All About Imperial Red Ale

Imperial red ale, also known as American strong ale, is a beer style that originated in the United States. It's characterized by a deep red color, a strong malt backbone, and a high alcohol content, typically ranging from 7% to 10% ABV or higher.

The malt bill for an imperial red ale is typically complex, featuring a variety of caramel and roasted malts that give the beer its signature red color and provide flavors of toffee, caramel, and bread crust. The hop profile is also prominent, with American hop varieties like Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook being commonly used. This results in a beer that's both malty and hoppy, with a good balance between sweetness and bitterness.

Imperial red ale is a bold and flavorful beer that's best enjoyed in moderation, meaning you're not going to be chugging a six-pack after cutting the grass. Its high alcohol content and rich flavors make it a great choice for sipping on a cool evening or pairing with hearty dishes like steak or barbecue. For beer lovers who seek hoppy beers with a strong malt backbone, then an imperial red ale is a sure winner.
