Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ruben for this bottle! Hazy dark reddish amber. Great hoppy aroma, bursting with tropical fruits (lots of melon). Slightly sweetish flavor with chewy malt, a bit of caramel and a very bitter and hoppy finish with a bit of fruitiness and nice piney notes. Medium-bodied. Very nice.

Sampled @ AZ Strong Beer Fest. Vibrant almost glowing crimson with tangerine at its edges and a frothy white head. Bright hops that show grapefruit pith, lemongrass, orange peel and peppery spice accompanied by caramel, toffee and honey. Nice beer!

Usually the idea of an "Imperial Red" has me scrollin’ past pretty hard, thankfully for me though Mr. Ketchepillar brought me this diamond in the rough.
The aroma is very hoppy and appealing, mainly it’s focused around hops including lots of grapefruit and a good bit of pine. Not really sweet or terribly malty smelling, but pungent and inviting.
The flavor is pretty high on bitterness with a nice touch of toasty malt. The beer is not overly sweet and is light on the caramel/toffee notes that usually ruin a beer like this. The alcohol is mild but noticeable, and the hops are really the feature here. Primarily, like in the aroma the feature is the big grapefruit-y hop character with some lighter piney notes.
This totally works better as a Double IPA than many that claim to be of the Double IPA style. A very enjoyable beer.

Bomber picked up recently, think it was $5.49. looks identical to the regular Marble Red, red, good head and lacing. Aroma is a tinge of hops, a wallop of alcohol, and malts giving chase. Flavor was fruity, boozy, and not as full as the regular red. I do suspect that this is the base for the Marble Reserve Ale though I could be wrong. Decent value but not sure I’d buy another.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, ivory head, with some lacing, over a clear, reddish amber (SRM 16) body.....nose is light pine, grapefruit peel, toffee/caramel.....taste is pine, grapefruit, strong toffee/caramel, finishing with a moderate bitterness.....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, alcohol warmth present. This falls well within the very broad style of "American Strong Ale". The malt and hop backbones are reminiscent of a D/IIPA, although the hop bitterness is more subdued. This combination of aromas and flavors, although spread over several styles, is becoming a bit trite and overdone by the craft industry. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7
