A nice imperial red overall. Pour a nice red with a white head. Smells of strawberry, oats and a hoppiness. Taste is piney and creamy, with lots of strawberry. Had on tap at the brewery. ryanhunter_4 (330) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
650 ml bottle poured at home. Pours a cloudy brownish color, like iced tea. Smells like citrus hops. Taste is bitter throughout. Not what I expect of a red ale but drinkable. More like an ipa. DuffMan (10612) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2015

Rich dark amber pour with a foamy head. Gorgeous lacing. Has a nice range of flavours from pine, grassiness, wheat, straw, floral hops, and a nice hop bitterness. Big malt flavours and a big abv back this up nicely. lightbias (453) - USA - JUL 28, 2014
A tangy and a grassy aroma accompanies this burnt sienna liquid, cutting through the thick, soft, off-white head.
There is a touch of citrus, but not as much as I have noticed in other comments. The grassy, earthiness in the aroma slices through the hops and a toasty biscuit flavor surrounds my tongue with such a balance! I love this Imperial Red. A medium, creamy body glazes my mouth and coats it with a mildly malty bitterness that’s sure to impress. Enjoying this and will be happy to give it a thumbs-up! bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2014
(22oz bottle) Pours a clear orange body with a medium cream head. Aroma of caramel, bread, cherry, raisins, toffee, and honey. Flavor of caramel, toffee, grass, pine, and citrus with a dry, bitter finish. vyvvy (6639) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at the brewpub - Pours copper with a beige head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit, tropical fruits and solid toasted malt backbone (it’s really heavy on the pineapple aroma). It has a full body that is still a touch crisp and has soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with sweet caramel malt, pineapple, mango and passion fruit. The finish is big on hops and even bigger on the malt. This comes across as a big beer and delivers well. Lizardking3 (192) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Love the bottle, very cool. This one pours beatifully. Great smell, goes down super smooth with a great after taste.
