I have more pics of this Bolete but they are out of focus.They show the Coloration Amanita was referring to.Until I looked further I didnt think to look for a sub-species.To me a Bitter Bolete was a Bitter Bolete.But since joining this site I am amazed at how many there really are in the N.American Fungi Kingdom.Thanks Again for opening my eyes.

On doing a little more digging and buying another guide I would agree to Noahs ID.
