Bomber, obtained at the brewpub in November. Great big foamy head, on a cloudy grapefruit coloured body. The aroma is a tad funky, it draws you in. Well malted, there is some acidity. Nicely drinkable, and would have ’er again.

Thanks again to puzzl for sharing. Deep amber pour with thick white head. The nose is slightly tart with a bit of pineapple character. There is a slightly wet rancidity in here that I can’t say I’m a huge fan of. It’s quite odd actually.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a large bone colored head over a muddy amber body. Aroma is butter, cinnamon, pastries, alcohol and apple pie. Really nice. Taste is a bit sour with some green apple, and caramel. Doesn’t live up to the aroma. Fizzy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by? Pours a hazy copper color with a large dense beige colored head that leaves thick lacing. The aroma is floral, spicy, grassy with some caramel and bready malts. The flavor is sweet bready malt, caramel, with spices, dry citrus, and floral notes. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a nice dry finish. This is not a style I have had a lot of, but I found this to be enjoyable.

( 750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours very murky rusty orange with huge fluffy lasting head. Nose is funky and fruity. Taste is apricot, alcohol, creamy with a great sweet linger. I also find that it has a good crisp hop kick at the end.
