Hazy copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of rye, spice, caramel, and flowers. The taste is much sweeter with less hop and spice than expected. Medium bodied and slightly dry with mild carbonation. Slight metallic aftertaste.

Goodgrief (1806) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle. Pour the exact color of Snapple tea. Needed a vigorous pour to generate head. A little flat on the tongue and no hop presence. Sweet and grainy. Maybe it was old. I don’t know.

stevencon (460) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Tap at monks. Light hazy orange brown color strong white head with good lacing. Floral and spicy earth notes from the hops and rye. Sweet caramel earth sour rye taste. Dry finish and enjoyable. One of the better offerings from blue point.

EithCubes (5068) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bomber. Sweet nose heavy in PNW hops and rye, very strong caramel and even burned/scorched undertones. Pours orange-copper with a yellow-tinged, foamy dense head. Tastes of heavy rye with some caramel and stale rye, some earth and woody/fruity hops, medium-strong sweetness is a little too much, alcohol hidden, spicy and floral notes thankfully not. Relatively smooth medium body. Good, zinging hop flavor but the rest is something of a lightweight.

AirForceHops (3427) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 14, 2013
Paid $3.99 for a 22 oz. bottle@ Hampton Falls Village Market. Hazy orange amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of earthy hops, caramel and rye. Taste is better than I was expecting. Sweet fruity notes up front with balanced malt leading to a spicy rye finish. The bitterness is cut short by the sweetness. Medium body. Slick texture. I drained the bomber very easy and I have to say I could drink more of this. Nice Stuff. I’m sure it would be pleasant on cask as well. Nice brew.

Tap. Pours clear reddish amber with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is caramel and rye, touch of pine. Lightly sweet, very light bitterness, light rye spiciness. Meh.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light golden orange color with a small white head. Nose is light rye with some sweaty malt notes. Palate is somewhat crisp but a bit sticky. Flavors of light grassy hops, rye, and sugary malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a crystal clear deep copper color with a nice big beige head that persists forever. The aroma is caramel and toffee with an herbal earthy edge and faint traces of yeasty plastic phenols. The flavor holds much of the same attributes from the nose. Caramel toffee and butterscotch mixed with earthy floral hops and a weird herbal almost medicinal flavor. Medium body with moderate level of carbonation and a slick bubbly mouthfeel. I thought this one was ok but nothing special. Its got a weirdness to it that I just couldn’t get into.
