3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours clear dark copper with a creamy/foamy beige head that’s trying to ring lace. Aroma of arguably citrus hop over somewhat toasted caramel - almost a brown sugar sensation. Med body. Flavor is citrus hop plus maybe a bit of veg - then there’s arguable caramel followed by a brown sugar bit. Not sticky, it just makes me think this stuff wanted to be a barley wine. Interesting version. Finishes nice and bitter.
