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.

SpringsLicker (3156) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Cloudy dark amber body with a tall, long lasting, off-white head. Sweet cotton candy molasses aroma. Lots of sweetness and bitterness in the flavor. Reminds me of Arrogant Bastard. Heavy, sweet and coarse bitterness. OK if you like this style.

Sampled at Julio’s Spring Beer Fest. Poured a hazy reddish amber with a 1/4" beige head. Sweet caramel malt aroma, backed by pine resin. Flavor is that nice balance of hoppy bitterness and malt sweetness. Full bodied with a resinous coating on the tongue.

Draft at Plan B in Glastonbury, CT. Pour is a filtered deep amber with an off white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, honey, pine and citrus. Taste is malty but equally hoppy. Lots of caramel and bitter hops with some sharp aromatic hops as well. Pretty good.

Nice change of pace. A little malty and hoppy, but it is refreshing and not very bitter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ben4321 (4026) - 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 (2413) - 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.
