This was a very good amber ale. I really like the stuff there making at ballast point, i just wish they would make more. Hoppy, nice color. This is a solid brew.

coldbrewky (1721) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bomber via StefanJ! Arrrgh Matey! Immediate surrounding presence of hops as soon as cap is off. Pours a deep translucent amber with just enough light to see the steady carbonation. Head is adequate but still onthe smaller side for my liking. Malt balance to offset the sizable hop intensity is spot on for this strong beer. Ten percent does not show thru. A singular tone of wavy hops about malts from start to finish. A big brew to have before dinner at the steakhouse.

RedSox2004 (1713) - 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

Deep ruby pour, small off white head. Fruity aroma, flavor of caramel, fruit, very tart and bitter. Great mouthfeel.

gkost (1709) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Poured amber. Nose was oxidation, citrus, pine, sweet fruits and toffee. Flavor was sharp biter pine, cardboard, fruity esters, caramel malts. FInishes a bit abrasive with harsh bitterness. This bottle was past its prime and Id love to try it fresh. There was some good potential, but too much of the beer had gone wayside.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Sampled out of a bomber. A big time red ale that has intense malts. Limited carbonation and really a nice warmer on a breezy night.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle from Proof. Deep crimson pour with with a frothy off white head. Aroma of grapefruit and tangerine with caramel malt sweetness. Slightly sweet entry then massive amount of grapefruit, tangerine and pine with a long bitter finish. Nice beer.

Beaver (1692) - 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.
