Imperial Red Ale
This recipe was based on the idea of an amber ale that has more hops and more malt. This complex sipper is heavily dosed with Cascade, Centennial and Columbus hops which provide a solid, yet balanced, bitterness and a sticky finish on the tongue. The crystal malt offers a crimson red color and a complex presence of mouthfeel to meld this brew together. Cheers

Hazy orange colored body, medium sized off-white head, soapy lacing. Light citrus, some florals, and mellow cracker. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, lively bitterness and a clean finish.

Farbe dunkelamber. Geruch nach C-Hopfen. Sehr viel bitterer als die Angabe vermuten lässt.

Das Hopfenaroma ist so stark, dass es fast ein bisschen an Putzmittel erinnert. Auch der Geschmack ist im Nachgang etwas seifig.

Draft at lucky lab. Pours clear copper with a small tan head. Aroma is light but has some light floral presence. Taste is bitter as can be up front and had a little malt balance in the finish. This is definitely one of the more bitter red ales out there and pretty enjoyable.

Draft at the Khyber. Poured a very dark red brown with a slim foamy beige head that left some lace. Strong hop aroma at first but, at first sip, quickly mellows to some softer malty red fruit flavors. Bitter citrus hop flavors surround lighter notes of plums and strawberries. Interesting ride as it goes from bitter in the nose, soft reds with a bitter at the top through the sip, then a sudden unexpected burst of gentle honey sweetness towards the end and finishes smooth, but then the bitterness returns to command the aftertaste.

on tap-pours copper with a tight tan head that laces. Aroma is sweet resin/some citrus, medium malt-caramel. Taste is sweet resin/citrus hops with some bite and roughness, medium malt-caramel. Drying finish.

reggiedunlop (3726) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Pours a clear caramel/ruby color with a medium tan head...great lacing and retention. Aroma is very floral and hoppy...spicy citrus notes and some earthy hoppiness. Flavor has caramely sweetness and earthy bitter hops, some tea...not as floral as expected. Mouthfeel is medium full and sticky with an earthy bitter finish...very dry. Looks and smells great...tastes ok.

On tap at Pinocchio’s. Dark amber pour with a smallish head. Caramel malt base of an amber ale with a good rough citrus hop base. Thick on the tongue. A perfectly balanced malty/hoppy beer. Not overly aggressive but well but nicely done.

Scouser (357) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Pours a beautiful copper colour with a good beige head and lacing, nice looking beer! Aroma is floral and caramel. Taste of rose up frOnt followed by a citrus bitterness. This is a good beer.
