4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz Bomber: Aroma is full of pine and some citrus. This beer pours a reddish mahogany color; very impressive looking. Hops is the predominant flavor, with some light malt in the background that balances it out slightly. The warmth of alcohol is present on the back of the palate and in the aftertaste. This beer has a nice mouth feel; hoppy, but not chewy. Overall an excellent beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Singularly caramel colored, thick, rich head with some of the longest lasting lacings I’ve seen outside of Imperial Stouts. Color is representative of the head, as it’s got a gloriously hazy burnt caramel tone that stymies the eye beyond a few millimeters. A warm aroma that wakens to the toasty, yeasty, spicy hidden citruses of the hop. Sour sip that opens on the palate to a heady flavor of crusty breads and fancy British toffees that backended by a very nice piney hop that is entirely unexpected. Quality ASA, drink it soon!

Shoprite Hoboken NJ. Bottled. Very nice nose. Pine mixed with cherries and chocolate. Nice head. Very hoppy, although the malts bring out enough sweetness to balanced and contrast the bitterness. Taste is same as the nose just a tad bit sweeter than i would have thought from the aroma. Good Beer!

Like a mellowed-out Arrogant Bastard. A good beer, but in my opinion, not worth the price.
