Thought this would be something like an Irish Red...or a premium/stonger resemblance of Rogue's Dry-Hopped Red Ale. Appearance is a semi-clear reddish to light brown color. It actually seems more of a cross between that and some of Lagunita's IPAs. Lots of grapefruit, pine, malts (caramel seems like). Taste is bitter and sweet at the same time. I am really liking the balance and this isn't a hop bomb, but still has lots of hoppiness. Glad I got to try this and would definitely buy again. Hope to see it in 6-packs. UPDATED 11/29/09: Yup, this is better than I remembered. Noticing the hops somewhat more this time around. Pretty close to a hop bomb, but the sweet malty flavors are there too. One of my favorite beers! jhsnitz1 (153) - Central, South Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2018
UPDATED: APR 9, 2018 Copper color, slightly opaque. Slight alcohol flavor and rich, balanced body, badpuppy69 (347) - Orange, California, USA - MAR 26, 2018
From a Bomber bottle to a Pint glass. Pours a clear Amber with thick creamy head like whip cream that left nice lacing rings on the glass. Aroma is Juicy Tropical fruits resin Mango Passion fruit and huge floral notes. Taste follows the Aroma great with a very nice roasted woody malt backbone. At 8.8% ABV its extremely smooth and easy to drink! Alcohol well hidden! This beer is amazing! Medium to heavy mouthfeel and only $5.50 a 22oz Bomber from the Grocery Store! Best bang for the buck!

Where Purchased: 347ml bottle from the Meijer in Michigan (drive home from Chicago) Consumed: from a pilsner glass.
Aroma: Smells malty, sweet, a little hoppy and slight alcohol.
Appearance : unfiltered medium red gold with decent head that disappears within the first few sips into excellent lacing. Some suspended yeast.
Taste: Very well balanced, but just a tad too much hops. As you get near the bottom there as a more obvious booze.
Palate : medium body. Bittersweet aftertaste. Decent carbonation.
Overall: Very well balanced. Very similar to a Belgian Double with some hop noted. I was glad to try another quality beer from this brewer, and will buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on. bjkusserow (2) - - OCT 20, 2017 does not count

Big, spicy, hoppy for a strong ale. Nice mouth feel. Good malt backdrop. Has a slightly peepery note. Overall - an assertive ale . BlackBeerPG (1108) - Darien, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2017
Taste: Smoked malts, dark fruits, plums, nutty notes with hops that balance it out. Warming alcohol at end. Same with nose. Reddish copper brown color, semi clear, tan head with sticky lace. Medium body. Remind me of part barley with part imperial red. nickel (1304) - UKRAINE - AUG 18, 2017
