3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber I picked up on an East Coast trip. This beer pours a huge beige head that oh so slowly fades leaving sticky lacing. Bread and biscuit notes. Plenty of malts. Hops bring some spice and floral notes. A very different beer and not an over powering one at all. Call it subtle. The first rater mentioned root beer and I also get that. The spiciness is almost rye. This is an odd duck.

Bottle at home. Deep brown pour with slight reddish hue, attractive beige one finger head. Nose is hops and berry. Tastes of pine (sorta artificial piney), resin, perfume, Hawaiian punch, and root beer. Very dry and touch thin.
