Aroma - caramel, roasted barley. Crystal clear dark brown, med head that lasts. salty bitterness smoothed out by a little sweetness. light body, lively carbonation and a slightly astringent in the finish. I tend to like more bitter and less sweet beers but this one I really enjoyed.

Bomber pours a dark reddish-brown with a clumpy cap of beige head that rings the glass. Interesting aroma of spicy and earthy hops on a thick bed of malts and lots of caramely sugar. Flavor is an overwhelming blast of sugary sweetness that fades into hearty malts and hop spice. Creamy texture slides into a dry finish with a bit of alcohol bite.

22oz bottle from BevMo. Deep mohogany pour with a small wispy beige head. Light hops and toasted malts on the nose. A fairly uninteresting brew, though very drinkable.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2010
Pours a nice medium brown color. Aroma of molasses, grass and floral hops. Flavor is sweet caramel and candied brown sugar, but nicely balanced with bitter floral hops - and the trademark Lagunitas grapefruit taste is still lingering behind everything. Finish is bitter hops with a nice lasting and dry floral aftertaste. Nicely balanced.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 8, 2010
Bottle pours a deep chestnut with a medium creamy/bubbly off white head. Aroma of nuts, toasted malt, citrus hops, caramel and floral notes. Flavor of nuts, toasted malt, toffee, hints of chocolate, medium hop bitterness and flavor. Reminds me a little of Arrogant Bastard.

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2010
Pretty chestnut pour with a decent sized head. Hearty spice and malt are noticed with ginger and clove albeit subtly with a wonderful blend of a robust malt presence and quieting pined bittering touches. Easy drinking and great at around twilight/dusk. Heartily enjoyed

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2010
brown pour with a thick off white head. aroma is very sweet malt, nuts and caramel. light woody and citrus hop. flavour is caramel sweet malt, some black tea tones, balancing citrus hopiness in the finish leaves a bit of a confusing aftertaste.

Dogbrick (11610) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2010
UPDATED: APR 8, 2010 Thanks to JaBier for sharing a bottle. The beer is a chestnut color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Grassy hops aroma with notes of malt and citrus. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops presence and flavors of citrus, pale malt and caramel. The finish is toasted malt and hops with a lingering bitterness left behind. Above average overall.

Bottle. Pour was medium copper with a light head. Aroma was of bread, herbal hops, light caramel, and citrus. Flavors were well balanced with a strong, up front bitterness that mellowed quickly into the light caramel and malty body. Nice, light carbonation and a nice job for the brew.
