Bottle from burgy, thanks!! Pour a deep amber, red hues and nice and fluffy 2 finger head, leaves a nice cap. Aromas of stinky hops, resin, pine, some citrus and and equally as sweet captain crunch cereal notes! Taste is very sweet with a pretty full mouthfeel. The hops come in waves though. Oranges, lemon peel, spruce, sap...they all make for a nice balance to the hearty cereal malts. Really enjoyed this one!

BoostIPA (1100) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Bomber courtesy of Atom. thanks! Pours a deep red color with a small off white head that fade to a ring. Very piney and resinous in the nose. Taste is initially very malt forward with moderate sweetness followed by a lasting piney bitterness. Pretty heave (read:sweet) malty base they have here which is balanced by copious amounts of piney hops. Not next level beats, but pretty solid nonetheless. Sweet and bitter.

22 ounce bottle. Pours dark red with a decent off-white head. Big aroma of pine, citrus, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, pine, malt, and some caramel. Bitter finish. Not your typical Amber Ale.

A nice sweetness to this. Better than the typical British style amber. On tap at Steel Toe Minneapolis.

On tap at steel toe. Aromas are some hop and caramel malt. Great hoppy flavors with some nice malt to even it out.

vikingguy (761) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Amber color with small foamy head. Fruity hop aroma. Caramel malt with ample but not overpowering grassy-citrus hops. Also notes of molasses, rye and even a touch of nuttiness. Good balance between malt and hops. Solid red ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nuffield (3637) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2013
What is a double red ale anyway? Why doesn’t this just become another style, like an American Strong Ale? At any rate, this was reasonable, with a pronounced hop front and plausible balance of hops and malts. (on tap at Republic, Minneapolis)

ChrisSc (184) - Lille, FRANCE - DEC 6, 2013
En pression at brewery. Pint glass. Appearance: amber In color. Transparent. White frothy head with good retention. Aroma: hops, some spiciness. Taste: slightly sweet with a bitter hoppy finish. Palate: thin body with a frothy texture. Overall: well made. Hoppier than I normally prefer, but very enjoyable to drink. Good palate and flavor.
