100+ IBU’s. You can definitely taste it. Very very hard hitting, and a heavy alcohol content.

This is a nice beer that leaves looking for more. What's nice about is that it is easy to find in the Portland Suburbs. $5.38 at Fred Meyer.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber, thanks Craig! Caramel malt aroma with a good hoppy backbone of citrus and piney hop notes. Pours reddish-amber colored with a thin tan head with poor retention and some lacing. Starts with good caramel malt sweetness with the hops lingering in the background. Finishes dry with citrus and piney hop flavors coming to the foreground assertively with a string bitter kick that lingers on the palate. Pretty nice red with the only complaint being the overly bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty decent beer overall with a heavy bitterness but an unbalanced caramel and crystal malt. The pour is a dark, bright amber with a thick, foamy yellowish head. The nose is sweet and fruity with pine and citrus. Balance is off. Bitter finish!

Pine grapefruit and orange hops in the nose and flavor. Heavy malt. Body is thick. This is ok, but doesn’t showcase the hops like I like. Overly bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in Seattle. Slightly cloudy, deep orange, with thick creamy head. Dense pine-bitter hop and plenty of rich sweet malt. Big red, for sure. Clean heavy fruits and bitter pine. On the heavier-hop end of the big reds. Pretty interesting and tasty, but sure is big and teetering on too much. I like it though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours two fingers of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is big malt with a little lemon.
The taste is lemon and pine bitterness with a huge malt to make it easy to drink.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.

This was a delicious earthy, caramel concoction. A very deliciously boozy red ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber brown with good off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of caramel malt and earthy hops. Taste is big and malty. Thin for what it is with well-hidden booze.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Âmbar totalmente turva, espuma bege de média formação e persistência. Aroma adocicado caramelado, lupulada, madeira, com aumento da temperatura evidencia a levedura, potente. Paladar de dulçor predominante, apesar do amargor também intenso. Corpo oleoso, baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste duradouro, amadeirado, intenso, saboroso.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and pine with some tropical fruits and caramel. Taste is a pine and citrus hop bitterness balanced nicely with a tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with nice carbonation that tickles the palate. Overall, a well crafted brew that I strongly recommend to others.
