4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber via StefanJ! Arrrgh Matey! Immediate surrounding presence of hops as soon as cap is off. Pours a deep translucent amber with just enough light to see the steady carbonation. Head is adequate but still onthe smaller side for my liking. Malt balance to offset the sizable hop intensity is spot on for this strong beer. Ten percent does not show thru. A singular tone of wavy hops about malts from start to finish. A big brew to have before dinner at the steakhouse.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color- murky, ruddy brown. Head- lacing, tacky, slightly creamy. Smells like a barely wine or strong ale and the taste is along the same lines. ABV is evident. The hops a big in this, but more on the spice notes than on anything citrusy (unfortunately).

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep reddish brown/mahogany with a two-finger thick tan head that dissipated to a solid film and left great lacing. Pine hops were the strongest aroma with big roasted malts clearly present. A delicious beer, strong resinous hoppy flavor balanced with strong maltiness that lingered in the background. Medium body with light carbonation that left a real good mouth feel. A big, big awe-inspiring beer

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Pours red amber with a big creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet caramel malt blended with green resiny hops.
The flavor is some sweet nutty caramel malts and lots of fruit with tons of piney resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, a nice big hoppy red. The alcohol is well hidden.
