Bomber purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar ($9.49). Pours a slightly hazy red-amber hue with a finger and a half of white foam. Aroma of various fruits (both tropical and citrus) with some pine and resiny hops and lesser notes of caramel. Flavor of pine, grapefruit, and spicy hops, but with an unfortunate harsh alcohol burn. Heavy syrupy mouthfeel with some lingering hop bitterness and alcohol burn. Really, theres wheat in here?? Cause Im not finding it at all. A bit of wheat subtlety might be nice here. The hops are certainly big and brash but could be much more nuanced (take a hint from the west coast brewers who do big hops but make it interesting). However, its the big boozy alcohol that most causes this to fall to mediocre. (71, 810)

These guys and clown shoes are making some damn good affordable beers. This one had a little of everything. Solid hops nicely balanced with roasted malts. Winner winner

ABUSEDGOAT (2630) - California, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Cloudy orange color, some lace/retention. Aroma is pine, caramel, quite fruity - grapefruit. I dont get the wheat reference. Medium to full bodied, moderate to high bitterness, some alcohol in finish.

Nothing but alcohol in both aroma and taste. Cloudy light amber color. Dont confuse this with Clown Shoes which is brewed at the same contract brewer.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, poorly retained off white head, with slight lacing, over a moderately hazy (after really twirling the bottle) light amber (SRM 10) body.....nose is heavy grapefruit peel, resin.......taste is sweet with pine resin, heavy grapefruit, hints of spice, finishing with a moderate citrus bitterness.......mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, high alcohol burn present, carbonation adds both acid and a pleasant tingle. The hop backbone is dominant in this beer ( possibly Simcoe, Citra or a combination of Galaxy and other Anzac hop creations), and with the very strong citrus and lighter pine bitterness, creates an unbalanced beer. A change in the hop bill would make for a better balance in the hop backbone, increase complexity. The malts do not give enough complexity or mouth feel to stand up to the alcohol. This is almost a high gravity beer ( think Industrial Brews) with added hops. BJCP 6/3/12/4/5
