15th Dec 2017. Draft in the Stadium Brewery, Aliso Viejo. Red hue to the body, clear and clean, on top a lightly tanned covering. Toasted, roasted malts in both the nose and taste, some red fruits too. Decent. TimE (6349) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 18, 2017
This to me is a bench mark American Strong ale. Deep ruby red color. Massive nose of pine and cookie dough. Very full bodied, with immense chuwiness and rip roaring hops. Very full bodied. Everything is balanced in the right place. Big, but after a pint I wished there was more. Really really good. anders37 (27892) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2017

On tap at the brewery. Clear dark amber orange with a foamy khaki head and moderate lace. Aromas of citrus, toasted malt and candied citrus. Taste is much the same with citrus and toast flavors dominant, accompanied by floral hop bitterness. Medium body, low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel and a lingering candy sweetness/tartness in the finish.

Expensive as all HELL 22oz bomber pours with a clear dark amber colored body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a good dose of spicy woodiness, spicy oak, some malts and molasses and then grassy sort of herbal sort of woody (more wood) hoppiness. The taste delivers bitter to near resiny pine hops flowing quickly into spicy wood and then malt to molasses to crystal malt sweetened grassy herbal hops. It stays spicy with wood to midway where a modest level of black tea like earthy hops are noticed creating a tasty additional facet to the experience. Fun yet overpriced beer.
