Deep golden color with very little head from this bottle. Sweet aroma. Carmel malt flavor very little hop flavor or aroma. Yeast leaves a sweet aftertaste. Thinker

Bomber. Cool bottle, lame beer. Has a funky taste, is it butter or vanilla? Just can't figure this one out. Unbalanced and mostly a hot mess. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Bottle. Hop, toast, and honey aroma. Taste is a little bitter, kinda watery, long pine finish. This is a great example of thinking a beer will be awesome cause the label and being disappointed.

RobertDale (3290) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bomber. Pours gold with a nice off-white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, and yeast. Taste is grapefruit, caramel malt, yeast, and grass. Missed the mark.

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Sampled at an esbls. Interesting gunny sack bottle cover. Clear golden and a little like a champagne appearance. Very soft aroma has fruit and yeast. Flavorvis more robust and active in the mouth. Pale malts with caramel, noble hops with grapefruit citrus. This grows in bitterness. I like it much more than I expected to.

krumbum (500) - truckee, California, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Clear golden beer. Woody hop earthy smell. Nice hop bitter bite that slowly fades. The earthyness sticks around a bit extra.

Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Light grapefruti aroma. Grapefruit and summer fruti flavor. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and summer fruit lingers with light caramel.

Saodwyer (10) - Elk Grove, California, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Bomber from Nugget. Pours a light copper, no lacing. Aroma is weak flora, citrus. Taste is musty, earthy. A different tasting beer, light. I want to like it, but won't buy it again.

thetmaxx (732) - West Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
I looked all over today for a wet hop, guy at Davis beer shop said I was premature, but my wife found this for me! Aroma is earthy and spicy. Interesting hop combination. But I love it given Sacramentos rich hop growing history! Flavor isn’t very bitter, but the palate is real oily. Flavour is real earthy, mushroom, wood, grassy. Decent, and different that the more popular hop Usage. Very clear red orange, thin head, minimal lacing.

barn0216 (385) - California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Deep golden, clear, two finger pour. Grain, herbal, medicinal smell. Peculiar flavor. Dry, astringent alcohol flavor, like medicine. Pretty unpleasant.
