The Story:

Sure to delight your Senseis, Double Dragon Imperial Red Ale is here to high-kick it up a notch… For a real hop heavyweight, this 8.2% red ale remains bright on the palate striking quickly with roundhouse hop kicks and finishing dry. Ultimately this majestic beer, brewed deep copper red, is big enough to slay even the strongest thirst. Originally released in 2008, this delicious Imperial Red Ale has stealthily reappeared throughout the years as a seasonal release but hasn’t left the Dojo since 2015.

Tasting Notes:

Pours a dark copper red/brown with a finger of foamy off-white head.  Aromas of woodsy pine with a slight hint of citrus.  A robust sweet taste complimented with a generous pine and pleasant bitterness.  Finishes dry.

Availability:

This beer is currently only available in this year’s Snowcase.

  1. “Double Dragon” – continuing on with the parade of strong ales, I was prepared to be wary of this imperial red ale, but was pleasantly surprised by finding it to be quite tasty, not excessively hopped to my taste, and easy on the palate. I would be happy to have it again though not excessively chilled at 4 degrees Celsius as if it were a lager.

  2. Surprisingly hoppy, imo. Not a problem. Finishes strong and has plenty of flavour. Enjoyed it, though had my doubts with it at 8.2%.

  3. Nice tasting beer. Color was pleasant and the hops was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. It’s not something I would buy in a case, but rather on tap at a bar. The art on the label was fantastic as well.

  4. I really liked this one. A lot going on. Good flavour with a pleasant, mildly bitter aftertaste. Definitely something I could have a 4-pack of as it seemed dangerously sessionable.
