Small off-white head atop clear dark amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, caramel, some pine, light cherry. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit/pine, caramel, light cherry. Medium body, some resin, light acidity. Quite hoppy, which really isn’t a characteristic of a winter warmer. Tasty though.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours rather hazy blood orange with a large beige head. Strong aromas of fruit and resin. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is lots of grapefruit rind and resin over a lot of light roast malt. This is a mouth grabber. Excellent IPA.

3fourths (7858) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2012
bottle. lightly hazed dark amber body. thick, patchy dough-colored head. juicy sweet maraschino cherry red malt and juicy / resinous american hop nose. lightly toasty, hugely sweet, highly bitter, medium-full body, lasting hop acids and a pleasant doughy mushiness late. admittedly enjoyable to drink, the texture is quite nice, though I don’t care for the sweet red apple and maraschino cherry flavor so much. I find myself liking it about as much as their Crystal Bitter, which had more caramel malt than I usually like, but a nice roundness and fullness of texture to make it enjoyable. this one just seems a little too brutish and a little too sweet up front.
