The Red Hot Mama from Yakima was one bad *itch, running through farmers like they were her personal toys. She especially had her way with our old buddy Vinny from Van Horn Farms and left him drained in the fields as she hitched her way out of town with a dress full of fresh hops. This Red Hot Mama was not one to mess with. She hooked up with a Harley gang, and made her way down to Atlanta looking for a soul to steal. She met her match with El Danko, and the two of them got nasty in the brewhouse together; clothes and hops were flying all over the place. The load of fresh Centennial hops were dropped, and head brewer Nick Nock scrambled to use ’em as they smelled extra dank! After hosing of, El Danko showed her the door. He knew he didn’t have enough left in him for another round. Right on, Red Hot Mama. Girl, you sure look good to me!

I’m always excited to get my hands on the latest installment of Sweet Water’s Dank Tank series. I’ve landed some pretty awesome brews from it in the past. Here is goes. Pours a deep reddish brown with a thin frothy white head. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is slightly bitter, citrus rind, floral notes, brown sugar, and a hint of alcohol. Taste feels a little empty on the front then a wave of citrus, hops, and spices hits you, before fading away in a faint malty sweetness. Finish is rather clean, and the mouthfeel is smooth if not a bit on the thin side. Overall this is a decent beer, and the progression of flavor you get from it is unique. Unfortunately I feel like it’s a bit on the forgettable side, as it really lacks any sort of "wow" factor.

"Darkish brick red color. Hop heavy, but with plenty of malt to back it up. Earthy. lightly floral and piney, caramel and a hint of sweetness and roast to offset the bitter. Pretty nice, and easy at 8+%."

Bottle. Pours crystal clear ruby red, medium creamy tan head that dissipates slowly leaving nice lacing. Aroma is caramel and pine. Flavor is medium sweet, medium bitter, caramel and pine. Not bad, but past its prime.

22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel and toffee malt, grapefruit citrus, earthy hops with a mild spicy character. Not the biggest imperial amber going.

Rated on notes from a tasting on 26 Dec 2013 -- Had on tap back home, Fort Walton Bch, FL. A nice red, nothing remarkable. Well, maybe the way you could drink several without realizing the potency.

22 oz bottle for 9 bucks. Pours a very dark reddish copper color with a huge light tan head. Aroma is huge caramel malt with slight pine hops and a little doughy as well. Taste is not very big on the malt flavors though. This one is mostly a piney/floral hop, a little sweet on the back end with a smooth bitterness. Body is medium, creamy and slightly slick. This is another fine addition to the Dank Tank series.
