This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

Poured from a 1 pint 6 oz bottle. Appearance - Murky, murky dark brown body. Smell - Toasted maltiness with ample dark fruity alcohol. Taste - hops and more hops. Very complex. Medium body. A very aggressive beer with big flavors.

Poured from a 20 oz bottle. Dark amber color with lots of head. The active carbonation provides consistent head and a flurry of bubbles that dance their way up to the top. The first sip brings flavors of malt and a certain bite that lasts. Has a fairly bitter finish, which I was not expecting.

Poured from 1 pint 6 fl oz bottle. Clear, copper brown with beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, slightly nutty. Taste of resinous hops, quite bitter finish. Medium plus body. Good mouthfeel, but a little overwhelmed with the resinous-ness.

22oz from the COOP, but all the bottleshops and even grocery stores carry it now. Huge 2" tan head that came out of the glass and left behind beautiful lacing. The brew looks walnut brown until held to a light revealing deep cherry red... pretty for sure. Aroma is a good balance between American hops and caramel and toasted malts... some fruitiness.. more refined than I remember. Full flavored obviously.. citrus and pine hops shine but are shadowed perfectly buy the big malt flavors... pretty brutal bitterness. Leans toward the sweet side with caramel and toasty malts... a touch of milk chocolate is highlted by the sorta creamy mouthfeel. Big and brash across the board.. AB leaves nothing to guess... it is Big. It is a beer I unfortunately always overlook/take for granted... I really should buy it more often.

Nice amber pour with a hoppy citrus aroma. The hoppy taste lingers a bit on the palate. Overall nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Strong pine resiny hop aroma with a little bit of citrus. Pours dark copper colored with a large tan head with excellent retention and lacing. Amber malt flavors to start with a bit of citrus. Finishes extremely dry with ridiculously strong pine resiny hops with a sharp bitter hop bite at end that lingers on the palate. Ludicrously hoppy and bitter, but quite wonderful.
