This imperial red pours a dark reddish amber color with a creamy tan head with little to no retention. The aroma has a nice sweet malt character with some grapefruit and a real nice sweetness. The flavor is much like the aroma upfront with light bitterness and roasted malt middle that is balanced by the piney resin finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and high in carbonation. Overall, this one is a great representation of the style and one I definitely would recommend.
