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.

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

johnnnniee (2146) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 28, 2013
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.

Hazy amber beer, little white head. Crispy palate with sharp minerals and carbonation. Dry. Grainy start with some rye. Trace of toffee. The minerals keep going. A little cream in the malt. Tiny bit of orange hop at the crisp finish. More toffee and rye as well. Okay.
