On draft at Tap 25. It pours a dark rusty color with an orange head. The aroma is toffee and multigrain bread. A bit of syrup and plum. The flavor is more hop focused with pine and more plum fruit. Strong maltiness without being too sweet. Good balance.

Bomber from TJ's. Aroma and flavor were muted when cold. Best served around 60 degrees... Citrus and pine meld seamlessly with nutty, caramel malt, making it hard to actually distinguish the two apart. Very balanced. Nice, citrus bitterness on finish, balanced with mild, nutty, roasty, caramel nuances. Nice fall weather transition. Solid beer.. Just be sure to let it warm a bit out of fridge. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy amber with a medium beige / tan head. Extremely aromatic, with truckloads of resinous, citrusy hops, and a big fat caramel malt at least as prominent - there are some tropical fruit notes further back as well. Flavour is super pungent, with a big whopping caramel malt backing, supporting the truckload of resinous hops on top. Again, there’s a hint of tropical fruit content, but not prominent. So insanely well-balanced, while still be extreme in its flavour profile. Finishes with a harsh but pleasant astringency. One of the best imperial reds I’ve had.

Got this one in a trade thanks to Bytemesis. Pours amber with a small off white head. Smells strongly of pine and caramel. Taste is is sweet up front with a nice bitter backbone. It has average carbonation and a medium body. Pretty much exactly what I would expect from this style, good example of a west coast strong ale.

Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very dark red with a cream off-white head that laced quite a bit. Aroma seems quite pine. Med + body. flavor is very pine over a fairly dark roast malt. Finishes malty, but more bitter and hoppy.

Bottle - thanks MikeB! Pours clear reddish amber with a large tan head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is beautiful grapefruit, caramel, a bit of pine. Flavor is much the same, very nice, very balanced. Lightly sweet and medium bitter growing into the lightly warming finish.

On tap at Drakes poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, orange zest, pink grapefruit, pine and tropical fruit. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, pink grapefruit, tangerine, light tropical fruit and light pine with a crisp dry bitter lingering grapefruit finish.

On tap at Pi Bar. Amber pour with a creamy off white head Big dry hoppy nose. Toasted malts and resiny hops. and a nice clean bitter finish. Labeled as a double amber for some reason but quite nicely hopped and drinkable

Bottle. Deep red-brown color, clear, with a beige head and very good lacing. Flowery, pine aroma. Taste is bitter throughout, piney, with peaks of caramel malt poking through. A bit of alcohol burn in the finish.
