COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Knuckles on the felt. Hit me. Dealer sends another -- a SEVEN with a Jack in the center. Jeff Kuhnie must have rigged the deck. Warrior, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops lend ample bitterness to this roasty Black Double IPA. SEVEN reminds us of a chocolate orange. Oh, it’s a Cascadian dark ale? Whatever you say, Buster.

Bomber pours a dark brown with moderate, lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma is strong with earthy hops, citrus hops, and roasted malts. Taste is bitter as expected, wtth a bit of sweetness in the middle. Alcohol well hidden. Body is medium with light carbonation. A very solid strong black IPA I hope to catch again.

Bomber. Pours a dark brown (almost opaque... unless you stick it under a halogen lamp) with a thin off-white head, and okay lacing. Nose is slightly dank hops, some hay, roasted barley and malt. Mouth is very dry, medium-full bodied with a slight bit of ash mingling with the pronounced Amarillo hops and roast up front, citrus and grassy notes follow, bitternbess throughout. Decent.

Bomber to pint glass. Orange really comes through so do the roasted malts. Sold as a "chocolate orange". I don’t get the chocolate. Still very drinkable and interesting.

Pours mild black without any head. Aroma is fragrant of orange, roast malts, and burnt bread. Bitter on the front and then finishes with an emphasis on the orange. The chocolate advertised doesn’t show through as much to me. Unique for sure but not a favorite.
