Bottle - from "Beer Camp" sampler. Deep copper color. Mostly clear. Aroma is mostly malty with a bit of roast. Really good! Quite hoppy with some malt flavor. Would definitely buy a case of this if available.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I really liked this beer. It had some of the earthy qualities of an Irish red ale, but unlike that style, it was aggressively hopped. The hops mask the high alcohol content very well. Very pleasant to sip, a little overwhelming in flavor if you try to drink it too fast though. The hops have a fresh, light character, and I definitely notice citrus like the description claims, which is an interesting contrast to the earthy, caramely malt background. What I like most about this beer is that, especially if I sip it, it has a very light character, in spite of its richness, intense hoppiness, and high ABV. And it really is red--holding it up to the light was visually striking.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle pours a reddish amber color with a thick off white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of caramel, dark fruit, citrus, and pine. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is slick and oily with good carbonation and a semi dry finish. Not as good as last years version but still a pretty awesome Imperial red. A little on the hoppy end but still well balanced. This is the last beer I tried in this years pack. Can’t wait to see what next years pack holds.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bottle pour to shaker. Slightly sweet, slightly roasted malt, light citrus. . . nothing dominates the taste, everything nicely balanced. A good beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep amber with a thick foamy ivory head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrus, resin, earth. Taste is loaded with resinous and citrus hops followed by a huge caramel backbone. Nicely balanced. A bit of an alcohol warmth as it goes down. Bitter dry hop finish.
