Bottle from the Brewery. Same label as Hopulent, but on the side it clearly says Pro-Am, 6%. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A nice nose of fruity hops and some earthy malt. A big flavor of pine, lemon, quite raw and bitter hops in the finish akin to lemon or grapefruit juice, some light caramel. Somewhat green. Very tasty though.

Big thanks to douglas88 for this one. 22oz bomber pours with a clear copper body supporting a light tan head off foam. The aroma has a pleasing level of dank hoppiness, spicy hops and a bit of citrus mixing with sweet malts around the edges. The taste has a nice rich bitter and flavor hop profile coming from just yummy dank hop earthiness, spicy hops and a bit of lemon lime. In between those notes is a sliver of malt like sweetness. This is really nice and is hitting the spot with its plethora of hoppy goodness.

Bomber. Poured clear light-medium orange with a dense, well-retained eggshell head. The aroma picked up fresh pine, black pepper, and grapefruit over biscuity malts.. fresh and engaging. The flavor found similar stuff.. pine and black pepper bitterness plus touches of dried grass over biscuity and lesser caramel malts.. residual citrus and peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. a little grainy for my liking, and it was almost watery at one point on the middle. Overall this was a very good brew that I’d drink more of (if it was available).
