Bottle at home. Gift from Rich. Aroma is piney and caramel. Full bodied. Piney, bitter hops. Decent balance. Pretty straightforward flavor profile. Not much complexity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber. Piney amber malt aroma. Doughy, bright body. Specialty malts all the way, but they work. Cherry malt tones. Pretty solid for the style.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2015 Sampled at a beer event. Too much caramel, not fully attenuated, unbalanced. Uninspired. And If you’re drunk/retarded, I mean it’s fucking lame. Just another glorified home brew from the most overrated brewer in Windy City Distro’s wank-assed portfolio. It’s like they’re pussy-whipped on these guys. Seriously. Shit is fucking weak.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into my favorite rhinelander beer shaker. Pours a dark, hazy red with a half finger of khaki head. Aroma of caramel with citrus and slightly herbal hops. Taste is heavily bitter. Follows aroma with an emphasis on the hops. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a super long, resinous finish. Very good. I would love to explore more from these guys.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
It was highly carbed beer. Had a nice ruby hue to it. The aroma is lacking. Very malt forward with a light citrus resinous smell. The taste is malty with a faint bit of citrus. It finished with a burnt toast, alloy like taste. Displeasing mouthfeel,drying parched fell. Almost like having cotton mouth.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Deep amber pour with a huge khaki head and great retention. Smells a lot like caramel and lemon peel. Some flowers and pine, I guess. Very perfumey. A lot of toffee as well. Flavor has a heavy dose of sweet, sugary malts. Big time toffee, butterscotch, and caramel. Some green apple, perfume, flowers, and lemon peel. A bit of lemon, orange, and grass. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Binny’s in Buffalo Grove, cellared for 2 months. Pours a reddish amber with an off-orange head. Some streaks of lace. Aroma has sweet caramelly malts and pine and citrus, with some toasty-ness. Taste is of sweet fruits, pine, light caramel, some biscuity malt and toasty bready yeast. Medium to full bodied and a touch grainy. Finishes sweetly fruity with piney/grainy length. This has all the components of an American Strong (strongly fruity hoppy with non-sweet malts), although - unfortunately - is not of great quality. 13.8

Bottle shared by beerpig317. Mildly hazy red color. Thin off-white head. Nice citrusy tropical fruity hop aroma. Light caramel / crystal malt. Bigger bitter taste, little sweet. More dry finish. Solid red IPA!
