Reid (2397) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Dark brown,slightly reddish complexion, nice looking dirty white head. Very nice hoppy strong aroma, piney, floral, great Nice hoppyness in the taste too..pretty dominanat though to be honest the semi-sweet malt profile is large. There seems to be a battle in my mouth bewteen the two, it ends in an uneasy truce as the hops fade out half way down the throat. Very nice. Good smooth palate, slightly sticky but alcohol well hidden. LIked this one a lot, not up with Arrogant Bastard, but would like to taste fresh at brewery.

skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2008
On tap and in a 22oz bottle. On tap, this beer was fantastic. Nicely balanced sweet caramel malt with a blend of citrusy bitter hops. Great finish. Out of the bottle was a completely different, semi-flavorless experience. Odd. Rating is the taste on tap.

spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Aroma is big floral hops. Pours deep rich dark brown with red highlights. Full light tan head with plenty of lacing. Taste is big malt profile with strong citrus hops. Much more balanced than some other strong ales. Alcohol is well hidden. An enjoyable brew will have some more.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Clear mahogany color with a fleeting head. Good aroma is sweet bread and roasted malts. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery. Mild flavors of caramel malts with a bit of roastiness. Has a mild hop flavor to finish. Tastes watered down.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours a transparent copper ruby with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of dry toasty caramel earthy maltiness and some mild grapefruity hops. Starts with a fairly full earthy sweetness and crisp resiny bittering hops. A decent double red, but could use a little more assertive crisp hop character.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours a beautiful red/copper color with a below average head, average lacing and average carbonation. The dominate smell is heavy citrusy floral hops and mild malts. First taste is light, sweet, and a mild crisp hoppy note. Light in body and taste. Not bad - not remarkable either
