Recently Red Dragon Skateboarding (Red Dragon Apparel) out of Vancouver teamed up with Dead Frog Brewery in Aldergrove to create a new and exciting beer called the “Red Dragon Imperial Red Ale”.  The beer pours a cloudy brown colour with a tan head.  The aroma consists of passion fruit and an overall tropical fruit tone that overpowers everything else.  The flavour is of Passion Fruit and an overall tropical fruit hit with citrus, pine, hops bitterness and a sweet finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 8% with an IBU of 50.  Not only is the Label really cool (And will also be available on RDS t-shirts soon from my understanding) but the beer is also very tasty!  Its a big beer that holds up to a big skateboarding brand like RDS in BC.

Commercial Description:  This is a monstrous dark red ale with massive helpings of hops and malts.  A robust & rich malt base is perfectly balanced with a tropical citrus flavour & aroma provided by hearty helpings of citra dry hopping.

Ingredients: 
Water, malted barley, hops, yeast
Malts: Pale Ale, Cara Amber, Munich, Cara 20, Special B
Hops: Citra

Recommended glass as per brewery:  Hollowed out skull of your enemies.  For this beer I stuck a pint glass though.

    Picked one up the other day and it was rather tasty. Served it at the proper temperature for once and that helped immensely!
