COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t spend this Single Awareness Day alone – grab a beer! This red-blooded cousin of Evil Dead Red Ale, our Halloween Brew, is a beautiful crimson color. Notes of caramel, toast, and bittersweet chocolate balance an intense bouquet of floral hop aromas that we know you’ll fall in love with. The finish leaves a pleasant, full-bodied sweetness on the palate that won’t spread angry rumors about you to all your friends like that one time when I was…ohh…uhh…Happy Valentine’s Day!

nealblind (2007) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 2, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2015 DARK red brown pour big sand head. Aroma of pine, caramel. Tastes tobacco, woody, pine, slight choco, not as sweet as it smell which is good. Bittersweet through and through like a good British bitter. Could be enhanced by more perfume yeast. Aroma hops not all that strong, but might be because it’s 6 mo old. second time - bright red brown Aroma cherries tart sweet orange. tastes chocolate Cherry cordial

From a bottle shared by jheath99! Pours dark tawny brown with a creamy bubbly beige head. Smells like pine, hops, resin, herbs. Tastes very malty, like pine, earth, hops, grapefruit. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

Bottle shared by jheath99. Pours clear, dark amber/mahogany with creamy beige head. Aroma cereal and bready malts, floral and spicy hops, mixed berries, and faint brandy. Flavor is chewy malt profile, dark fruit sweetness, light floral hops, and faint caramel; dry, toasted finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Pour is more mahogany-brown than mahogany-red. But coupled with a lasting tan-head it’s a delight in the glass. Aroma is fairly sweet and enticing. At this point in its life (3 months old) the aroma is caramel-malt driven. Also some pine, spice and a hint of berry-hop presence. Taste is much the same except the hop presence presents more citrus than berry - maybe some grapefruit, tangerine. Palate is dry, medium bodied. Is an amber/red IPA mash-up. Despite the slightly generic flavor profile it is delicious. An accomplished beer.

Bomber from the Andersons in Sylvania. Reddish brown pour. Aroma sweet caramel, floral, cocoa. Tastes are toasty, toffee, orange, little spice, pine, biscuit. Yeah, tasty - very drinkable.

Interesting. Good aroma. Good mouth feel. Delicious. Had high hopes after seeing it was ranked among the best ambers and my expectations were met. Definitely worth a try for any amber fans.

edwardbass (865) - Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Reddish brown with a big tan head. Aroma is roasty malt. Flavor at first is spicy hops, and then malty sweetness follows, some chocolate and candied orange. Excellent beer, even if I’m not a big fan of the style.

3.5
notalush (5955) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Bomber - typical hoppy American red ale, but a decently constructed one, I suppose - malts are toasty and sweet (caramel, pumpernickel, some raisin) - some acidity through the middle braces for the earthy, woody hops and bitterness that follows - finish is a little watery - it’s good for what it is, but I can walk into plenty of brewpubs across the country and get pretty much the same beer.
