COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mammoth imperial red ale leads with a tantalizing hop aroma that is quickly complemented by an enormous malt backbone. Finishing with a multitude of hoppy goodness, this “Monster Beer” is truly not for the faint at heart.

Pours a dark amber copper color with a small white head. Aromas of sweet caramel malt, and floral hops. Taste is initially caramel sweet followed by a great hop bite. Mouthfeel is moderate.

Aroma- malts, caramel, floral hops, bread Appearance- dark, hazy, blood red, with some lacing and an off-white head Taste- hops, malts, caramel, more malts, slight hop finish Palate- decent body, mouthfeel is best part of the beer Overall- Two-toned beer with opposites as main parts. The dichotomy of these two characters make the beer jive too much for my liking.

Brown in color and hazy with a good sized beige head. Aroma is of caramel, nuts, bread, hops and light grass. Taste is of spicey hops and caramel. A very well balanced Imp IPA.

355 mL bottle. Pretty much a by-the-numbers American Strong Ale. Not sure why it’s called an IIPA here; way too malty. Not that malty is a bad thing. Lots of caramel (debittered black patent malt?) and lots of hops - mostly citrus. Bitter finish and good body.

Pours a dark amber color, nice carbonation, nice small foamy tan head which lasts awhile. Deep caramel malt aromas. T astes like there might be some rye in there too. The hops aren’t too big, but still have a pleasant lingering quality. A smooth beer.

kenjohn (88) - Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Reddish-brown color with a thick, light-brown head. Aroma is almost like a Sweet Tart, as it is fruity yet has a nice bitter presence to it. Nice full mouthfeel. Flavor is very malty, with a rich caramel presence and hoppy finish.

3.4
Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2012
From Beerilicious iphone app: detect a herb aroma in the hops. Red and clear in appearance with a frothy tan head. Light bitterness when it first hits your tongue only to finish very sour and bitter. Average duration. Body is medium/full with a thick and creamy texture. Containing lively carbonation and a bitter alcoholic finish.
