DOUBLE DRAGON IMPERIAL RED ALE

Phillip’s Brewing Co. , Victoria, British Colombia

  • 8.2%ABV
  • Pours a good full head, light and frothy.
  • Brilliant ruby red colour highlights through out.
  • Smells similar to an IPA with a strong hop bitterness and sweetness without the typical citrus, pine and floral notes.
  • Very dry bitterness on the taste with the overall flavours a little flat. The only thing really coming through is a pine tree bitter note.
  • Not especially well balanced.
  • Perhaps this years batch was not as good as previous years, as I remember this as being a fantastic beer in the past.
