Nice rich amber color with a rocky beige head. Aroma of hops, citrus juice, sweet caramel malt. Red ales really aren’t my favorite but this one is pretty good.

Bottle. Murky amber pour with a soapy rocky head. Hop forward - earthy, some pine. A bit dank. Amazing amber.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On the side of the bottle reads "042815."
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a two finger white foamy rocky head that dissipated in about a minute and a half. Light stringy lacing sticks in a semi-thick sort of fashion.
The smell starts off with a citrus zest with the citrus rind running over top of a light caramel presence. Its there for the style but doesn’t show a whole lot of depth.
The taste is mainly bitter through the citrus zest and rind. Sweet is only there to balance in the caramel, but even that isn’t exactly balanced once again. Bitter citrus aftertaste that leads into a sliding bitter citrus finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation packs enough sharpness but still allows the bitterness to display most of the sharpness.
Overall, for an American Red/Amber ale, this one is a bit more hoppier than others. Might not necessarily be a session beer, but more likely one just to enjoy as is.

Bomber fun whole foods. Really nice looking amber red with very little carbonation but a gigantic head. Smell is hop forward, a bit different than you?d expect considering the look. It takes minutes for the head to dissipate. Aroma is pineapple and citrus. Mouthfeel is a bit off for me. It?s a bit thick. Not enough carbonation for me. The taste is ok. Some caramel at the end. I don?t love this one, but it gets the benefit of the doubt because of the brewery.

Solid red ale, has a nice malt structure and when you can get it fresh, the hops come through nicely.

I’m not a big fan of reds. This one is fairly hoppy. Moderate malt. Great color.

A very tasty red with great hop notes. Slightly bitter but good palate of honey and butterscotch. Pours a deep reddish brown.
