G'Night Imperial Red IPA

G'Night Imperial Red IPA comes from the Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard, North Carolina. I had a 16oz can of the stuff, which weighs in at a dastardly 8.7% alcohol. It was a clear, amber brew crowned with a solid ivory head.

There was a strong waft of hoppy, hempy aromas. This pungent brew trod the line between boozy sweetness and heavy bitterness. There was quite a bit more going on on the malt side of the spectrum than I expected. There were notes of raisin, hemp, toffee, and pine.

This full-flavoured beer packed quite a boozy wallop. It was sweeter that I'd have guessed, but definitely interesting.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
