On tap at OHSO. Decent balance of caramely/ sweet malts & piney/ bitter hops. Pretty fresh tasting hop profile, which I enjoyed. OK overall, but a bit forgettable.
Tap. Poured clear ruby color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable beer. smith4498 (3676) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2016

Newer recipe dialled back to 8 percent. Very malty and caramely nose with a similar flavor profile. Light tropical fruit hop flavors with a noticeable but smooth bitterness. Easy drinking 8 percent beer. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 22, 2015

On tap @ The Parlor. Pours a clear red/amber with an eggshell white head. Aroma is pine, hops, roasted malt, sweet caramel and citrus juice. Taste is bitter hops, caramel, sweet malt and citrus.

On tap at the Oak Creek Brewery & Grill in Sedona. gnoff (11100) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012
Pour was reddish amber, very clear, with a remarkably durable, creamy, tan head. The head has a bit of red too. Glass is coated even 30 minutes after pouring. Simply great looking beer!
Aroma: smells like aN IPA, although a tiny bit more malty than average.
Taste follows: clearly an Imperial Red, this is strongly flavored with a huge hop component and moderate-high bitterness. Given that, good balance.
Medium-full body with a touch of higher ABV harshness. Lightly dry finish.
O: a very bold and hoppy red that is more like an IPA than an amber/red.
At GABF on Thursday October 11, 2012 Jow (4125) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Clear golden color, off-white head. Sweet, malty, hoppy scent. Butterscotch, sweet taste. Hoppy aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Had on tap at brewery while enjoying wonderful Simons hotdogs. Pours crimson with nice head. Nose of toasted malt. Tastes of more toasted malt, caramel, grapefruit, orange zest, and pine. This was my fav from oak creek this week.
