"An imperial amber in a bomber. fuller (but not really better) feel from the jacked up abv. bitter citric hops and sweet malt seem a bit confused and muddled. Not sure where this brewer is going. When they were new, the beers were too slick. Now they seem unfocused, muddled, directionless. Eh. Not worth a bomber."

2011 backlog. 12oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with a one finger beige head. The nose is caramel and fruity citrus. The taste is toffee, molasses, overripe citrus and some faint resin in the finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good Red. 3.4

hotstuff (4142) - Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2014
Rated on 6-07-2011 (Bottle) This beer has a small fizzy ivory head with a short retention, transparent amber body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus, pine hops, and apples. The taste is semi-crisp, lightly bitter, citrus, pine hops, and a hint of apples. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. I did not get any "big hoppy flavor" as the description says. It is somewhat crisp and refreshing on a hot summer day.

Bärnstensfärgad med litet ljust skum. Doftar både humle och malt och i smaken finns det humle och lite karamell malt! Ok öl!

fattybladdy (582) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2014
12oz bottle, pours a robust amber with tall head. Sweet malt in the aroma. Caramel malt, bread, citrus hops, fairly sweet all around. Kind of a unique taste for a red.

Stuedmaster (226) - Vista, California, USA - MAR 6, 2014
22 oz. bomber from a local liquor store. Aroma is very unique, like persimmon pudding with caramel and oak. Nice light amber/ orange/red pour with a creamy white head, leaves lacing. Taste is sweet and complex, with the right amount of bitterness. Has some dough and fruit character. Medium body, thick texture, average carbonation, long sweet finish. A good example of the style with an added level of complexity. The 7.2% alcohol is well hidden.

@ Party Town / Florence KY Cloudy dark amber, no head, no lace. Taste is malt and dark fruit with slight bitterness that moves through the palate and finish without change. Inoffensive, static, I can drink it, but why?
