Pours a dark red with an everlasting tan head.
Smells of lots of caramel malt with some piney scent from the hops.
Taste is up front caramel what you’d expect from an amber, but also a load of piney and a bit of citrusy hops. Roasted malt notes are also detectable. Finishes extremely bitter and dry at the end of the palate.
Mouthfeel/carb are pretty spot on for the style.
I like my ambers hopped up, and this is a good beer, but I think they missed on the profile a little bit. Everything ends up being a bit too bitter when the roasted malts and piney hops are added together. Maybe a bit more lean toward a citrusy hop could have made it a tad less harsh.

hazy red-brown with a medium off-white head with long retention and good lacing. biscuit, stone fruit, toffee, mango, resin, citrus. very bitter, medium sweet. full body, oily feel, little warmth 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Amber, moderate frothy sandy head, spott lacing.   Soft pithy nose, faded pine and citrus.   Similar tongue, much more pithy that I expected to the point it seems a little astringent.   Body and mouthfeel
are moderate.   Decent malt base.   Finishes with a slightly earthy malt and pithy citrus peel.   Could use some more sweetness.

65 cl bottle @ home. Pours reddish amber with a little sediment and an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Flavour is peach, citrus, pine, and caramel – with a bitter finish. bubbleflubber (2231) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Pours a lightly hazed burnt amber into the glass, with a nice eggshell head that leaves webbed lacing. The nose is malty, of sweet caramel, with a hint of spices and fruit-candies. Flavors are burnt toffee, toast, biscuit flour, tannins, light melon and finishes of big, bold pine bitters and citric pine needles. Lingering hops for days in the mouth, coupled with an oily/resinous, yet light seltzery, active body. The dry peppering hops overbalance the malt sweetness in the finish, taking away from the "backbone"; thus, the palate is a touch more hollow than the rest of the contingencies would suggest. Either way, it’s still a tasty Impy Red. solerunner (20) - Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Very good flavored IPA from Clown Shoes. Clown Shoes never disappoints.

The Gibson, Brooklyn tap ($7): Pours red with an off-white head. Aroma is hops: some fruity, citrus, bit floral, with a nice darkish malt backbone. Taste is quite bitter and dry. Hoppiness permeates, but rests on the malts. Good combination. Good, but not all that interesting. AndyW68 (1579) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Orange brown with white head. Aroma is pine resin. Taste is pine and bitter. Very nice amber.
