Prepare to walk the plank to an Ale of overwhelming proportions. More hops & more malts than any land lubber can handle. After this experience...your tongue will be buckled. The I.B.U.’s (International Bitterness Units) are off the scale on this ale. Be forewarned, those with a timid palate, this is not a wee beer! Handcrafted in small batches for those sailing the seas in search of great ales.

Very balanced for 10% and 100 IBUs. Can defiantly taste the caramel malt backbone. Aroma is very hoppy and alcohol oriented. Overall a solid Imperial Red. Would love to try this on tap seeing as the bitterness increase might enhance the flavor and aroma.

bhensonb (12960) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 30, 2012
Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours lightly red with a creamy yellow-beige head. Very roasty malt and hoppy aromas. Med + body. Flavor is heavy floral and citrus hop over a strong light roast malt backbone. Not harsh, but very intense. Excellent.

marcus (8001) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle from City Beer. Pours reddish amber with a sourish smoked malt aroma and a decent beige head. There is a delicious red malt flavor that is raspy, yet smooth with lots of hop bitterness. Easier to drink than I expected.

ChiefBeer12 (81) - Irvine, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle. Aroma of malt, hops, and slightly vegetal. Pours dark red brown with a creamy head. Taste is phenomenal. Hope, hops, more hops and a great malty backbone to back it up. Finish lingers forever. Awesome beer.

22 oz bottle. This beer is great. Pours red, big head and ton-o-lacing. Big sweet caramel, yet hoppy aroma. Flavor is sweet, but not over done, very balanced. Excellent bitter bite and somewhat oily on the palate. Most imperial red ales are not that good, but this one is outstanding!

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - APR 24, 2012
pours a very dark red. With about one finger of head that dissipated. Malt and hop aroma. An aptly named beer. All hops up front with a great dark malty finish, which is surprising. Only a slight hint of alcohol on the aftertaste.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Nice aroma of floral hops and caramel. Solid brew.

Marheb (3534) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2012
À la pompe au Decicco: Extrêmement floral avec des courants sapinés, terreux, terriblement résineux. En bouche, c’est une attaque autant des malts que des houblons, créant une viscosité incomparable. Un vrai délice qui me fait penser à la Mad man de Hart n’ thistle en terme de corps et d’explosion des saveurs.

Bomber from the Best Damn Beer Store. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet caramel and light fruity hops. Nice rich flavor is toast, caramel, bitter hops, light fruit, lingering caramel and bitterness. Pretty mellow despite 10 percent.
