shrubber85 (7290) - 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 (1135) - 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 (2160) - 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 thatís promised.

ben4321 (3750) - 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 didnít 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 (3401) - Coxís 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 (4781) - 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 (10400) - 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.

Bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a cloudy orange brown color with a dense medium sized beige head. The aroma was sweet, citrus juice, herbal, and soapy. The flavor was similar, but had a hint of oatmeal, metal, mild bitterness and prickly carbonation. This was a bit of a mess.

22oz bottle, thanks to radarsock. Totally hazy darker orange brown color. Thin khaki head. Sort of bubbly, but it has good retention. Just a couple loose dots of lace. Stronger, soft carbonation, Medium body. Kind of a metallic flavor, some spicy hop. Lightly fruity. Weird light bite, light bitter, more sweet. Nothing really working for me with this brew. Must be a bad or old bottle, Iím thinking.

Bomber to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks alright; a murky orangish-brown with fluffy light beige head. Smells sweet, citrusy, and bitter. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. Average on the palate.
