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.
American Double / Imperial IPA
By doubling down on the American IPA formula, the American brewers created new levels of hop flavor and intensity.
Generally a pale gold to a deep copper, these beers are sometimes hazy or cloudy if dry hopped or unfiltered. Like the American IPA that it's based on, the flavor profile of this beer can vary - but it is almost always fairly aggressive. Copious American hops - often citrus, piney, and floral - are balanced by a relatively large amount of alcohol and plenty of caramel malts. Hop bitterness is almost universally high, and the ABV is often 7% or above.
The term "Imperial" comes from Russian Imperial Stout, a style of strong beer originally brewed in England for the Russian Imperial Court of the late 1700s. Best served cool, 46-54 degrees, in stemmed tulip, beer snifter, or large wine glass.
