Malty, citrusy and quite hoppy imperial red ale with some sweet pine and resinous notes. Pretty good.
On tap at ABV taproom. Awesome beer. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big fruity caramel nose. The flavor is toasted malts, oranges, super sweet malts, fresh fruity hops, some robust bitterness. Pine lingering with some resin. Big and lovely. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - MAR 11, 2014
From bottle. Deep copper and amber in color, bubbly with a quarter-inch layer of thick head. Aroma is tropical citrus, pine resin, and caramel malt. Taste is an explosion of citrus (both tart grapefruit and sweet orange), passionfruit, pine, and a pronounced malted sweetness. A hop bomb that stays well-balanced with the malting. Citrus flavors linger long after, and hides the alcohol content well. pdx76 (651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle - pours dark copper with thick foamy head. Nose of hop and pine. Oily mouthfeel. Initial intense taste of hop followed by sweet syrupy malt. Ends bitter with lingering hoppy finish.

Pours copper with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows floral and piny hops along with resinous notes. Some sweet clean malt underneath.
Minty, spicy, herbal and resinous hops as flavours. Also booze and sweet bready malt followed by an aggressive bitterness that doesn’t quite match the malt.
Syrupy body. Could be a little lighter perhaps.

Caramel and toasted tones are inviting, but I find the aroma overall a bit off putting, perhaps an earthiness not quite right. Color is gorgeous, the palate average, and overall a bit lacking. Want to love this beer, especially with the packaging, appearance, and alcohol content. DoublEE (782) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2013
It tastes of pine like and citrusy malts. There is a nice roasted and dry malt flavor to the beer. I like this Imperial red a lot because the malts they use are mostly dry not sweet though there is a mild toffee flavor as well. The beer ends with a nice bitterness to it. Overall a great hoppy imperial red ale that has a nice malt flavor and a nice hoppy flavor. I really enjoy this beer. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of pine, grass and dirt. The flavor is similar with a lot of red malt, grass, toffee and pine. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. SpringsLicker (3660) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Murky dark amber body with a generous off-white head.
Aroma of sweet malt with a touch of hops.
The flavor is bitter, a bit coarse;reminiscent of Arrogant Bastard.
Not my kind of beer.
