tapthis (263) - Baytown, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2015
it has a strong citrus and hop flavor, which is one of the main reasons I didnt rate this beer hire. It has a strong floral and fruity smell. It poors a dark reddish/brown color

Great beer with an amazing aroma that I detect strong fruity smell, floral, stone fruit. When you take a sip you immediately get the resin, citrus, grapefruit. Very nice beer.

ismith87 (71) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2014
Ap - 4 - This is a reddish brown clear beer that has an off white head that leave nice lacing. Ar - 8 - Nice caramel malts balanced by piney, citrusy hops. Very sweet smelling. Great Imperial Red aroma. Reminds me of GKnight. T - 9 - Oh man, this one is good. The citrusy, orange zest, grapefruit hops start, with nice sweet caramel malt in the middle and piney, citrusy, bitter grapefruit on the back of the tongue at the finish. M - 4 - Medium-heavy, full bodied. Alc covered well. Aftertaste is bitter grapefruit and sweet malt. O - 17/20 - What can I say, this is a great beer. Its about the same price/oz as OB Gknight, and honestly, Id have to have them side by side to figure out the subtle differences between the two. Great imperial red. Im glad I had it.
