Very smooth, easy drinking beer for its strength and bitterness. Actually it seems quite well balanced.

Kevin (2194) - Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Hazed murky brown lacing grey head. Smells of prunes and booze and brown sugar. Bitter little fucker. Raisin, booze, cinnamon, and grapefruit. Not what I expected from an impy red. Wonder if I got the barley wine?

bnokk (502) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2015
APPEARANCE - beautiful dark amber color - totally comes through as a red. Head runs for the hills, but the lacing has real persistence. NOSE - west coast hops dominate the nose of this beauty. FLAVOR - thick resin notes stay on my tongue long after the sip. Exceptionally flavorful. NOTES - as expected, ballast point delivers.

Taste of pineapple, resin, sweet orange, grapefruit, mango and sweet bready malt. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. Sweet, bitter and delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zymurgeist2 (2011) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 19, 2015
From bomber to tulip glass. Perfume and pine forest dominate, and the dankness shows more as it warmed. Clear amber, with a slight brown hue, and a head the is off-white or very light beige. Taste is pine - like eating a handful of evergreen tips. Moderate high bitterness - but not massively so as advertised. Moderate low chewy biscuit from both the bittering and malt support. Finishes moderately dry for all of the alcohol. Alcohol really starts to show on the aroma as it warmed.

Iphonephan (6554) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2015
From a 22 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper with a thick off white head. Nutty nose. Flavors of citrus and pine. Bitter finish. Tasty.
