Bomber from BevMo. Pours a dark ruddy copper with a clingy 3 finger foamy off-white head. Nice citrus aroma. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. Thereís a malt backbone, but the hop is on top of it. Finishes bitter around the back tongue edges. Not over the top intensity, but quite tasty in a hoppy malty way. Kind of astringent. These IBUs donít quit.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 14, 2010
22oz bottle. Cleaqr brown with a soapy off-white head. Lots of dank, weedy hops in the aroma wit some tropical touched going on as well. There is a touch of crystal malt as well, but mostly very fresh hops. The flavor is also very hop forward wit a touch of caramel and toasty malt sweetness. Lots of fruity, dank, piney hop flavor with a medium-high bitterness that leads to a long and slightly bitter finish. Grapefruit is strong in this one, with a slightly bitter peely touch. Medium bodied with medium bubbles. Gets a touch sweeter while it warms, but not too sweet overall. A nice hop forward beer with an underlying malt presence.,

Brown to almost ruby. Pepper aroma. A bit of dark fruit and a very light sweetness, really more dry. Great depth of flavor and unique style. Good beer.

Sampled on 3/12/2010. This American Strong Ale pours a dark brown ruby amber color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is malty, nutty and hoppy. A medium bodied imperial brown/American Strong Ale. The malts are chocolate, caramel and a little nutty. The hops are grapefruity and floral. Nice carbonation. Somewhere between a brown ale and a hoppy ASA. Nice clean hoppy finish. Really hoppy without being all that bitter. Gets a little sweeter as it warms. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and citrusy.

Aurelius (4236) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Cat urine, piney, west coast hops aroma. Medium brown, very clear, bone colored head. Mishmash beer. Sweet, brown-y, odd. Light fruit, some spice. Not bad, just strange. Tap, Flying Saucer, KC.

Bottle. Gomers in Lees Summit had this. Must be a new offering because hardly any ratings. This isnít bad, but other Laguntias beers are better. This one was good but not great. Lagunitas is always worth the money. Aroma was mild hops, caramel, and some floral. Poured a darker amber color, with a nice two finger white head. Some lacing left on the side of the glass. A great beer.

Suprised to see this on display at my local BevMo. I hadnít heard anything about it, so for $4.00 a 22oz bomber...it was an easy decision. The beer pours out a beautiful burgundy red body with rootbeer brown edges, clear and a light tan with a steady 1/2" thick head. Aroma starts out with a clean pine hot bite. Very nice hop attack and blended with a raspberry jam/fruity nose. A bit of alcohol also pops up late. Flavor is suble chocolate notes, piney hops, a touch herbal with a nice dry finish. No alcohol bite to the beer that I could find. After finishing the bottle, I just kept thinking that the aroma reminded me of walking into a brewers walk-in cooler and the smell of hops attacking the senses. Nothing overwhelming, just nice.

Interesting cross between a brown/Scotch ale and an IPA. Caramel, peat, and resiny hops are the main elements, and the body is adequate for easy drinking purposes. The finish is of moderate duration, and quite pleasant. Overall, this could have been a bit more intense, but itís another nice Lagunitas effort.
