Pours a very nice caramel brown with burnt white head. Very floral and citrusy aroma. Taste is immediately floral and citrusy, and the velvety mouth feel is fantastic. Very nice

Salmoniform (1179) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 21, 2014
2014 poured from tallboy to glass. Deep copper hue with creMy off white head that lingered. Aroma is caramel, grapefruit, bread, tangerine, grassy. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet initially followed by a great hop bitterness. Overall this is a really nice brew.

"This beer achieves a nice balance between dark malts, lighter malts, and spicy and citrus hops, but was still pretty bland, and therefore ultimately forgettable. Maybe I’m the anomoly...95 on RB when had/97 now."

Bomber. Such a nice drinking beer for the winter. Love the hop forward taste and interesting aroma. The higher carb scores points with me as well.

TheHOFF43 (1760) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Wasn’t sure on the style here, guessed IPA, I was wrong. Hoppy, lots of citrus hops, floral and great. I get very little malt from this, really enjoyed it though.

thegreenrooster (3395) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pour is a hazy brown with a average white head. Aroma is oily hops and sweet caramel malts. Flavor is a decent dark malt with some resin hops. Finish is toffee caramel malts with pine and a bit of mint. Decent winter warmer but I was expecting something even hoppier then I got. It’s still a hoppy ale with lots of malt backbone
