Bottle shared at HWOH. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with an ok lasting head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, orange and pine and even a bit of bubblegum. Grainy malt flavor backed up with some caramel malts, and a good amount of hops- lightly spicy and more citrus. Sweet finish but still lots of bitterness and somewhat dry.

Reid (2051) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Very "English" looking ale in my pint glass, dark orange/amber with a nice sized frothy/bubbly light tan head. The aroma is actually quite hoppy in character, but there is plenty malts and a good dose of spiciness. The taste however is very much on the malty side..toffeeish,caramel malts with black coffee hints, there is a litle hopping noticable, it perks up the mouthful near the end, then the beer finishes with a long, long bitter malt aftertaste with spicy ,peppery undertones. Excellent palate to this one, quite thick. I found this a nice enough beer, but i think for me one bomber at a sitting is enough..the bitter aftertaste tends to deter another bottle.

Courtesy of jsquire. Small ivory head that mostly diminished, sparse lacing, hazy, fizzy carbonation, and an orange hue. Sweet hoppy nose. Malt and hoppy flavor. Tingly, hoppy palate. Medium body.

Out of the bomber bottle. Short lived cream colored head with some pine hop in the nose. This is a sweet beer that reminded me of an orange Jolly Rancher candy. Orange peel and grapefruit rind with some apple. This is sort of one dimensional, but if you like hops it will be your dimension.

omhper (20762) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Deep golden. Grapefruit hop aroma. Sweet with plenty of hops. The malt is there, but isn’t noticed. The hops OTOH are very much in your face. There’s grapefruit and licorice. Lingering very bitter finish.
(To give English speaking any idea how silly it looks when a letter like "Ö" is used in the wrong place I suggest that they rename the beer to "BIFRQST".)

AlabastorJones (810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2006
copper body with a fairly headie tan head, buttery toffee hop flavor, well balanced and tastey, slightly roasty, strong finish, if you run into one of these guys in a dark alley, take a swig out of the little guy, and say "you were right Alabastor, he is a tastey little man"

JoeMcPhee (8837) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2006
Pale amber beer with a thin white head. Light spicy aroma, notes of honey, some spicy/woody golding type of hops. Flavour also shows light zesty malts, honey and some woody hops. Fairly peppery and alcoholic with a fairly bitter finish. Sort of a lightly hopped ESB. Tasty brew.

This was just not up to par on my palate. Something was unbalanced and off kilter. Hazy orange, darker to a lighter brown, in the light. Small fluffy head, nice appearance with some signifigantly sticky lacing. The body had hardly any carbonation and had a sour warm and wet mouthfeel, with some very string vinous and woody notes. Lots of sour fruit flavors, interacting with alot of maltiness. This one to me just went downhill from the very beginning. It is unbalanced to me overall.
