Beaver (1599) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2013
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 GíKnight and some of Lagunitasí offerings better.

HuskerTan (1450) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Can. A- Caramel, subtle pine, malty. A- Dark amber red color, cloudy liquid, off white head. T- Caramel, pine, herbs, malty, slightly bitter. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish. O- Iíd guess this is about as big of a beer as Iíve had from a can yet. I was pleased with the heaps of caramel I got on the nose and even in the taste. And a good caramel, not the burnt caramel kind. The pine and bitterness crept in as it warmed.

neepsntatties (1653) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2015
On tap at Wynkoop. Colour...dark, garnet-amber with a thin ecru head. Nose...fairly hoppy with some boiled sweets and field dust. Palate...frothy, very malt and quite hoppy with dark fruits and dust coated hop cones. The back palate and finish are very bitter and semi cloying. Not a wide range of flavours but a solid impy red.

DiarmaidBHK (4063) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Can from Hazelís beverage mart. Pours deep red with an inch of white foam that fades pretty quickly. It leaves behind a lot of lacing. a bit of pine on the nose. a little bit of pine on the tongue but itís faint. It hides its alcohol fairly well but itís a bit boring considering the style.

DocJitsu (1559) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Pours a dull brown-amber with a creamy, shirt eggshell colored head. Fruity and caramel nose. Thick, sticky, and astringent. Caramel and fruitiness with some citrus hops emerging midway.

agntorange (4) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2014 does not count
A- a deep reddish-amber with a thick, mouse-like light khacki head with long retention S- Deep layers of sweet caramely malt with hints of fruityness similar to raisins, dates and figs comingle with the layered earthy, spicy and citric hop notes. T- surprisingly hoppy considering the nose. Dark, fruitbread like notes. Slight caramely, malt sweetness, is balanced out by the sweet, fruity citrusy notes offered by the hops M/F- a smooth medium boddied ale that has found a way to use hops as a major player without abusiing the palate, instead offering bittsrness in the long, dry finish.

Beautiful red pour with cream white head. Aroma is hoppy though complex - fruits, toffee, etc. Taste is very hop forward with mellow aftertaste.
