Pours a transparent copper ruby with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of dry toasty caramel earthy maltiness and some mild grapefruity hops. Starts with a fairly full earthy sweetness and crisp resiny bittering hops. A decent double red, but could use a little more assertive crisp hop character.

Pours a beautiful red/copper color with a below average head, average lacing and average carbonation. The dominate smell is heavy citrusy floral hops and mild malts. First taste is light, sweet, and a mild crisp hoppy note. Light in body and taste. Not bad - not remarkable either

Bomber from Liquid Solutions. Deep malty aroma with hints of hop. Dark, really garnet color with a frothy beige head. Medium body with mild, creamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted malt (typical red) and pine and grapefruit. Light stone fruit esters parade around the middle, and the finish is well balanced. Very tasty.

Pours a deep amber/brown, forming a medium foamy head. Aroma of hoppy malts, a bit of candied fruits, matalic plums. Flavour is of spicy grapefruits, hops, soft pine resin with a full caramel malt character. Somewhat dry in the end, but overall tastey. Wish I could try on tap.

22 oz. bottle, from Liquid Solutions. Pours a deep mahogany red color, somewhat hazy with a small to middlin’ whitish head that leaves spots of lace. Rich aroma of burnt caramel, overripe summer fruits, citrus, evergreen and light spice. Flavor features brash and crisp hoppiness, balanced by roasty, fruity, caramelly malts, spicy grapefruit, hints of pine and white pepper. Medium to full body and subtly agressive carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Red in color and quite bitter. Loads of citrus hops with grapefruit. A little sweet malt, and more hops in the flavor. I like this.
