Pour is a red-ish with a small white head. Aroms has a definate hop presence with some heavy sweet malt. Flavor is a soild hop but also a oily malt that turns out to be not as sweet as I thought it would be. Finish is a decent malt and hop combo without one overpowering the other too much. Solid hoppy amber.

It poured a dark copper color with a tan head. The aroma was very hoppy with some toast and malt. The flavor was of toast, malt and with again, much hoppiness. A very good American Strong Ale.

alexanderj (3486) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle; poured an amber-auburn color with a khaki head. Aroma of alcohol, fruit, caramel, and some earth; a lot of fruit. Hoppy flavor for the style; earthy and fruity. Not much sweetness. Solid beer.

Terminus (3482) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle pours deep amber hue with a small soapy eggshell head with sparse lacing. Nose is earthy minerals I guess are hops. Smells good actually but not as hop forward as I would like. Big earthy bitterness here lots of toasted malt. Like this but seems like a clone beer from the Rogue Hoppy Amber they usedto make. Lots of woody hops earthy and slightly metallic finish. All in all a solid brew for the style.

csaso (1958) - Missouri, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Tap - good size thick head, medium amber color, dry citrus hop aroma and flavor, mild grapefuiit flavor, fair malt balance - seems like more of an IPA than and Am Strong Ale

topherh (1919) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Draft at the brewery. Seems it is a variation of the Hop Monster they brewed last year, but the recipe is varied. Not sure where the lobster came in. Pour was a copper color with a white head that wouldn’t go away. Aroma was nice and hoppy. Flavor was of hops with a nice balance of malt and a nice medium mouthfeel.

diabel (1674) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2008
Bottle at the Laid Back Brussels Tasting (Feb 9, 2008)
Clear, amber body with an off-white head. Nice lace. Aroma of hops, malts (caramel), mint ... great aroma! Heavily bitter, lightly sweet flaovur. Well balanced, smooth flavour. Ok complexity. Not too hoppy, but nice balance (in the same way as De Ranke Père Noël combines caramel and hops).

Finhead (1528) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Clear, deep amber pour with an off-white head. The aroma is mildly spicy with floral hops and some malty bread. It has a medium body with somewhat sticky texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a dry finish.

JoeinDahlem (1437) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2007
A freshly bitter and bright ale that sticks out in the right places. Bottle from the brewpub pours a bright orange-amber. Nose has plenty of citrussy and floral hops, really nice. Tastes quite bitter but fresh and balanced with a lightly sweet center. This brewery’s seasonals and experiments are impressing me more every year. Happy to have this as my rating #400...

kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Sampled at Joplin Macadoodles Springfield Brewery tasting event, 1/9. Nicely balanced, hoppy red. Dryness brings out the hops nicely. Packs some flavor without being too heavy. Not quite a wower, but pretty well done.
