Elevation Downpour Imperial Red Ale (2012)

Brewer: Elevation Beer Company
Style: American Strong Ale
Alcohol Content: 7.5%
Seasonal: Autumn

Downpour balances on the boarder between malt and huge hop flavors, much like the balance between warm summer days and the bitter cold thunderstorms we get here in the high country of Colorado. The beer pours a hazy redwood red with a white fluffy head. Hops dominate the nose with pine, earth, and grapefruit balanced slightly by caramel malt flavors and hints of our fruity London Ale yeast. The beer hits the palate with bitter hop notes of pine and is balanced by bready malt. A beer for the hop freaks among us. Not quite a Imperial IPA but no other categories exist on RateBeer to fit this beer style.
