22oz bottle purchased in Jacksonville FL. Amber pour with an aroma of caramel malt and oats. Hops and alcohol flavor. Tasty but a little rough. Maybe the recipe needs some polishing. I have had a few amber oat beers and I enjoy the concept. I particularly enjoy Three Heads Loopy, which is half of this creation.

What an awesome Impy Amber! Pours a gorgeous amber into the glass, with a light eggshell head that leaves soapy lacing. The nose is of caramel and strawberry candies... yummy! Flavors are lovely, of sweet caramel and toffee, light biscuit flour and toast, pine resin, and finishing with a peppering toffee bitter, showing just a hint of alcohol. The round body and oily mouthfeel is tempered wonderfully in the balance of malt sweetness, alcohol heat and peppered bitters. Superb Impy Amber Red here! Tasty, complex and substantive, sweet and comforting, this provides a nice quaff to be enjoyed over and over again.

Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy amber with a medium, frothy and bubbly off-white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is brown sugar, cookie, caramel, and toast malt with pear and apple esters with pine, resin, and citrus hops. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, medium fruity esters, spicy and peppery alcohol with sweet malt and a dry finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Location:22 oz bottle from Central Market, 6/24/13

Aroma: The aroma is sweet malts, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, and mild hops
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish color with a medium beige head and some sticky lace
Flavor: The taste is medium-plus sweet, with some moderate bitterness coming later on
Palate: The body is medium-full, it has a sticky finish, some heat, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: Ironically, I havent seen this one around NYC (that I can recall at least), but I did stumble across it in Texas and figure Id give it a shot. This is a pretty solid beer, it leans malty, especially in the nose, but some hops do come through later on. It wasnt a favorite for me, but its solid.

Bomber. Big rich beer. Hazy rusty color, no head. Full body, malty but not sweet -- good balance with the hops. A good strong full beer.
