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.

annunz123 (945) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Aroma has pine straw, caramel, nuts, and a fair amount of alcohol. Smooth and relatively (and surprisingly) mild flavor. Some grassy hops and a LOT of alcohol in the finish. I love red beers, and this one is good (but not great).

malrubius (2320) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle from Meditrina. Deep garnet red with lasting head and lace. Strong piney hop aroma with some toasted caramel and fruit. Toasted caramel and fruity sweetness balanced with big piney woody fresh hoppy bitterness. Fairly dry finish for abv. Slight woody red wine aftertaste. Medium body light for abv. Lively carbo accentuates hops helps keep it dry. Excellent.

Deep reddish brown. Nose of toasted malt and piney citrus. Flavor is the perfect balance of sticky toasted malt and citrusy pine. Lingering sticky hops. Great beer.

glennmastrange (2529) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of roasted and caramel, moderate cooked orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, and date, brown sugar faint spice and a hint of licorice in the background. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, beige, with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark reddish brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. A potent yet smooth American Strong Ale.

CObiased (183) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bomber poured into a Sam Adams tulip style glass. Great reddish amber color with golden undertones. Mouthfeel is bold and layered. It seems more like a super hoppy red ale. Big red malts wrapped in massive bitter piney hops. Completely unbalanced but awesome.
