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.

Dark brown/red appearance w/ decent head. Legendary aroma.. at first I got splendid hops, but then I got caramel malt. Awesome. Taste is excellent.. hops, malt, caramel. Palate is very balanced.. some carbonation, some thickness.. some bitter. An all-time great for me.

luttonm (7213) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2018
Bottle in Seattle. Thick lacing offwhite head, dark copper brown, light cloudiness. Rich, balanced resin on nose with sticky toffee malt lining. Fantastic sip of rich resin overtones with a bite of brown sugar flavors, and sweetness. Pine resin bitterness snaps everything together. Dangerously drinkable for weight. Delicious.

Very intense and dense IIPA with beautiful aroma, almost can smell it through the closed bottle! Complex but balanced taste bouquet with caramel notes and straw, hay.

Très belle robe rouge ambrée, un peu trouble. Très bonne tenue de mousse. Arômes agrumes, fruits confits, fruits secs, résineux, épices, un peu vineux. Goût résineux, agrumes, épices, biscuit. Très longue en bouche avec une amertume soutenue. Sensation huileuse, chaude, enveloppante. Carbonatation fine, plutôt peu abondante. Très bonne.

guzgorog (1022) - FRANCE - MAR 6, 2018
Robe ambrée/rousse/brune, mousse beige crémeuse, qui ne tient pas trop. Nez houblonné, résineux, léger caramel. Bouche amère, bel équilibre entre la base malté, biscuit, caramel, et le houblonnage généreux avec des saveurs résineuses dominantes, le tout relevé par un alcool bien présent. Corps dense, liquoreux, longueur moyenne mais maertume persistente, carbo moyenne. IIPA brutale et assez bien faite, mais manque un je ne sais quoi qui la rendrai vraiment interessante !
