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.

Draft @ Ginger Man in Greenwich, CT. This is a silky, but powerful red ale. Faint cherry notes blended nicely with the citrus notes of the hops. Good one and done beer, wouldn’t want two of these in one night, hooray moderation.

12oz into a stemmed belgian. Head is heafty and full with marshmellow likeness. Aroma is sweet plums, rasin, blackberries, and soil. Taste is malty up front, the amber offering bring forth a smooth ride down the pallate, but forthcoming hop bombs ring in a diffrent tune and spice this one up some. Its a full frontal blast of amber excellence in the long run. Caramel malt tranfusions usher in a resounding balance of continuation, as does the yeast balance and the full bodied brew. The abv centers along the line of resounding but does not seem too out of line. This brew hols steady along the line and is my second favorite tihs year. I really like how the hops sneak right in and shower one with the bitterness and juicky flow of an ipa, then the malts overturn such action and befuddle the course, bring this version an imperial status. Nice brew.

Poured into snifter from Camp Box bottle. It's a sexy ginger with curves. I'm enjoying the hell out of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fattybladdy (613) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle to pint. Deep ruby color. Aroma of sweet malt and dark fruit. Taste is big on pine and strong malt, also red fruit and a bit boozy. Heavy beer. Bitter finish.

Brenhophead (594) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2013
12fl oz Bottle. Pours deep mahogany red with a small off white head. A light caramel/toffee aroma with a sweet passion fruit ting. Massive flavour hint as the beer rolls across the tongue. Straight up is the deep toffee/treacle and an assertive dry bitterness followed by a sweet tropical fruit. Wow almost as good as 8 Wired’s Tall Poppy.

Reddish brown with small tan head. Aroma piney hops and malt. Medium-full body. Not much alcohol. Grapefruit and citrus hops, bit of brown sugary malt in the background. Bitter hops overwhelms a hint of sweetness. Flavor is quite hoppy and pretty much tastes like a DIPA without much red ale character. Nonetheless is good.

thechandler (577) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Pours a dark, ruby amber with a thick foamy head. Aroma is slightly spicy with a round citrusy nose. Flavor is very well balanced. Good solid hop favors - spicy and herbal with sweet malt and tobacoo finish. Very good.

mkgrenwel (573) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 12, 2013
The pour is more of a mahogany brown than red. I suspect I’m in for a crystal malt bomb. Poured with a nice white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a touch of cherries. Flavor is very strong cherry and cocoa notes with a citrus finish. Orange and bitter grapefruit rind dominate the finish. Pretty much exactly as advertised. Sweet candy malt meets west coast hops. Enjoyable and drinkable. Perfect beer for a fall night.

Bottle. Cherry wood color with a creamy head. Lemony hops, grass, grapefruit, and alcohol. Has a light sweetness that carries through, and the typical sierra nevada hoppy bitterness. This was my favorite from the 2013 beer camp sampler.
