bhensonb (12449) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bomber from Guerde! Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy/foamy beige head. Aromas of citrus, pine and roast malt. Med+ body. Flavor is very citrusy hoppy with some heavy roasted malt. It’s bitter. It’s good. Finishes a bit harsh - guessing from the roast malt. Could be the hop tho - there’s a lot of hop.
