3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I liked this a little more than most. It has a citrus aroma from an amber pour with a dense foamy head. The flavor is bitter hops with a hint of malt. The finish is dry and crisp.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Many thanks to Stefan SD for this 650 ml bottle.
Golden in the glass, slightly sweet and very intense hoppy in the nose. The beer starts much more bitter than expected. Only slightly sweet in the background. The intense bitter note lies over all - also nearly no floral hop aroma, as the nose predicts. The aftertaste is long, intense-bitter, smooth.
Probably not the freshest bottle, as I miss any of the floral hop aroma. But not bad at all - a decent very bitter brew! --> 12/10/12/11

Bomber from the Gold Coast in Vegas. Bottled at 7.2%. Decent IPA. Fair amount of hoppiness, but a very average brew all in all.

Spooky rattler on the label. Pours an orange/yellow color. Fluffy head on this one. Spicy and floral aroma. Bitterness is medium to me and it sticks around on the roof of the mouth. Little bite at the beginning of each sip. A little caramel taste around too.

22 ounce bottle shared with Ed at the Bayou. Citrus, grassy, with some caramel. The flavor is dominated by grassy hops. Lots of caramel. Brighter hop flavors, less grassy notes, better balance.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Part of the first German beer tasting in Idar-Oberstein. Thanks to Travlr. One of the things I like about these events is that I get to try beers that you would never try other wise. Sometimes for the better sometimes not. Pours an amber color with a full large off white head. Aroma is pine oil. Taste is bitter hops that is a mess. Palate is dry bitter pine. I had to eat a wild boar sausage in a roll just to get this taste out of my mouth. Blah! This stuff should be used to clean floors and is not fit for humans. We did have fun wacthing the local Germans faces as they tried this with us. Travlr got some great pictures of this.
