MacBoost (1821) - Victor, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Clear mahogany pour. Small head. Smells syrupy and sweet. Tastes brutally bitter with a palate shredding brashness. Uncompromising. Sweet. Sticky.

RedSox2004 (1816) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Pours a deep reddish brown/mahogany with a two-finger thick tan head that dissipated to a solid film and left great lacing. Pine hops were the strongest aroma with big roasted malts clearly present. A delicious beer, strong resinous hoppy flavor balanced with strong maltiness that lingered in the background. Medium body with light carbonation that left a real good mouth feel. A big, big awe-inspiring beer

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2012
pour is copper brown with a light brown head and lots of mid size bubbles. Nose is lots of toasted bread and grain with a powerful citrus and pine hop behind it. Lightly green and sweaty. Taste is much of the same, a bit stale piney hop with citrus notes, strong bread crust and cooked caramel. Body is lighter with decent carbonation but a bit of a grainy feel in back.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Appearance: Pours a dark, yet clear amber with an impressive, dense creamy head. Aroma: Danky and sweet hops, sweet malts, and rock sugar candy. Taste: Peppery bitterness, sugary sweetness, finishes with an ultra agressive level of more hop bitterness and a sticky sweet grainy finish. Also of note, flavors that remind me of hot alcohol like Gin or Whiskey. Mouthfeel: Thin yet sticky. Overall: I have a feeling this beer grew up with Double Bastard, or atleast they went to summer camp together. Very bitter, very spicy, not too sticky, and dangerously drinkable after the first few sips, due to its sweetness.

MetalNHopHead (1754) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - AUG 28, 2016
California isnt short on heavily hopped red ales, so its lucky I have lots of love to give. Tongue Buckler has an appropriately subtle name for its mild manners. Deep red pour. Rich, creamy suds. Caramel malt and piney hop aromatics. Big flavor profiles coming from both malt and hops. Toffee, pine, and bitter citrus. Alcohol flavoring is entirely hidden, but youll definitely feel it after downing a bomber. For anyone who like the whole American Strong Ale / Imperial Red thing, this certainly works.

Beaver (1746) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours red amber with a big creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet caramel malt blended with green resiny hops.

The flavor is some sweet nutty caramel malts and lots of fruit with tons of piney resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice big hoppy red. The alcohol is well hidden.

jefcon (1736) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Strong citrus aromas with a citrus bite up front. Drying and somewhat bitter, like orange peel, with a serious amount of IBUs.
