COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our aggressive Imperial Red Ale is a massive mix of smooth malts and West Coast hops that have no patience for the lupulin leery. This crimson beer starts with caramel-like malt flavor that cant suppress the assertive, citrusy hop finale.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a dark red colored body with a two finger white foamy head that dies within a minute, clingy lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell had a big caramel maltiness up front like an American Red Ale, but some persistent piney hops try to strike in on the nose, a slight biscuity element evades into the aroma as well. The taste was mainly sweet with the piney hops try to add a bitter element that stays subdued for the most part, caramel aftertaste, sticky finish. On the palate, she sat at medium, somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is pretty smooth but doesnt necessarily have the sharp bitter assault I sometimes expect from some of Sierra Nevadas brews. I still like this beer for the most part. Overall, I would say this is a good beer that I would have this again.

Bottle. Really excellent beer. Lovely hop aroma, which follows through in the taste, but with real body and depth. Excellent.

Tyckte verkligen denna var kalas. Del stma i aromen. Bra blandning mellan stma och beskan i smaken. Beskan sitter kvar ett tag. Dljer akolholen p ett behagligt stt. Lagom kolsyrad.

Vignale (3638) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2014
Flaska frn SB. En lstil (IRA) jag brukar ha ganska svrt fr. Men jag tycker den hr r vlbalanserad dr humle och maltstma, bda rejlt uppskruvade matchar varandra vl. Fin djup doft dr karamell, honung, smrkolakok ligger fre humlekicken av grape och tallskott. I smaken str de bra tillsammans medan eftersmaken r torrare och beskare och domineras av humlen. Jag uppskattar frmst de stora och relativt komplexa nyanserna i maltsmakerna, men gillar ven helheten. Funkade riktigt bra till gulasch.

Det hr var bde kraftigt och smakfullt, smaken bar toner av grapefrukt, tr ananas och ngot odefinierbart underbart fruktigt. Kroppen var stabil med en rejl beska dock var balansen inte ngot som man hade hngt i julgranen.
