COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA is a no frills, bold 9.5% ABV India Pale Ale. It pours a pleasing burnt amber with some sweetness due to the Caramalt and roasted barley used in the malt bill. But hops are the true headliner in this elaborate sensory experience. The spicy, piney, tropical complexities of Chinook, Mosaic and Simcoe hops hit you right away with their dank aroma—and they stick around. Take a sip to have your palate simultaneously walloped and caressed in all the right places. Combined, the hops take the beer to 90 IBUs. It’s not just ridiculous. It’s reDANKulous.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2018 Great imperial red ipa with lots of flavours. Nice barley maltiness, caramel, sweet and sour fruityness and dry bitterness. Excellent combination.

maekchu (4098) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 2, 2018
Bottle from Sugaya. Nose of pine and caramel, fairly dank (yes), with spice. Hazy medium brown with reddish highlights. Flavors of caramel, dried fruit, berries, resin, with a bitter and fairly dry finish. Medium-heavy body, with clear alcohol warmth. Sweet, juicy, and bitter -- all at once. Very good.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy red with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, caramel malt and tropical fruit. Body is full and tangy. Herbal hops dominate the palate with caramel malt and tropical fruit provide support. Finish is long and almost dry. Great brew.

3.9
venom666 (1129) - Elche, Alicante, SPAIN - DEC 16, 2017
Pours a clean amber color with medium white head. Aroma is intense, quite dank, specially from the Simcoe hops, fresh grassiness, citrus, pine and caramel. Taste follows the nose, dank, sticky, grassy, herbal and citrusy, with a strong caramel/toffee background and a fairly bitter aftertaste.

4.1
vinivini (3146) - Gomel, BELARUS - DEC 8, 2017
Bottle. Pours misty deep amber to bronze colour. Dense and long-living off-white head. Aroma: a blend of solid caramel & toast malts, honey, bright hops revealing dankness, resin & tropical fruit. Medium to full body. Powerful palate. Perfectly balanced malt & hop. Caeamel, toast, fruit, grapefruit, resin. Vinous. Medium bitter. Tasty. Very tasty.
