Reddish-amber. Not much head the way I poured it. Vibrant, biscuity, toasty amber malts and bright (if subtle) tropical fruit hops. Bland palate but with some spicy hoppiness. Good balance.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Beverages 4 Less. Fred does it again. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy/foamy 3 finger beige head. Citrus and pine together. How rare for my nose to be able to discern that combo. Near full bodied. Foamy carb. Flavor is mildly harsh roast malt with grapefruit, pine and some treacle notes. Arguably earthy, but maybe that’s the roast malt. Good stuff!
