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.

J_man (790) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Burnt wood notes in the aroma along with earthy notes. Clear copper/amber color with a light tan head. Scorched sugar and molasses sweetness followed by a creamy vanilla flavor. The alcohol becomes very evident at this point along with a good bitter earth/forest hop presence. A bit of butterscotch in the back along with more charred wood notes. Finishes dry and sweet with a lasting bitterness.

3fourths (8603) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle. Dark red amber body, clear with short tan head. Fruitcake, maraschino cherry-almond bread, pine, juicy ripe oranges, pressure-treated lumber and brown malts. Pumpernickel bread shows up in the finish. Brutal bitterness, medium-high sweetness, somewhat savory, decent malt firmness. It’s seemingly dry even though I can tell on the approach that it’s sweet. Sweet but not too sweet, and the hop acids cut the sugar well. With the silty / minerally Sierra Nevada yeast and strong pine resin character it seems like a different iteration of Celebration, which was one of the original American Red IPAs. So it’s got that going for it.

beerfest5 (1206) - 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. Don’t 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.
