3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Deep reddish copper pour with a thin white frothy head. Floral hop aroma with a sweet maltiness backbone. Bitterness prevails in the mouth, and it lingers and lingers. Not sure if I have ever had this much German hops in a beer. Upon further sips, you can note the smoothness up front, but then the hops hit hard. You all should try this.

22oz bottle. liquid crystal orange under a very small, white head. aroma is loudly subtle. i’m having trouble identifying anything. dry beer palate. hoppy, bitter flavors. some graininess to round edges. male ladybug hells angels native americans!...i always wondered how these two styles would go together. an ipa-like dose of hops, lots of lager malts and lager yeast with a good bit of booze... and some fried ice cream with freezer burn. i need some friends.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Strawberry copper hue with very thin lacing. Round mouth feel and immediate citrus bitter American-style hoppy punch. Smoothes over with a bright Kolsch light maltiness and then transforms into a sweet light caramel malted finish. The hops still stick around in the finish along with the caramel notes. Very interesting beer. Good work boys.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber picked up from Tower in Buckhead. Poured a clearish amber with a decent white head, faded quickly but left a collar of white foam around the glass. Aroma was super grassy, lots of earthy hops and a bit of caramel malt. This stuff actually smells like it came straight out of the ground, big earthiness all around. Flavors were super clean and crisp. Earthy hops dominate from the get go, fade to a light malty sweetness and end with a big lingering bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel was actually somewhat creamy, medium bodied with lively carbonation. A good yet interesting brew, very drinkable.
