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.

beerfest5 (1136) - Dublin, 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.

Suttree (5041) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 28, 2013
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.

Why they made an imply red 2 tears running is beyond me, anyway.....pours a nice ruby red with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of sweet caramel, toffee, light nutty notes, and some one dimensional citrus bitterness. Taste is sweet caramel, some toffee, light grainy notes, citrus bitterness, light alcohol.
