Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 15, 2017

As I stare at this beer, I wonder the easiest and most painless way to drink it.  Today I’ve drawn the Double Dragon Imperial Red Ale.


Just as expected when I saw the 8.2% on the label, this beer is strong and boozy.  I’m officially going on 4 days in a row of beers that I’m not enjoying.  This is a true struggle. At least it has a cool name.


Imperial red ales are credited to being created by Californian brewers.  IRAs tend to have intense hop aromas and flavors with medium to high caramel malts.  A beer gets it’s imperial name referring to the brew style of doubling the hops and malts creating a higher alcohol content ranging from 8-12%.

Hopefully tomorrow’s beer gets better because this week has been a struggle.  Even Marvin feels my pain.  Well not really, he’s just excited to have pictures taken of him.
