COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aroma explodes with citrus hops and does not stop!Hops in the beginning, middle and end. Hopped as much as a double IPA but perfectly balanced with Munich malt to give both hopheads and malt lovers the best of both worlds. Say no to the bland beer of the past and welcome the future of flavor!

Pours a translucent reddish amber into the glass, with a large eggshell head that dissipates to a medium ring that leaves chunky lacing. The nose is huge, exploding with caramel and candied citrus. Flavors, again, are very bold, with caramel, toffee, mixed citrus, light toasted breadiness, and bittered with an abundance of hops to provide a sweet, citric and peppering finish. This is full-bodied, although easy to drink, with a substantive, complex palate, medium-soft carbonation and a well-hidden ABV to boot. Bursting with flavor, Id have this Impy Red any day of the week!!! Truly gorgeous!

An aroma of caramel, citrus, pours a clear amber with an off-white head. It tastes of citrus and caramel with a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. The palate was a medium body, slightly oily feel with a bitter finish.

Braudog (6517) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2016
Draft at the brewery, served in a plastic cup. Sweeter than hoppy, but quite enjoyable. I had a pretty hard time distinguishing between the Glorious Dead ESB and Hoppacolypse ... the Dead is perhaps a shade redder than the oranger DIPA, but the flavor and characteristics are pretty subtle. Also had the Hoppacolypse with Grapefruit, which added a nice snap. (#6225/6, 7/13/2016)

Total Wine, McLean can: pours amber with an off white head. Aroma is toasted malts, citrus. Taste is much the same. Really malty with just enough bitterness to make it a little hard to drink. Not my style at all. Bitter and full.
