COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Need some fermented anger management? Burning Bridges, a hoppy American Brown Ale, hits your tastebuds with generous portions of Horizon, Falconer’s Flight 7C’s, and Cascade hops.Amber and chocolate malt provide the moral fortitude to balance these angry hops. However, when you inevitability do burn bridges, at least you still have this beer to help ease the consequences.

Bomber poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark brown with a ruby hue and 2 fingers of thick tan head. Aroma of roasty caramel with a nice citrus wallop. Taste is medium bitter with citrus and grapefruit and hints of coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Very lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, very good. Another homerun from spiteful.

Poura a dark brown with a small head. Nose is sweet and hoppy, more like an IPA. Taste is hoppy and bitter, again more like a black IPA. Finish is sweet and bitter with moderate lingering. Not your typical brown ale , but good ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours dark brown with a tan head and aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and hops. Taste is of chocolate and roasted malt, with nice hoppy, citrusy, fruity notes that come through leading to a slight bitter finish. Nice, hoppy brown ale

22 oz. bottle shared by beerpig317. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma had a nice malt backbone, earthy hops, chocolate and a hint of nuts. The flavor had roasted malts, chocolate, earthy hops with a mild herbal note. Pretty decent brown ale.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2013
22oz bottle, batch #17. Shared by beerpig317. Brown color. Thin light khaki head. Little lace. Nice earthy herbal hop note to this. Definitely more hoppy than your standard brown. Hint of spice (bit of cinnamon). Light hint of chocolate. Bigger body. Some smooth, soft carbonation. More dry in the finish. Moderate bitter, some light spice, lighter sweet taste. Good, hoppy, bigger brown ale.

Bomber to snifter (thanks Beerpig317). Looks good; a dark brown with light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt and hops with notes of roast and nuttiness. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

HonkeyBra (3247) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle. This pours a dark brown with a big tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, brown sugar, brown cookie malts. Strong citrus hop presence. Flavor is solidly bitter, with otherwise strong malt backing. Flavor is strong citrus hops, oatmeal cookies, brown malt, some coffee. Some chocolate and some mild coffee as well. Medium bodied. Nice, full carbonation. Finishes somewhat hoppy. This is great.
