COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It wasn’t always his temperament, but they were the ones ... the ones that went looking for him after all. Today is a new day. Lobstah Killah Imperial Red Ale is a special blend of Maris Otter and other malts balance a resiny mix of Columbus, Cascade and Simcoe hops. Our hoppy imperial red ale is the beer of choice for imperial decisions.

ben4321 (3564) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 2/5/14

Aroma: The nose is citrus hop, a little resin, with some caramel and toasted malts
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish color with a small beige head and average lace
Flavor: Similar to the nose, light-medium sweet and medium bitter, the hops feel a touch muted
Palate: The body is medium, its quite sticky on the mouth, with a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a decent, but not great Imperial Red. The hops aren’t quite to the level flavor-wise that you’d like them to be in this style. Decent, but not amazing.

Pours dark amber with frothy caramel colored head. The hoppy aromas are immediate, with hints of citrus. Tangy, slight sweet flavor balanced with a generous helping of hops. Bready malts and a hint of spice round it out. Nice imperial ale.

jimhilt (2377) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Pours a three-finger cream/beige head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Pine/resin nose and flavor is pine hops and caramel, light bitter aftertaste, higher ABV is hidden. $7.20 for a 220z bottle from a Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, ME.

Tejas (851) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2013
8% is hidden well so this is an easy drinker. Maybe I had an old bottle thus the hops had subsided considerably. I thought this one was way too malty for an imp red but then again 68IBU doesn’t seem like a lot for an imperial.

jkwood04 (3430) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 5, 2013
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/copper with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, plus a good amount of caramel and cereal malts. Flavor the same, with a nice belnd of these elements but pretty one dimensional. Average to smooth texture. Not bad but not great.

keanex (1289) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Bottled April 11, 2013.
Appearance: The body is murky with an ugly brown body with copper edges. The head is dense and tan with good retention.
Aroma: The aroma is bready with a sweet and pungent orange backing with a resinous presence that comes off a bit as nail polish.
Taste: The body is malty with a bready and brown sugar flavor with a prominent, but out of the way, hop presence that comes off as resinous grapefruit, pine and orange, slightly nail polish also. There’s a hint of chocolate on the finish.
Palate: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a decent beer and it would be better if I didn’t get nail polish flavors and aromas. This is worth a try though.

dmac (3754) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2013
22oz bomber from Spirits Brick. Poured a solid reddish/brown with an average sized dense foamy light beige head. Aroma of molassess and toast with some dry chocolate and dank hops that come in and out between the malty sweetness. Nice medium to slightly fuller body with strong tight bubbly carbonation and an average duration of bitterness on the aftertaste. Flavor is lots of toast, bitter citrus rind, dry molassess candy. Actually really good and if you throw a major craft label on this I bet it would fly off the shelves.

Pours deep blood orange into a Sam glass. Tan head with excellent retention recedes to skim surface. Resin and citrus aromas. Medium bodied with sweet caramel and dough upfront turning to pine resin and grapefruit in the lasting hot finish.
