On draft at the Blue Dog. A cloudy yellow/amber pour with thin white head. Nose full of hops. Flavor boasted plenty of bitter and citrus hops. The sweet malts attempted to balance out those hops but without too much success! You have to like hops to enjoy this one, and I did enjoy it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Earthly and pine aroma along with some rubbing alcohol. Burning orange body with mustard colored head. Flavor had some good juicy citrus at first. Then the alcohol took over beer and barley grain noticable. Hoppy dry palate, just odd with that dryness usually comes a hard bittering but for this one the bitterness was rather medium. Decent beer lot going ion here.

Bottle Pours a clear amber with a good off white head. The head is foamy and deminishing. Laces fairly well. Has a good hoppy aroma of spruce, citrus, bread, and bubblegum. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is hoppy but not super bitter. A smooth hoppiness. Has a watery texture. A medium body. A good finish with a good aftertaste. This is a pretty good beer, tasty but I like a little more bitterness.
