Poured from 22oz bottle at club wakonda. Dark red pour with lacy bubbly white head. Malty grain aroma. The taste is fruity and hoppy like an IPA with red beer traits. Good beer zebra (2097) - Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2013

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with off white head. Nose and taste of caramel malt, earthy resin, tree sap, maple, leaves and dank citrus peel. Medium body. j12601 (10955) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2017
On tap at Underground. Pours a hazed crimson tinged amber with a medium sized white head. Soft malt, a bit of citrus, a hint of sweetness. Medium bodied, soft and warm, a bit of warmth, malt, soft bitterness. Slow toast and warming alcohol into the finish. Boozy.

Bomber (Thanks Alex!). Pours a kinda murky tarnished-copper color, minimal head that didnít wait around long. Nose is pine and citrus, some tropical fruit, some malt hidden in there as well. Mouth is sticky and medium-bitter up front, fruity hops and some malt, orange zest, apricot, hint of caramel and slightly astringent on the back end. Blew off my fireworks almost 2 weeks ago, but this was still good with potato salad and some beef jerky. Solid brew from P-Dubs as always.
deyholla (11503) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of resin and pine with a strong backbone of caramel and toffee. Flavor starts smooth with sweet grain and caramel and has a resinous pine finish. Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2013
22 oz. bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Batch #161.
A: Pours dark cherry color with a thin white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a bubbly ring that leaves stick sheets of lace down the glass.
S: This is guy is generously hopped. Lots of pine needle and grapefruit with a mild citrus backing. Sweet bread malts balance it out.
T: The malt is more forward in the taste. Light spice with some bready flavors. The hops are more bitter than the nose suggested, but still maintains the piney notes and light grapefruit zest. There is an underlying sweetness from the malts, but itís very light. As it warms the hops are a little more earthy as well. Slighlty boozy on the finish.
M: Medium bodied with a nice medium carbonation. Little stick to this guy.
O: Very solid imperial red. I would have liked a touch more caramel malt to give it a nice sweetness against the hops, but overall it was enjoyable.
Serving type: bottle

Pours a nice red rust color with a soapy sheet of light tans. Smells of sharp hops (reminds me of a butt load of columbus), some gingerbread dough folded with warm butter, some sugar, maybe a hint of booze. Flavor is like a tasty malty shake with some bitterness and a bit of vanilla. Iím surprised at the deviation from the nose that the flavor takes, but itís welcome. Thin bodied with lower carb and and off dry finish, this doesnít meet my expectations of a red - fuller with fleeting, sharp carb and a nice dry finish. Not a bad beer, some folks might hate to hear this, but with a litter Special B malt and some time, this has the potential to be really, really good beer. I like it. drjay44 (3680) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2016
651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium thick, well retained, tiny bubbled, ivory head, with slight lacing, over a slightly hazy copper (SRM 16) body.......nose is heavy American hops, with pine, resin, pineapple, citrus peel, dust, grass, light allium, mild toffee/caramel malts, balance to the hops.....taste is moderately sweet with light toffee/caramel tones from the malts, with heavy pine, resin, hints of citrus peel, light pineapple notes, mild grass, slight allium, becoming mildly to moderately bitter, the sweetness lingers through......mouth feel, medium sticky body, alcohol burn present, fizzy carbonation with light acid. This is a very hop dominated, especially in the aromas, beer. The malts are relatively simple and just barely balance the hops in flavor and additionally the bitterness is quite low. This is another illustration of evolution in the craft industry where pure hop bitterness seems to becoming anathema. BJCP 8/3/13/4/6 jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 21, 2013
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep ruby/brown with lacy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of caramel and toffee maltiness plus some bread/dough with a with some floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer but not the best.
