Malty strong ale that is not overpowering. Really nice hoppy aroma (simcoe?). Brown ale? Didnít get that.

Very malty, but bitey. Strongly carbonated. This one i could drink all day. Lots of caramel balanced with a great hopiness. A great marriage of an IPA and a brown. Delicious and drinkable.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2010
A reddish-brown beer with a small head. The aroma is very citrusy and piney. I like how it does not look like it would smell the way it does, nice hoppy aroma. The taste is a nice citrusy hop taste with some pine with a moderate bitterness.

22 oz. bottle from Macís on West Peachtree. Fluffy head is starting to break-away. Nice translucent brown body. This fucker is reminding me of Arrogant Bastard i.e. this is a great looking beer. Nice pungent and resinous grapefruit/citrus hop aroma. Sharp pine aroma cuts through the citrus; damn, this thing fresh, smell amazing. Itís as if I am opening a pouch of hops purchased for home-brewing purposes. The hops dominate, without much of a malt presence. I am dissatisfied with the aroma whatsoever. Excellent flavor. I thought the hop presence was going to be overpowering, but it is actually quite mellow. Youíre still able to taste the resinous pine and grapefruit citrus hop flavors, but it is also balanced out by a rather subtle sweet malt flavor, that doesnít get in the way. In fact, I am not tasting much of anything other than the hop flavor. I do get some residual sweet flavors from the malts, but again, this beer is centered on the hops.

BuckeyeBoy (5498) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 25, 2010
On tap at Brewforia Boise. Pours out a amberish topped with a nice head. Aroma was of pine resin and caramell sweetness. Taste was a nice pine needle and lots of caramell malts to help round it out. This was a tasty one. How

GT (9933) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 25, 2010
22oz. Pours a clear amber, thick yellowish beige head. Very good lace. Very nice aroma of fresh hops (tropical notes), brown sugar, spices, rye malt, tamarind. Taste is like a spicy brown IPA. Some sweaty character, resiny hops, strawberry icing. Very weird but fun!

I was sitting in this bar, and the owner came up to me and told me to get out because they wanted to start happy hour...Pours a light rust brown .. medium head, but great lacing .. good dose of hops, resiny bark, burnt caramel, pinecone drippings .. . an enjoyable and at the price, a great buy- but a tad one dimensional ... why you hit him? hey, no one hit, he just fell down ..

Bomber courtesy of mitchgt - from New Leaf. Dark cola colored pour with a ruby tint. Medium sturdy light tan head. Nice citrus hop, floral and molasses in the aroma - an earthy vibe. Taste is earthy also with toasted malts, pine, caramel and peppery spice. Finishes up a subtle burnt citrusy bitter with a spike of carbonation. Nice texture overall - creamy medium with sharp carbonation. Interesting stuff.
