10 oz tulip on tap at Toronado. The aroma has a nice caramel and toffee sweetness present. Mostly sweet and malty. Somewhat transparent dark ruby colored body with a small to medium off white head. Starts with a caramel, sweet, chewy malt flavor. Lots of tannin notes present. Becomes a bit leathery towards the finish with some fleeting bitterness that’s a little dank. Straight forward, but good enough. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2015

Draught at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 30 Jun 2012. Poured a deep amber, with a dense off white head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops with some toasted malt. Toffee in the flavour, with berries and grassy hops. Finish was bitter resin, peal and caramel. slowrunner77 (12988) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Pretty nice imperial red ale. nice balance of crystal malt, nuttiness, citrus hops and some bitterness. not a wow beer but pretty solid across the board.

January 6th, 2012 - I’d like to think Pizza Port Carlsbad’s 547 Haight is a testament to the challenge of brewing a muscular, distinctive red brew, but amongst PP’s other offerings, it didn’t offer me much to take notes on. It’s hoppy, sure and sharp in both nose and flavor, where the caramel sweetness oozes, ribbons of caramel draped over hop cones. The rich grains and sugars are a welcome push-back against a hopper edge, with an aroma not unlike a brewery on brew day - botanical, but candied. Good stuff!

30/12/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Ambrata carica, abbastanza torbida, schiuma biancastra sporca, abbondante e molto persistente. Al naso sentori di malto e luppolo, fortemente erbaceo, con note resinose e pinose. In bocca è molto amara, con una nota di caramello a sostenere il tutto e un buon corpo, i 10 gradi non si sentono per niente! La carbonazione è molto abbondante. Non male.
