COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA is a no frills, bold 9.5% ABV India Pale Ale. It pours a pleasing burnt amber with some sweetness due to the Caramalt and roasted barley used in the malt bill. But hops are the true headliner in this elaborate sensory experience. The spicy, piney, tropical complexities of Chinook, Mosaic and Simcoe hops hit you right away with their dank aroma—and they stick around. Take a sip to have your palate simultaneously walloped and caressed in all the right places. Combined, the hops take the beer to 90 IBUs. It’s not just ridiculous. It’s reDANKulous.

    A bold amber colored beer with a big sudsy textured, beige-light tan colored head rising above. Excellent hang time on that head, eventually leaving a thick film aside the glass. Bold grapefruit hoppiness in the nose and in the tasting. A nice clean, crisp finish

    Pours clear, appetizing chestnut with a thick, frothy and persistent buff head. Aroma starts with woody hops and adds toasted malt, resin, cloves, fruit, and even a bit of cloves. Flavor boldly rushes woody hops, evergreen, cloves, toasty malt and citrus tones across the palate like a tasty stampede. Mouthfeel presents firm body and fizz to spare. Nothing redankulous about it!

    12 oz bottle, bottled on 6/6/16. Pours deep ruby amber with a huge bubbly creamy off white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

    The aroma is resiny piney spicy hops with some bready rye malt. It's a little subdued.

    The flavor is sweet nutty caramel malts with a big piney resiny dank hop finish with a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, a very nice imperial red.

    ThANKs to my neighbor for this reDANKulous beer. Straight 8's. It's big and resiny - clings to the glass like glue. Sticky but not sweet, a hop bomb. More skewed towards the pine in my opinion - some citrus. Light syrup in color. Very nice.
