COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Released shortly before Valentine’s Day, My Bloody Valentine is the red-blooded cousin of our Halloween specialty ale, Evil Dead Red. Caramel-sweet malt is delicately balanced with floral American hop varieties for a truly unique drinking sensation. A deep mahogany red color and a big, aromatic hop profile are the signatures of this seasonal ale.

Very tasty red ale. Toasty caramel malts have a knife fight with a bold floral hop presence. Rich, red liquid leaves a light lacing on the pint. One of rare favorite reds.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2014 Bottle shared by Eugene at Chuck’s. Old school amber / red. Lots of caramel malt, plenty of c-hops. Not exciting, but very well crafted with a bigger flavor than it ought to be able to manage at <7%. Enjoyable to drink.

Very hoppy aroma, piney and resinous. Pours clear red with a white head. I’m not normally a fan of amber ales, this one is hoppy and bitter, more like a pale ale but that’s what I like!

Bomber from ojai beverage, ojai CA. Bottled dec 12,2013, fresh! Very nice full-bodied amber - lots of bready flavor with hops piled on top. A bit heavy but very drinkable, with a pleasing flavor as it warms. Recommended

douglas88 (5556) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bomber from Beermongers. Pours a dark red color with a large beige head. A sweet nose of caramel, toffee and fruity hops. The flavor is crisp fruity malts, oranges, some sandalwood, caramel, burnt toffee, a bit of perfume. Pretty darn nice. Flavorful. A bit earthy.

BoostIPA (1103) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bomber. Pours an amber color (obviously) with a just off white head. Aromas of caramel, pine sap and citrus. Taste is moderately bitter with some bright citrus notes shining through. Finishes semi sweet with some bitterness. Not bad, not great. Meh. Wouldn’t buy again.

RedSox2004 (1139) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Mahogany red with a two-finger off-white head and very nice lace. Mild bready malt aromas with floral and pine hops, toffee and darker fruits. Malt forward flavor, biscuits, darkfruit and gentle piney hops. Medium body, nice carbonation, oily mouthfeel and a slightly overdone sweetness in the finish.
