4.18/5 rDev +2.2%
Poured a beautiful red amber color in a pint glass with a 1 finger head.
Light grapefruit, citrus, and a hint of vanilla wafted from the head.
The mouth feel is moderate which I like in this style. Sometimes American Ambers/Red Ales can be too carbonated.
The taste is wonderful- this beer tastes like a DIPA, even though the color is different: intensely hoppy, grapefruit, some toffee, vanilla, and malty.
The finish is also similar to a DIPA- some hoppy bitterness.
Excellent beer, and easy to drink. I will buy this again-soon.

3.84/5 rDev -6.1%
On draft at Newport Pizza in Ocean Beach. $6 - poured into a standard pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazed mahogany hue with a decent off-white head that dissipates within a few sips. Nice lacing. Smell is sweet and malty, a lot of carmel and fresh cut grain, mild hop aroma takes over at the end which was a pleasant surprise. Taste follows suit - lightly toasted grain, carmel sweetness with a nice dose of hoppy bitterness on the back end to keep this from being an overly sweet malt bomb. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with lingering bitterness from the hops.
Side note...amazing hop burps for a red ale.

4/5 rDev -2.2%
Bomber from Bear World Watertown NY for $8
Appearance - Reddish Brown colour with an average size beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, hops, caramel, apricots, pineapple
Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and quite a bit of hops. There is also some apricots, pineapple, and a bit of grapefruit.
Overall - Another winner from Alesmith. A tad pricey perhaps for a repeat purchase, but very well crafted and definitely worth trying once.

4.34/5 rDev +6.1%
A: Beautful shade of red with a yellowish off white head. Tons of sticky lace and really good retention.
S: As the bottle says, lots of citrusy and piney hops with plenty of toasty and biscuity malt to back it up. This is how the style should be. Not another hop bomb. It should be malty!
T: Same as the nose. Lots of resiny, fruity, tasty hops. Balanced is an understatement.
M: Crazy smooth and full of endless flavor. So malt heavy but not cloying nor too sweet.
O: For what it is, this is a great beer. Not much more you can ask or expect from the style. Gets better with every sip as it warms.
