DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2013
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, I’m thinking.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby amber with a large creamy yellowed beige head. Crisp and clean citrus on the nose, hoppy and bright, not overly pungent though. Medium bodied, smooth and lightly sweet. Picks up a faint metallic tinge, oatmeal smoothing out everything, earthy with some dank hoppiness. The creamy sweet body is an interesting change from the standard red ale. Balanced fairly well, gentle hoppy bitterness on the finish, almost the faintest hint of cocoa as well. Easy drinking.

KyotoLefty (9123) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2014
Draught at MacGregors. Brow-orange color, fine low head. Very fruity nose; cherry, orange, lemon. Very fruity flavor of cherry, orange, pineapple, grape. Earthy hops, some pine, nice bitterness. A strange but good fruitiness. Good beer.

alexsdad06 (8898) - Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2013
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.

b3shine (8045) - Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2013
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.

blipp (8011) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Fruity citric hops, caramel malts, and a nice lingering candy hop bitterness. Full bodied and quite tasty.

jredmond (7402) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Andrew at Dadtoberfest 2012. Pours a deep amber red body with light off white head and lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, pine and tropic hop. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet caramel malts, resin, pine, and light bitter grapefruit. Nice.

PorterPounder (7223) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2014
Albany, Ga. - Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper, very slight off-white head - a touch of lace. Aroma is pleasant, a hint of spruce, some apricot fruitiness. Flavor is solid and well balanced with some solid grapefruit bitterness, a touch of yeasty bready notes, some minty side notes. Mouthfeel has a nice crispness to it. Nothing unique or special, but a good solid drink.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2012
draft at Coles, Buffalo NY. deeper amber crimson pour. Big malty nose, some citrus hops. Bready maltiness, toasty. Oatmael adds a nice touch. Not a huge fan of amber but this is a pretty good one

Strykzone (6632) - 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.
