Amber color almost Brown, hoppy citrucy Carmel nutty coffee very malty aroma, taste the same as aroma slightly bitter malt is there on the end to balance it out.

Bottle. Pours dark red with a small white head. Awesome hop aroma of pine and grapefruit with hints of grass and peach. Huge hop flavor of pine, grass, grapefruit, orange and peach lightly balanced by some subtle caramel. Overwhelming but tasty bitter hop finish with a touch of alcohol. Great beer.

Tap at the Boilermaker, Philly - 24/05/12.
Dark amber orange with a small head that soon thins.
Pine aroma, toasty malt, hops and grapefruit on the nose.
Taste follows on from the nose with sweet caramel malt, citrus hop, sweet candies.
Medium bodied with an alcohol kick. Thisis12ptfont (1192) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Fresh aromas of yeast, bready malts and earthy hops. Darkened red/amber with some nice lacing against the glass. Very earthy bitter hops on the top with syrupy caramel malt undertones. There is a huge presence of alcohol on the finish. Overall, this is a delicious red ale with a lot of hops and alcohol. Intense and well done. A- rating. crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2012
A very nice red ale, dk why I always forget to rate my ballast point beers. Hoppy, not quite a tongue buckler but close. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Bomber. Pours clear mahogany, looking like orangy-brown fall foliage through indirect light. Nose is rich, heavy resiny hops and a huge malt bill. Almost barleywiney nose. Tastes very astringent and resiny, with a huge hop bill that tells me the 107 claim is likely right on the money. The malt is there, but cannot match the hops in this. Mild vinous fruit flavors late, and some caramel malt, but the hops are center stage here. This one is unique, but way too astringent to be great.
