3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy head. Smell is of malt, caramel, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel.
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2018 330 ml draft at Craftpital at the W Market in Bangkok. Pour is dark, but under the light, it appears a clear dark blood red in color, topped with one finger of whitish froth which recedes quickly. Aroma is hoppy upfront, an indistinct mix of fruit, followed by some caramel malt later. Taste is sweetish, fruity, caramel reminiscent of a brown or amber ale, and finally light piney bitter. Nice!

Can from Brewers Haven. Deep mahogany color, one finger fluffy beige head. Aroma us malts, dark, roasty, burnt toast. Taste us dry and dusty, leaves, tobacco, earthy. Malts at its very core. Not too strong for a strong ale, but damn tasty. explosivedog (1926) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 24, 2017
On tap at 1925 Brewing Co. Pours deep red brown. Strawberry, pepper, peach, caramel, sweet toffee finish with a nice bitter edge. Full body. Nice. R4N5H (1392) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2017 12oz can from De Bierkoning, enjoyed in a snifter on 18-Nov-2017. Reddish brown in colour with a medium sized beige coloured head. Aroma of pine, sweet malt and fruit. Medium body and carbonation. Malt forward in taste and heavily hopped - caramel, grapefruit and citrus. An awesome Red IPA. Aurelius (5682) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2017
Clear, ruddy cola pour, off white to tan head. Menacing 12oz can. Tannic, red ale aroma, with wood, cherry, incense. Chalky chocolate notes up front, cypress, fairly dry, a little astringent. I'd characterize this as an imperial red. Hops abound. Like all red ales, it's a bit of a mishmash and even in its better moments, I wish that it was something slightly different. Pretty good though. Thanks to PorterPounder for the trade.
