bhensonb (11491) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bomber from Bottle Trek. Amber color with a decent beige head. Aromas of sweetish malt and citrus/floral hop. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted caramel and floral hop. It is wonderfully bitter, but there seems to be malt to balance. IBU 80 is believable, but it’s not harsh. Wonderful product. There are some strange aspects, like wintergreen? But just assume there’s interesting complexity. My tongue is pleased.

hopscotch (9493) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bottle… Clear golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Excellent, wispy retention. Spicy, herbal hops along with notes of black tea, toffee and brown sugar add up to a very appealing nose. Full-bodied and chewy with prickly carbonation. Medium to heavy bitterness is the backbone for the toffee and biscuit malt undertones. Bitterness with a purpose. Moderate tartness. Lengthy, bitter, mildly acidic finish.
