22 oz bomber from Blue Dog Pub in Lansdale. Poured a great lloking rust colored amber body with a large full frothy off white head. Aroma was nice that has a lovely hop syrup sweetness, flowers, honey topped bread, citrus and candy. Full chewy body with soft carbonation and not much of an aftertaste or finishing bite, no trace of ABV on this one. Flavor unfortunately doesnt have the sweetness but more of a vegetable touch. Notes of dry grainy toast, green veggies, dry hops. Although the flavor drops off this is still a solid beer.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2011
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, caramel, and slight hops. Poured amber in color with a small, rocky, creamy, off-white/tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Very sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, caramel, and slight hops. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, caramel, and hint of hop finish. Where are all of the hops???

kramer (5108) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Tap, Hbg location. Pours a hazy copper body with a small tight bubbled off-white head. Nice citrusy hoppy nose with fairly restrained maltiness, letting the hops shine bright. The flavor shows an aggressive bitterness, citrusy with lots of grapefruit. Moderate lingering bitterness. Medium bodied with a little resiny stickiness and moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice beer, especially for ABC.

BeerandBlues2 (10145) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 20, 2011
22-oz. bottle. Pours lightly hazy rich copper with a huge, frothy and sticky off-white to light gold head, long retention (still over an inch after 5 minutes), and excellent lacing. The bubbles are tiny and slow-to-rise. Aroma is immediate fresh, fragrant fruity and floral hops, light notes of peppery alcohol, subdued caramel and honey malts, and an apricot essence near the end. The flavor starts out too heavy and hot on the alcohol, which is surprising for an 8% ABV beer. Heavy hop flavors of grass and flowers peek through the alcohol and there is a hint of sweet malt under it all. The alcohol really dries out the finish and leaves some hop bitterness behind. Medium body though the alcohol makes it seem thinner, heavy warmth, and medium carbonation. I had high hopes for this beer based on its appearance and aroma, but it really falls apart after that.

auerbrau (3179) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 18, 2011
22oz bottle, purchased at Wegman’s - State College, PA. Moderate pine and citrus hop aroma. Flavors are solid, but trend malty and middling. This has a nice pine heat to it, like Bigfoot, but never really ties it all together. In the end, I want something a little more vibrant. Entered from my mobile device.

thome50 (1083) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2011
Bottle via trade from the other site. Pours a deep amber with frothy white head. Aroma is overly malty with only a faint trace of pineapple and citrus. Tastes of malt through the entire taste. Hops come in around the 3/4 mark but are faint to non-existent pine. Overall: Pretty sure this was an old bottle but since there is no bottle date I’m going to rate it still. Very bland and not something I would ever need to drink again. I prefer hops in my DIPAs. Please bottle date!

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bomber from Capone’s and Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours clear dark caramel colored with minimal off-white head. Nose is caramel malty, with florals, piney hops. Tastes sticky, resiny hoppy, with notes of caramel, florals, and a very IBU-laden palate that stays very hoppy and resiny throughoiut. Needs a bit more malt balance.

A hazed reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a doughy malt over floral hops, faint and restrained. In mouth, a good malt base with nice floral c-hops, grapefruits, medium bodied. On tap at brewery restaurant, April 10th, 2011.
