Clear brilliant dark amber hue with a thin persistent light beige cap. The nose is lovely and full of rich, bready, boozy sweet crystal and amber malts and a bit of earthy balanced bitterness. Smooth and balanced flavor full of Amber malt, smooth earthy grassy bitterness, a little booze heat, and a semisweet amber nuttiness on the warm finish.

Dark red. Malty. Caramel. Reminds me of fat tire. On tap at brewery. Nice red. slowrunner77 (13231) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Bread and toffee, & pine and grapefruit play off of each other pretty well in this strong darker red. Nice balance and flavor, moderately bitter and a touch sweet. Bomber. chinchill (5397) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2016

Deep ruby-brown body with a very good looking and durable head.

Some spicy rye flavor is obvious. Initially, mild bitterness, but this builds to a moderate level.

Bomber. Grapefruit citrus hop aroma with sweet bready malt and piney hop notes. Pours reddish-amber colored with a thin off-white head with decent retention and lacing. Starts with sweet bready malt and grapefruit hoppiness. Finishes dry with some piney hop bitterness and the grapefruit acidity lingering on the palate. Pretty well balanced red ale. stchloe (1138) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2015

Bottle from Brewfest. 8.6% version. This one was on "mark down" so I expected the worst. I was totally wrong. Hazy reddish amber with lasting tan head and lace. Pungent citrus and and leafy hop aroma. Mild caramel biscuity malt fruity sweetness with assertive rindy bitter dry finish. Medium long toasted caramel fruity finish. Reminds of Hop Head Red. Very good/excellent. . bpreo (3011) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 16, 2014
