Darker amber with head that lasted to the bottom, nose is citrus and earth, flavour is caramel and a whole lot of earth, lots of warmth, spot-on medium bitterness, love this style and this is a great rendition of it.

Pours a hazy amberish copper with a nice off white head that dissipates into a nice hat. Aroma od spicy, floral and citrus hops with a nice sweet malt balance and a hint of vanilla. Taste is sweet rich malts, with spicy floral hops and a nice gentle bitterness throughout. Excellent easy drinking winter ale.

My favorite winter beer. When this beast hits the shelves every fall I get excited. A-Bomb is not the faint of hops. It has both citrus and floral sroma from the cascade for a winter which is uncommon but it allows the right blend of pine from the Simone. These guys from Portland are making it right!

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear reddish copper color with a nice 1-2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange rind, orange zest, pineapple, pine, caramel, floral, grass, bread, honey, and hop earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop notes; with a great hop/malt balance. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, pine, orange rind, caramel, floral, grass, honey, bread, and light earthy pine spiciness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pineapple, pine, caramel, honey, bread, floral, grass, and light earthy pine spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop flavor; with a great hop/malt balance; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice red ale. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavor with great malt balance; and dangerously easy to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

650ml bottle. Dark amber with foamy head and thick lacing. Great green hop aroma, typical three-C with prominent citrus and toffee/caramel background. Fresh, round bitterness backed by strong crystal malt character. A boozy, big mouthful of flavour from initial orange-and-piney sip through to the long, bitter-sweet and mildly dry finish.

16 oz can courtesy of bvc. 199-501 12_362 HAPPY 2013 stamped on the bottom of the can. The pour is a clear copper brown with a 1/2 inch tan head that falls pretty quick. The aroma is caramel malt, faint roast, pine and citrus peel hops and an overall herbal character. The taste picks up on the hops, bright pine resin, floral, then the grainy toffee caramel malt, there is a dry bitter off-sweet finish which also features the herbal. The palate is medium bodied, bright natural carbonation, and a mineral pine dry finish. This is a tasty beer, thanks for grabbing it for me Brandon.
