3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Deep red, decent head.
Smell: Not a lot in the nose.
Taste: Sweet and malty. Some toffee. Much more intense flavor than I would have guessed from the aroma. Fairly boozy.
Mouthfeel: Medium-ish body.
Drinkability: Solid. A bit heavy handed on the maltiness. Not a favorite.
Bottle. Holy crap, this is a BIG beer from all angles. Thick and ruddy with a sturdy head. The aroma is downright scary, rife with some woodsy hops and malt.
The beer drinks like chewing on bark and hops. I already had a lot of hair on my chest ... I think there’s more. (#6671, 6/23/2017) willisread (3308) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Draft at Mellow. Pours a clear amber with a finger of foam that lingers. Very light nose, bit of pine, orange. Smooth and well balanced. More orange popsiclevas it warms. Bitter, piney and nice. Well done. bdleedahl (435) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 28, 2017
A very hoppy imperial red. Medium body. Not their best beer, but good overall, not for the style. Ballst pt sd

Poured from a bomber bottled on the 270th day of 2016, so just about 5 months old. Reddish amber with a good sized off white head. Sweet caramel nose, taste was bitter sweet. Medium bodied with a strong bitter finish. Very nice Imperial Red.

bottle. very nice imperial red ipa. enjoyed with 2 others - very good beer. thedm (6148) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 10, 2016
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated golden red brown colored body and a very good lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of Irish red malt caramel and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.
