COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Red Hot Mama from Yakima was one bad *itch, running through farmers like they were her personal toys. She especially had her way with our old buddy Vinny from Van Horn Farms and left him drained in the fields as she hitched her way out of town with a dress full of fresh hops. This Red Hot Mama was not one to mess with. She hooked up with a Harley gang, and made her way down to Atlanta looking for a soul to steal. She met her match with El Danko, and the two of them got nasty in the brewhouse together; clothes and hops were flying all over the place. The load of fresh Centennial hops were dropped, and head brewer Nick Nock scrambled to use ’em as they smelled extra dank! After hosing of, El Danko showed her the door. He knew he didn’t have enough left in him for another round. Right on, Red Hot Mama. Girl, you sure look good to me!

Pours a nice clear sienna with a thick and rather persistent buff head. Malty aroma has a strong hoppy and woody overtone, more like an IPA. Flavor fills the mouth with woody hops, fresh malt, resin and earthy notes. Watch out, ol’ Red Hot Mama will sneak up on ya! Some sips have a whisper of caramel, varnish or even cloves. Texture is quite firm and somewhat fizzy. Get dank in this tank, y’all.

Special beer. One of the best styles with that signature sweetwater taste that makes all their beer good! It was hard to critic this one but only thing I wanted is an imperial type body. Other than that, it’s a red hot mama!!

22 oz bottle for 9 bucks. Pours a very dark reddish copper color with a huge light tan head. Aroma is huge caramel malt with slight pine hops and a little doughy as well. Taste is not very big on the malt flavors though. This one is mostly a piney/floral hop, a little sweet on the back end with a smooth bitterness. Body is medium, creamy and slightly slick. This is another fine addition to the Dank Tank series.

Bomber from Shenanigans Lexington. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of big grapefruit notes, toffee malts, mild earthy hop notes. The taste is strong grapefruit, tart lemon, toffee malt. Medium bodied, average carbonation, smooth, balanced. Nice beer.

Rated on notes from a tasting on 26 Dec 2013 -- Had on tap back home, Fort Walton Bch, FL. A nice red, nothing remarkable. Well, maybe the way you could drink several without realizing the potency.

Brown with a red tinge. Would have put a lot of money on this being some sort of red ale. Fruity and full of hops and really nice. One o my more favorite dank tanks I can remember. Sweet caramel malt flavors. Aroma is grassy and citrusy and getting me all excited for the sip to come. And it comes with full body and a lot of malt backbone. Lots of toffee leading into a smooth finish with a touch of bitterness citru on the back end. A big hippy beer that doesn’t scrape the enamel off your teeth. Well done. Burping some lemon citrus. Mmmm

Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber. Pours a clear deep reddish-brown with a thick one finger dark tan head. Amazing head retention and lacing that is very long lasting. The aroma has a certain chocolately character to it as well as grapefruit and pineapple. Some candy/bubblegum and caramel as well. The bubblegum/candy sweetness carries over into the taste. There is grapefruit and pineapple from the hops but is lingers below a heavy chocolate/caramel/tootsie roll malt presence. Mouthfeel is on the thick side with a good bit of stickyness. Overall, I like this beer but I feel it might lean a little too much towards the malty side and is a bit sticky. The hops are great but I wish they were a little more up front. A sipper for sure but a good beer.

PorterPounder (5552) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Albany, Ga. - Warehouse Package Store - 22 oz bomber. Pours a deep dark brown with a thick khaki colored head that leaves a thick trail of lacing. Aroma has some heavy spruce accents, a touch of brown sugar. Full-bodied flavor with some fruity cherry notes, some bittersweet citrus notes, some brown sugar sweetness and a touch of caramel. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it. Pretty solid entrant from Sweetwater.
