Strong hop presence in this red wonder. Nose fills your head with hops followed by a sharp mix of malt and hops. Very well balanced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a reddish brown with a average white head. Aroma is a decent helping of caramel malts follow by a decent oily hop. Flavor is pretty much the same. Heavy caramel sweet malt with a decent malty backbone. Finish is a bit sweet but this is a decent beer with lots of heavy malt but it also includes a decent hop. Reminds me of some Rogue beers.

Hazy amber pour with a frothy off-white head. It has a pine and spicy hop aroma with mild caramel. The medium body has an oily texture with average carbonation. The taste begins bittersweet, then finishes bitter and dry.

Pours deep cloudy amber with low white head. Aroma of grapefruit, blood orange, citrus, pine. Taste is initial bitter, blood orange and grapefruit, and never really mellows or balances out, finish is still bitter, almost astringent. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.

I really enjoyed this beer. I thought it had a nice and hoppy body which was complimented well by a sweeter, maltier backbone. It has a kick to it and decent alcohol to match.

Draft that pours medium copper/red with eggshell. Med madly aroma with nice hop scent in there. Flavor is somewhat thin as well as the body not really all that good but drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of cascading foam tan colored bubbles that were and left behind no visible carbonation, a hazy light brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was of malts and hops. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering woody aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of rye wood brown malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy dark red/ amber with a thick khaki head that leaves some nice lace. Nose is a nice blast of resinous piney hops with some grapefruit, caramel, toasted malt, some cherry is noted, some spice. Pretty sweet, but also quite bitter. Medium toward full body, quite oily. Tasty American Strong here. Itís savory and nicely balanced, with plenty of hoppiness to make me happy.
