3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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)
