Beergeek23322 (2282) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
March 2013 from bottle. My first beer from this brewer and not disappointing at all. Amber color with a white head. Caramel aromas with spice, fruit and malt. Good hop balance and a smooth finish.

queenholly (2924) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle. Caramel malt and citrus peel hops aroma. Hazy deep amber with a small off-white head. Biscuity caramel malt and weedy citrus peel hops flavor. Light body, soft carbonation. A bit harsh.

shrubber85 (7644) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle. Light caramel malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Amber with small head. Sweet caramel malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel/quinine flavor. Okay but a bit rough.

RABinCO (1307) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle into a goblet. Pourss a ruddy amber with a slight off white head that leaves medium lacing. Very strange aroma that is sweet and grassy. The oatmeal is really present here, all around, and it works great. Smooth mouthfeel with big grassy, bitter hop character.

jcr (2210) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Aroma of toasted grain, light pine, grapefruit. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Caramel and hops in the flavor. A bit more bitter than amber ales, but not a big hop display that’s promised.

ben4321 (3940) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 7/2/13

Aroma: The nose of this one is fairly hoppy, with mostly tropical/citrus fruits
Appearance: It pours a dark orangish-red color with a foamy beige head and plenty of lace
Flavor: The taste is medium-plus bitter, with some underlying sweet notes to it
Palate: Medium bodied, has a somewhat creamy feel, a little stickiness, and lively carbonation
Overall Impression: This is pretty nice hopped-up red. I didn’t find the oatmeal to be particularly noticeable. The finish is just a hint off, which hurts the drinkability a bit, but overall, this is a solid, hoppy red.

Patrickctenchi (3703) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bomber: Pours amber-red with a frothy, light tan head. Aroma is floral, light oatmeal. Taste is like an APA, a little peel and pine, Steady herbal/leafy bitter....nut, wood. Not what I expected, but not bad.

Strykzone (4965) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bomber. An amber beer that is clear and sports a nice three finger beige head. An aroma that is full of citrusy hops and oatmeal. Malts are almost buried. The flavor brings out those hops nicely. They are nicely bitter and citrus with some pine. They are definitely the star of this show. Oatmeal is interesting here. Malts play second fiddle. Not sure why this was not called an IPA because it pretty much is one. It is a tasty one, too.

Tmoney99 (10712) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle. Poured cloudy dark ruby hue with medium frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Medium aroma of hop and sweet grain malt. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor of sweet malt and citrus hop flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Conflict of styles brew.
