Bomber courtesy of douglas88 pouring clear copper with tan head. The aroma has muted spicy to earthy hoppy notes followed quickly by various malts. The taste has plenty of floral and spicy hops to go around as it rolls into earthy hops, malt sweetness, some biscuit malt qualities and then sweet caramel malts too.

Bottle (Release #2): Pours a copper color with a nice white head and nice lacing. The nose is sappy with some pine and light sawdust notes; ample caramel and toasty cinnamon malt notes. Seems very nicely balanced, very full and biscuity with perfume and light toasty hop notes. The flavor is much more malt focused but the present hops are earthy and present. Interesting wet hop beer. This tells me that wet hop beers suck, because the only thing I like about this beer is the toasty maris otter. BuckeyeBoy (8205) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 7, 2010
22oz Bottle thanks to inflatablehair. Pours out a cloudy copper topped with a small white head. Aroma was of sweet caramel, hop notes, and bread. Taste just the same as the aroma but with a some melon.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is caramel, some hops, and some biscuity quality. Flavor is similar with a medium body and hops all over. Interesting. Sledutah (7763) - Utah, USA - OCT 2, 2010

Appearance: Pours slightly hazy amber with a nice off-white head and lots of lacing left in the glass
Aroma: Biscuit and caramel
Taste: Biscuity, caramel, some spices and hops in the finish
Nice beer, clean and refreshing.
22 ounce bottle from the brewery. Pours a cloudy copper color with a small white head. A sweet musty caramel malt and light hops. The flavor is smooth and calm; caramel, light bitter hops, fruit, easygoing. More of a English Pale Ale. A nice Autumn beer.
