On tap @ Bridgeport. Clear light amber colored beer with a white head. A lot of caramel malts, bread, and sweet fruits. There’s a little bit of a perfume character to the nose. Very floral. The flavor is a little bitter on the back end, but it’s mostly sweet caramel and berry sort of esters. Pretty sweet and malty, which I guess is to be expected. djd07 (16289) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a medium creamy beige head that lasts awhile that leaves sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt with caramel and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a rye malt and light hoppy finish. Hides the alcohol well, a good American strong ale from Bridgeport. bhensonb (15967) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours rather amber with a small beige head. Aroma is light malty with something floral. Med body. Has a noticeable rye character. Hop is earthy and floral. This is really solid flavor. Like this one. Ratman197 (15619) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2011

A triple hopped beer, where have I seen that before?
It pours a clear amber/red with a frothy white head that dissipates with a bit of lacing.
The smell is very sweet in the aroma. Very basic actually, not much hops at all. It has a little bit of candied orange and vanilla icing, not what i was expecting.
The flavor is sweet and tangy with a medium bitterness. It is mostly malt-driven and the malts just are super flat, they do nothing to compliment the hops. The hops are mainly citrusy but also a bit tangy. There is a hint of vegetal bitterness in the finish.
I had a NN last night and can’t help but compare the two, this one pales.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of “the Boss” blutt59) Pours a clear amber body with a moderate cream head. Aroma of caramel, grass, mustiness, and white grape skins. Flavor of caramel, grass, florals, and toasted grain with a dry, somewhat bitter finish. slowrunner77 (13205) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
"looking at the other reviews, sounds like this one might not be old like i thought, just a little on the bland side for a "triple hopped double red ale". a little orange-ish citrus and caramel malt. a little thin for the abv. not bad, but a little dsiappointing after the build-up. About average for a red."

On tap at Skinny Slims. Pours a clear deep amber red with a creamy tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grassiness with a backing sweet grain and hint of caramel. Flavor is similar with a nice grassy note supported by sweet grains and a touch of cookie.
