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.

So, this is a malty IPA? Really hoppy Barleywine? Seems something like that. Lots of sweet, caramel malts and a big woodsy hop finish. Pretty good, if not really ground breaking.
