Poured into a tulip glass from a 22oz bomber.

Pours a nice dark amber color its almost a muddy brown. There is a nice ecru light eggshell white color. Nice sticky lacing as the brew goes down.

Aroma is of pungent grassy hops. SOme slight grapefruit and tangerine citrus notes are present from the alpha acids. However the nice thick rich malt body is very well profiled in the nose with notes of caramel.

Flavor starts off with strong caramel notes. Malty notes a-plenty with a delicious and enticing spicy hop backbone. Notes of citrus and dank flowery notes are present. The brew is pretty robust both on the grain and the hops. Nice crisp mouthfeel with notes of resinous hops and a sticky yet bitter dryness.

Pours a mostly clear red tinged amber, billowing thick cream colored head, big splotches of thick lace on the glass. Smell: big caramel, fruit note, little leafiness and pine. Sweet, malt dominated aroma. Taste: alcohol hit, caramel, dried stone fruit, hops start to cut through the sweetness... pine and a little citrus rind. Sugary. Syrupy into creamy then bails into hop soup and thins out into a bitter end. Bitter, sure, but muted hop flavor and aroma. Not so good.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid citrus forward hop presence.

CBC - Red God, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a dark cloudy caramel amber red hued with a small head and good ropey lacing.

Smell - Piney hops, amber/red malts with some breadiness. Somewhat faint aroma, not bad. Some alcohol in the nose.

Taste - Hoppy and piney with definite alcohol, pretty good balance.

Mouthfeel - Heavy-medium bodied with low carbonation. Hot and boozy. OK drinkability, starts to falter a bit here.

Overall - Not bad, a little over the top. Alcohol content detracts from the quality here slightly.
