Sorry for the delay on this post, but better late than never as my Great Grandpa's Nephew's Son's Sister's Neighbor used to say.
A couple months ago Flop and I set out to create an Imperial Red Ale this was inspired by the recent addition to the Fluke Brew Crew, my new pup Ruby.

We researched the style and found some recipes that seemed to be similar to what we wanted in our Red Ale. Those characteristics we were looking for are: good maltiness/body, pronounced hoppiness, and a Ruby red color. From the recipes we found, we gained some good ideas that helped us develop our own recipe. The hops in this beer include: Northern Brewer (bittering), Columbus (aroma), and Amarillo Gold (dry hopped). This is sure to beer a great winter beer with enough kick to warm you up in this Minnesota winter!
