This Imperial Red pours dark brown amber with a thick tan head. The flavor is straightforward with sweet caramel and citrus with a bitterness floating in the back. The flavor follows up in the same way; a nice caramel malt upfront with a citrus hoppiness through the middle that ends a big bitter finish. The body is medium to heavy with a small alcohol bite and bitterness. This beer has some incredible character with the caramel sweetness and the citrus hop addition to balance, but it does have a bit too harsh of a bitter finish. This is great for those craving a bitter beer with great character!
