strattonspeaks (113) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Dark, rich copper pour with vanishing small off-white head. Faint caramel malt nose with subtle citrus hints. Not getting the big bitter hop flavor I anticipated....dominated by sweet malt notes with mild bitter undertones. Smooth. Medium bodied. Fair brew.

Terminus (3371) - 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.

Finhead (1375) - 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.

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.

alexanderj (3423) - 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.

jgentgesdo (682) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours clear amber with a thin off white head with good legs. Nose is intense floral and grapefruit hops. There are pine hops notes, cream, a little charcoal. Quite bitter with a malt backbone. Reminds me of very good homebrew. Seems dry hopped.

csaso (1736) - 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

jandd1983 (3207) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2012
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.

BenRod (48) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - FEB 4, 2012
This beer has huge hop aroma. This hop monster is bitter to the point of astringency, but it is at least paired with a strong malt flavor. It is not balanced at all, but I believe that’s the point.

diabel (1630) - 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).
