Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Bomber pours deep copper with a bit of haze and off white head. The aroma has decent strength with citrus, near grassy hops mixed with stale wet cardboard maltiness, cherries and faint caramel. The taste is much the same starting with a pulse of hops and cherry cough syrup and mild stale maltiness. By midway the hops grow to become pine and grapefruit as a modest roasted malt note is noticed. It ends stale, mildly hoppy and with the hops lingering into the after taste.

Guinness4Duff (515) - Tallahassee (and Poconos, PA), Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Bottle. Very cloudy amber pour with a big off white head. Strong hop aroma and taste overpowers (in a nice way) the subtle caramel. Pretty Good.

junon (420) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Beautiful milky red amber. Nice lasting creamy head thats more typical in a stout. Coats the mouth rather nicely more so than I remember from similar beers. Very nice through and through. At 6% I think it masks it extremely well.

Bottle pours a reddish amber color with a medium white head. Sweet aroma that includes malt and caramel. Flavor is sweet but hoppy.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 20, 2008
From a bomber, pours medium amber with a good off-white head, good amount of lacing. Sweet red beer with nice amount of bitter, piney hops. Well balanced. Nice dry finish. Well recommended.
