Bottle shared at poker. Aroma and flavor of floral hop, some malt. Just wasn't a big fan of this one. Astringent and rough on the palate. Eh, ok beer.

Sample at a weekly bottle sharing event at Red House BBQ in Tehachapi, CA on 02/02/2013. Pours a dark ruby-amber color with a medium thick and foamy beige head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel and hops. Medium to full body with flavors of caramel malt, herbal hops and fruit. The finish is malty with a short grassy hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy off-white head that tried to lace. Aroma of darker bread with a hint of treacle. Med body. Flavor isn’t sticky sweet, but it’s dark brown sugar, a little heat, and some damn strong hop. This doesn’t finish like a relaxing sipper. This ale is strongly bitter - yet allows the odd sweet note (treacle for one) to pop out once in awhile. Good stuff.
