kyzr (1458) - Montana, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Muddy red brown pour with off-white decent sized head. Bigger than expected hoppy nose of citrus. Flavor has a nice punch of hops with good solid malt jab to back it up. Good amount of warmth from the alcohol. Nice hoppy finish.

Darkmagus82 (2302) - - NOV 24, 2014
Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance The beer pours a slightly hazed brick red color with a one finger head of off white foam sitting atop the brew. As the head slowly fades over time it leaves a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma of the beer is very bready with lots of caramel sweetness as well. Tons of pine aromas mixed with a lighter grapefruit hop create a very pleasing hop base to the smell. There are hints of a roastedness and a moderate showing of a grassy and herbal hop as well, creating a very inviting and pleasant smell overall. Taste The taste begins a bit drier then I would have anticipated, but not too dry. There is a lighter caramel sweetness mixed with a decently doughy and lightly toasted bread taste upfront. Along with the more malty tastes are some decent hop flavors of a pine and grapefruit hop. The grapefruit remains relatively constant, but the pine grows stronger and stronger as the taste moves on. All the while the caramel flavors fade a bit and create a drier flavor. With a little bit of a grassy hop joining the more bitter and resinous pine, a slightly dry hopped flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the thicker side in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is average. The thicker body was fantastic for the drier red flavors of the brew with the carbonation being a nice balance between easy drinking but still supporting of flavor. Well done overall. Overall A drier and rather tasty hopped red overall. A great one to try if you get a chance.

Bottle. Waited a long time to find this, finally came across a lone bottle in the Bozeman Co-Op on my move back to Boise. Sort of muddy, reddish-brown in color and topped with a creamy beige head. Thick lacing. The nose is muted in floral hops, lightly bready. More earthy and floral in the taste, but a heavy bready malt presence. No real spice, but hints of earthy bits and dandelion. The hops a there, but somewhat subdued. No idea how old the bottle is, but it reminds me of an aged Double Bastard (if it were toned down a couple notches). Drinks well.

Very delicious imperial red from bitterroot brewing. I am not a fan of all their beers, but this is great! Well done!

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Orange-red pour with an off-white head. The aroma has some dirt, toffee and red malt. The flavor is more of the same with a lot of red malt, grass, dirt and low to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Deep hazy amber orange with a thick creamy off-white head. Sweet caramel malt in chewy proportions with a fruity intense hop profile (Simcoe?), saved from being too sweet by a nice toastiness. Imperial reds can be too cloying for me sometimes, but this one was excellent.
