2014
2013 bottle. Pours a reddish brown into the nonic pint glass. Large white head that lasts for awhile, fair lacing on the glass. Aroma is resin and floral hop notes combined with caramel malts. Donít get the citrus however. Some booze in the taste upfront. Nice finish but a little off with the carbonation. Pretty good ASA but not one to remember.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Enjoyed at the Three Penny Taproom. A well balanced, but very hoppy red ale. Love the hops and it is a very beautiful ruby in color

Good strong malt flavours with some citrus to balance it out. Alcohol present in the taste. All up a solid but not great beer.
