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.

wyzzywyz22 (2073) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle, Ship in a Bottle, West Kirby. Copper pour with a reserved tan head. Sweet malt, citrus and resin in the nose. Initially sweet taste that succumbed to a healthy dollop of citrusy hop. Satisfyingly pleasant to drink. This Beer Camp Series is very good indeed.

slowrunner77 (6569) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 5, 2014
"Nicely balances caramel and nutty aroma with blasts of fresh citrus. Flavor is tame - not an in your face hoppy red, but the hop flavor, light spice and aromatics are definitely there. Another solid addition to the beer camp line."
