A very hoppy red ale. Malty and bitter finish. Had a bottle at home. Reddish brown in color looks like cola. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark red-orange, spare head. Slightly sweet and hoppy, hint of licorice, candy apple. Sticky-sweet apple and pineapple, some citrus, tangy, cider. Pretty interesting; a little too sweet for me.

Revolution Brew Pub, Chicago, draft. Honey aroma with a apple cider, malty taste. Reddish nutty brown color. A little alcohol-tasting, but not overly. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber, via Archer Liquors , Chicago...pours a reddish brandy color with virtually no head. Nose is sweet, toffee mixed with caramel. Taste is sweet, with caramel sugary malty taste. Finish is sweet as well, slightly bitter with a moderate lingering. Solid ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

zgaier (1391) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2014
Pours a red brown with a tan head and sweet aroma of fruits, hops, and malt. Taste is sweet, hops and fruits up front with sweet malty, caramel notes leading to a bitter, fruity finish. Nice brew, very drinkable

Marheb (2047) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2014
Échantillonné du Extreme beer fest 2014: Des malts grillés, crystallisés, caramélisés et collants avec des houblons agrumeux résineux. Exactement ce que je m’attends d’une red ale américaine, pas la plus complexe mais efficace.

dinkle50 (972) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Deep red pour with a thin head. Lacing is present. Big time hop aroma. Lots of citrus. Full mouth. Lots of sweetness with a hint of farmhouse funk. Finishes west with earthy notes and some fruit rind. Very easy to cruise through at 8.3%.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Sampled during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. A pretty basic strong amber, this. Dried caramel, piney hops, lightly toasted bread. Medium bodied, fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with plenty of bready malts and ripening citrus fruits. OK.

Daytonbeer (644) - Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Pours amber with light beige head and some lacing. Aroma of caramel malts, pine and spicy hops. Taste is the same and ends with a spicy cough syrup aftertaste. Very good.
