It's time for a new edition of canned Wynkoop Brewing liquid art: We're now releasing Colorojo Imperial Red in hand-labeled 12-oz cans. Our second installment in our Even Smaller Batch series, Colorojo is a luscious extra-strength amber ale made with hefty amounts of malts and specialty grains, and a unique blend of four American hops. These hops are used in six different hop additions during the brewing process, including a massive dose of post-boil hops (in our legendary Hopinator) and a jumbo dose of dry hops. A tea-colored beer with a dense latte-like head, Colorojo has a boozy nose of pine, orange marmalade and turbinado sugar. These aromas arrive atop flavors of caramel, alcohol, a note of chocolate, and more resin and citrus flavors. A slow-fading hop bite in the beer's finale balances Colorojo's residual sugars and velour mouthfeel. Colorojo is 8.2% ABV and has 65 IBUs.ID: 53964 Last updated 9 years ago Added to database 9 years ago

12 oz can. Pours ruby amber with a medium pillowy off-white head that retains well and laces the glass some.
The aroma is a little subdued - sweet malts, piney resiny hops and some alcohol.
The flavor is sweet caramel and toffee malts and some fruit with a big grassy resiny (almost tarry) bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a decent imperial red. I like G'Knight and some of Lagunitas' offerings better.
