COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously known as Winter YuleSmith.

Welcome to the holidays! Double Red IPA arrives each year as the weather turns cool and our cravings for winter warmers begin. This Imperial Red Ale has an intense hop aroma with well-balanced caramel malt sweetness. The intense American hoppiness builds on the substantial malt backbone to deliver a full-flavored beer with a ton of complexity.

Bottle (unfortunately not fresh). Pours dark amber with small white head. Aroma of caramel malts, bit of brown sugar (?) and light resiny hops. In taste lightly sweet, malty with caramel mixed with fruity hoppy notes. Medium body, dry finish. Nice, fresh would be far better for sure.

Kirkas, tumman kuparinen olut, joka vaahtoaa kohtalaisen reilusti. Ei jt juurikaan pitsi. Tuoksu jenkkimiseen tyyliin hyvin pihkaisen havuisesti humaloitu. Samoin havaittavissa makeampaa karamellisuutta. Maku alkaa karamellisen maltaisella, pehmell otteella ja jatkuu loppupuolella hyvin havuisen humalaisella ja greippisen katkeralla otteella. Ihan toimiva kokonaisuus, mutta ei ehk ihan kovan hintansa vrti.

660ml bottle served in a snifter. Pours a cloudy dark amber color forming a big, creamy and persistent tan head with lots of soapy style lacings formed and left in the glass. Nose is sweet, fruity and of course, very flowery. Strong notes of caramel and grass. Notes of nuts, raisin, pine, resin and zest. Slightly sweet upfront taste. Strong notes of caramel and grapefruit followed by a punchy piny and grassy hops bitterness. Hints of nuts, roasted malts and raisin. Very smooth texture expected from all AleSmiths Ive ever had. Great bittersweet balance. Full body. Average carbonation. Caramel, grapefruit and pine in the aftertaste. Great drinkability. Masterpiece.

Cristobal37 (909) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 29, 2016
On tap a Csakajosor. Cereal malts aroma. Sweet sugary malts with a honey boozey finish. Interesting how the bitterness creeps in, but still far from the best Alesmith. Extra point for sneaky booze at 8.6%

Flaska bishops. Rostfrgad kulr. Doft av druva och spannml. Smak av russin, sd och lite citrus. Vill minnas att frskare varianter varit betydligt blommigare. Denna knns dock ganska ok trots "lagringen".
