Blessed be! Our ridiculously big, ultra-hoppy imperial red ale, RED GOD returns to the exaltations of worshippers far and near. From his celestial perch, he commands this rapturous union of malt and hops and prophesizes our inescapable bitter finish! Since its inaugural brew many years ago, both the malt and the hop content have been increased with each successive batch, yielding what today is an absurd 9.0% hop monster.
Red God features 7 different hop varieties showcasing, in particular, Chinook, Amarillo, Simcoe, and Centennial. These varieties combine for a strong herbal, spicy, citrusy character, which dominates the palate.
Hopping rate is quite aggressive at nearly five pounds per barrel with 80+ IBU, yet balance prevails! American pale and Belgian caramel malts provide a rich and malty, deep red pedestal upon which this hop fest rides until its long, lingering, hop-bittered finish.
