Pours a cloudy golden brown from the bottle with minimal head or lace. Aroma and taste of big oxidized sweet malt. Old and shitty. I know this was not meant to be cellared, but its my only opinion of it and its not good.

sloth (2885) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Large tan head with good retention and fair lacing. Murky, orange, amber colored brew. nose of lightly sweet malts and some earthy, minty notes. Body is med/full with a soft carbonation, bit of resin. Fairly sweet malts with little to know discernable hop flavors. May be old hop flavors or for whatever reason musty hop flavors. Finish is sweet, caramel and somewhat astringent. Cant finish this. Bomber from TBS. Thanks dude! Erf.

rajendra82 (1076) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2012
The orange-amber colored, clear body, and the three finger thick, foamy head, made a respectable presentation. The smell was indeed a hop riot, with an earthy, spicy, citric, and floral hop bouquet. The taste, on the other had, was a touch too astringent. It was a very strong, tea like, herbal bitterness that lingered with each sip. The finish was gingery and prickly. A little harsh on the palette, but not too hard to drink overall.

Cybercat (5670) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2012
Aroma is very strong and VERY hoppy, with an undertone of grapefruit. It pours a dark coppery brown, almost mahogany, with a thick pale tan head. Seriously hoppy flavor has strong evergreen and grass notes, a little bitterness, and hints of grapefruit and lemon plus a whisper of caramel. Smooth texture has average body but a good amount of fizz and hoppy bitter bite. A "hop riot" indeed!

SpringsLicker (3606) - Tennessee, USA - APR 12, 2012
Pours a deep copper with a large off-white ehad. Earthy piney hop aroma. The flavor is a light, yet firm bitterness that has a nicely subtle malt sweetness underneath. Nice dry finish.

JoePeesie (925) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2012
Pours a murky brown with off whit head. Nose is very bready & malty. Taste is a punch of floral earthy hops and a solid dry bready malt finish. Decent but I've had better from Jail House. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Pours a clear copper color with a medium size off-white head. Aroma of light citrus hop and sweet malts. Flavor of sweet malts and ton of pine and floral hops. The bitterness from the hops was surprising due to the lack of a hoppy aroma.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Aroma of slight pine, heavy malts, and some skunk. Pours red with a big sticky head. Taste is ok with some caramel, pine and slight yeast. Not that good.

Bomber. Nice bubble g and citrus sort of aroma. Sadly that does not come through to the flavor. The flavor is a little more towards the rubbing alcohol kind of hop profile. Good body though and a nice sweetness. Finish is a sticky pine.
