Light amber, not quite golden with a thick white head. Aroma is some citrus hops. Flavor is big fresh hops, a little citrus. There’s a burst of rye that comes in after the hops. Nice and cutting, especially with especially salty or spicy food. Finish is maybe a tiny bit sweet but otherwise it’s a pretty excellent beer.

Shared with kristen and kevin on his birthday. Clearish amber copper with ring of tan head. Smells and tastes of pelletized fuggles hops. Very earthy green with a lingering hop citrus taste. We really liked this.

Bomber from Total Wine in McLean, VA (not the nearby towns of McRib or McNugget or Quarter Pounder). Somewhat hazy orange-amber color with a nice lacy and lasting whitish head. Spicy rye aroma with citrus/orange peel and herbal notes. The flavor has somewhat of a sweet malt base, caramel, tea, herbs, rye bread, and spice. Fairly full-bodied and a bit on the syrupy side but overall extremely solid.

Pours opaque orange with a large off-white head. Smells spicy with a solid fruity and citrusy aroma. Taste is good, has bitterness and a touch of spice, but not outstanding. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Hoppin’ Frog Hopped-up Goose Juice Rye IPA finishes with a tiny lingering bitterness.

Bomber thanks to Santa, pours a clear bright copper with a large white head. Aroma of very fruity oranges, rye spice, soapy, hops, and tropical fruits. Taste has tons of fruits like Hawaiian punch, pineapple, oranges, rye spice, and hop bitterness. Delicious!
