Look it's an orange a dark Amber.
Smell is caramel, brown sugar, citris , spruce and Bubblegum.
Tastes very sweet caramel bitter combination.
Mouthful is quite effervescent good thing go to the tongue nice carbonation good overall mouth feel.
Overall this is a pretty good beer if you like this type of Red Ale Style Beer you should like this but do you think it's a bit too sweet but it has a good flavor

Poured into a snifter, the appearance was a semi-rugged dark amber/red color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Not much lace, seemed somewhat filmy yet bubbly and gone within seconds.
The aroma had some sweet caramel/toffee smooth malts, light nuttiness, light wafer and ended with a little bit of grassy to citrusy hops.
The flavor was moderately sweet pulling some bitterness in from the faint citrusy hops. Nice aftertaste of those malts, hops seem barely a part of the aftertaste, but I didn't mind.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV seemed to be as projected. Malty leaning finish.
Overall, pretty good as an American strong ale. I could come back to.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly cloudy amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is slight hops and sweet yeast. The taste is malt and hops. A very good beer.

from a 22 oz. bomber into an imperial pint
-beautiful slightly hazy amber with a creamy off-white head
-malt, slightly sweet nose
-sweet, crisp, and "malty" with a vague hint of citrus
-nice carbonation, a bit of an astringent finish (not a bad thing)
-very delicious and potentially dangerous given its 8% ABV. Fortunately, I only bought one bomber.
