A full-bodied deep mahogany ale with ruby red highlights. Citrus notes of chamomile, grapefruit and Meyer lemon brighten the aroma. A zesty array of hop flavors from mango and bitter orange to green mint and hibiscus meld with the nutty, roasted caramel and subtle dried fruit flavors of the complex malt profile to create a surprisingly fresh, yet warming example of the style.

thedm (6100) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent red brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a malty aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of Irish red malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

kathouse (1858) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Deep red in color. I think the hibiscus comment is the most appropriate for the aroma on this beer. Very floral with only hints at caramel or other malts. Body is medium/thin and the finish lacks depth.

A good beer. Nice and strong. I sampled it against two others, a Brown, and an IPA. I went with the IPA for the growler.

runaway (84) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2015
12 oz bomber pours a reddish orange amber color with a dense caramel-cream colored head. Aroma is of pine, grass, caramel toffee. Taste is floral caramel with a piney juniper undertone and a long spicy finish. The alcohol is well balanced and the beer is not too dry or astringent in the finish.

Pours dark amber, almost porter dark, with solid head. Had on tap at the source in Junea on a brewery tour. Starts light and builds on finish which I like. Slightly boozy but wears it well. A good solid amber especially for an imperial which are tricky.
