3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Dark orangish amber in color, pours smooth with a nice white, slight cream head. Nice lacing, sticks to the glass. A lot of hop to the aroma, caramel, maybe even a sliver of pine and grapefruit hints. Malt character, some citrus notes to the palate, maybe a hint of grassiness, smooth and a bit of a bitter end. This is a beautiful red, I like it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of pine hop, tomato juice, and resin. Pours hazy deep red with a giant sticky head. Taste is big and bitter but not pleasant. Bitter pine, slight old grapefruit, and a big autumn leave taste. Good beer but not the most enjoyable.

Can. Deep Amber. Nice nose of caramel and pine and citrus hops. Full bodied and flavor follows nose with sweet then bitter clean finish. Solid...a notch below G’night though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can. Pours ruby amber with a medium pillowy off-white head that retains well and laces the glass some.
The aroma is a little subdued - sweet malts, piney resiny hops and some alcohol.
The flavor is sweet caramel and toffee malts and some fruit with a big grassy resiny (almost tarry) bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a decent imperial red. I like G’Knight and some of Lagunitas’ offerings better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can - amber ale? - why isn’t this listed as an american strong ale? - anyway, pours a moderately hazy dark red - frothy, well-sustained head - nose is mostly a potent mix of hops - resinous, citric, piney, fruity, peppery - some sticky malt sweetness underneath - more pleasant than I am making it sound - soft carbonation, full body - simple flavor - mostly just sticky caramel maltiness, followed by potent peppery and woody hops with a light bit of alcohol in the finish - it does what it sets out to do, I guess - okay.
