4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clearish dark amber with a generously foamy off-beige head. The nose is exactly all that I am looking for in a double red: loads of caramel, loads of floral hops, resin, and grapefruit zest juiciness. The flavor is nice and malty with a strong malt-booze backbone. There’s a rush of caramel and grapefruit rind & zest right off the bat, which blends into a floral and piney resin tone, with a semi-sweet citrus sweetness that’s also a touch peachy and bready. Very big bodied, with a lot of stickiness in both hop and malt tones. It’s very well done, but it’s basically the same as Oskar Blues G’knight, so I’m giving it the exact same scoring. And G’knight is cheaper and in 12oz cans...

Really good with a strong thick aroma and taste. Aroma is nice and malty with a certain thickness to it...there is some good hop character as well. The taste is malty, caramel, sweet and rich with some faint hop character. It finishes similar to a thicker brew: rich, smooth, creamy, slight bitterness. It’s quite enjoyable...Let’s get that game face on...this is what we play for!

Bomber - I don’t normally jump on buying an american strong, but I tend to like Marble beers, plus their regular red is quite good - hazy light red - soapy lace - light caramel maltiness in the nose, but the aroma is mostly resinous hops, citrus, lemon, pine - medium body, slightly oily texture, moderate carbonation - flavor is more like an imperial ipa - the malt base provides a decent structure for the hops that dominate the flavor - hop flavors of earth, pine, citrus - bitterness is zesty, peppery, but a tad abrasive in the finish - some alcohol heat at the end as well - simple, but enjoyable enough - I prefer the regular red, though.

Pours red/amber. Nice thick head. A bit sticky on the tongue, but very full flavored. Tons of malt, bread and some caramel. Lots of citrus hops, resin and bitter but not over the top. There are more notes than I can pick out at this time, would like to try this again sometime.

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.
