Bomber served in a tulip. Beautiful dense cola pour topped by a large frothy light brown head. Great retention and lacing. Piney and floral hop aroma along with some chocolate malt. Roasty bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, good carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a charred, bitter finish with sticky resin that lasts.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this beer. The beer pours a dark brownish-red color with a white head. The aroma is strong resiny hops with some roasted malt. The flavor is resiny hops with just the lightest amount of roasted malt. Still, this beer is all about the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22 oz. bomber courtesy of a trade with DA. Pours very dark brown, just about black, with a moderate tan head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of fruity grapefruit along with some very mild malt. The flavor is most definitely tilted towards the hops with strong pine and grapefruit bitterness. Given the darkness of the beer, I thought there would be more of a roasted malt backbone, but the malt is very subdued. Moderate-strong bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. One for the hopheads.

mcberko (6273) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2011
22 oz. bottle, pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, citrus & herbal hops and a sort of stale funk. Flavour of a balance of roasted malt and herbal / citrus hops. Quite nice.

douglas88 (5903) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Bomber thanks to Mike. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head and lots of lacing. A fruity pine hop nose, quite rich. The flavor is a light roast, caramel, rich cascade and some syrupy amarillo, light bitterness. Tasty but missing a real heft. This is dominated by PNW hops, perhaps a heavier roast would be nice. Still, quite nice.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2011
Single bottle purchased from Co-op Liqour Store in Calgary, AB on 05/25/2011. Colour: Extremely dark red with hints of brown and low white head. Nose: Maple laced coffee, chai spice, yeast. Hops are abundant and full of fresh zest. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Tea leaves, and lots of them. Earl Grey? Some buttered toast pops its head in to say hi. Touch of soap. Hops are consistent. End trails off characterwise and leaves solid bitterness.

22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks, Jason! Pours a dark copper-brown with a big, foamy tan head. Aroma of citrusy hops, toasted malts, powdery chocolate, and dust. Flavor of citrusy hops, grapefruit, roasted malts, wood, chocolate, and coffee. Light-medium bodied, with a citrusy, bitter, toasty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really nice take on the style, and I’ve been impressed with everything from HUB I’ve tried so far.

Bottle at Alex. Dark brown coloured with a medium sized beige head. Fruity aroma of hops, pine needles, grass and hops. Fruity flavour of hops and pine needles with notes of grass and grape fruits. Dry hoppy finish.
