Draft, then bomber. Pours deep brownish ruby with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is juicy hops, fruit, caramel malt, mild peppery notes. Tastes rich, with a solid caramel malt bill, earthy, fruity hops, and a complex finish. Leaves you wanting more.

Bottle shared at Andy, Joe, Max, and Zach’s hotel room after night one of RBSG. Pours a lightly hazy brown with a thin white head. Slight toast and grain on the nose, a bit sweet. Medium bodied, grain and some caramel. Long bitter finish with some gentle toast.

Deep amber pour. The nose is rich and a little bit spicy. Intensely hoppy. Soft fruitiness with a touch of sweetness on the back. Fruity with a nice aromatic spiciness. Pretty solid stuff.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2008
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 mostly clear deep amber body. Big, wet nose of caramel cherry malt, sticky cedar scented hops, disjointed and a bit messy. Big full and chewy crystal malt, some wet hop qualities, greenness, but not really that fresh or fruity, more like veggies (celery). Okay overall, but messy, and comes across as a hoppy red ale.

Ibrew2or3 (8405) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Courtesy of gunhaver. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma is malty sweet with crystal malts, some citrus hops and a bit of earthiness. The taste has some pine and citrus with a decent hop flavor and a nice layer of hop bitterness. Dries out a tad into the finish creating a good balance for this tasty brew.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7300) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Sampled on draft this beer poured a ruby caramel color with a large khaki head. The aroma was fruity, floral and lightly piney hops. The flavor was bitter, tart, fruity and piney with a floral hop undertone and light sweet malts. The finish is short and hoppy. Nice.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Transparent deep golden bronze color with a well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of fresh citrusy grapefruity hops and a touch of pale malty sweetness. Body starts with good fullness and a nice amount of sweetness which is well-balanced with the resiny bittering and flavor hops before a crisp, bittersweet finish. A nice, very drinkable IPA.

Beerman6686 (6543) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2010
This poured a nice amber color with a large white head. Aroma was nice medium amount of floral and citrus hops but nothing too crazy. Flavor was much the same at the beginning a nice blend of different types of hops, but unfortunately the bitterness fades quickly into a rather bland biscuty finish.
