Bomber from Bottle Trek. A very thick looking red pour, almost like it’s congealing or something. Decent fluffy head with a very fruity, floral aroma. I don’t know why but for some reason I was expecting the usual American double red, which is to say an Arrogant Bastard knockoff. While this one is certainly well-hopped, it’s got a nicely balanced quality all its own, with citrus hops, sweet malts, and a fairly crisp finish. Good one.

Ungstrup (36462) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2008
Draft. A hazy dark amber beer with a thick orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of straw, and so is the flavor though also added a strong note of hops.

Hmmm, normally I love these big red brews but this one seemed to be lacking something but then again Im comparing against Lagunitas and Alesmiths imp red which I loved both. Still solid though and well balanced. Glad I tried it.

ChainGangGuy (4881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany-hued body with a thin ring of white bubbles up top. Smell: Toasted grains and caramel with a distant, though distinct spicy hoppiness. Taste: Grainy, caramel maltiness with a light amount of sweetness. Even some roast in there too. Spicy, woody hop character with a medium-high bitterness. Hint of lemon zest. Dry, grainy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Adequate and drinkable, I’ll give it at least that much.

robforbes (2228) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 old rating: 7/5/7/4/16 - 3.9 pour is a semi-hazy maroon, with a small tan head, and very good lacing. smell of spice, some cocoa, caramel, some brown sugar, malt, and roasted nuts. taste is smooth and creamy, caramel, some spice, hoppy, a little brown sugar, some bitter-sweet chocolate, and a touch of nuts, ends refreshing, nicely bitter, with a touch of citrus. overall a well rounded strong ale.

Darker amber color. Aroma is malt dominated with notes of sweet caramel and crystal malt. Grapefruit and citrus there as well. Medium to full body, fairly sweet.

fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Pours to an opaque red/brown color. Not much head. Caramely, roasty aroma. Taste is fantastic. Lots of hops in the aftertaste, some sweetness. Need to re-rate to get more exact info. Regardless, it was the best red I’d had.
