UPDATED: MAY 16, 2007 Rating #1 Bottle (6 3 5 2 12). A brown-orange color with a foamy off-white head. A toasted malty sweet bread flavor. Wood, medicinal, and pine flavors that challenge but don’t quite create enough joy. Rating #2 Bottle (6 3 7 3 16). A light malt and spice aroma that was very understated (almost like tea). The flavor comes through well despite the missing aroma. A slightly sweet malty and caramel base with with a little bite. A smooth finish with a pleasant malty aftertaste. mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2006
Bottle. Brown-copper with a small white head. Citrusy grapefruit aroma, sweet resin, creamy bread malt and some lemon. Sugary malt flavour and the hops are certainly in full force as well as a whack of alcohol. Caramel flavour is also apparent. Overall quite big and drinkable but best kept to small doses. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2007
The pour reveals a clear copper color with a thin offwhite head. Good aroma of woody, resinous hops with something sweet. The flavor has an interesting combo of sweet and bitter with its woody, resinous hops and caramel sweetness. The body is light to medium with a chewy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. I like that the alcohol is not present in the flavor. Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 24, 2007
Bottle. Amber colour with a white head. Floral hop, pine, lemon aroma and taste, sweet. Medium body with a sweet hoppy finish. Bartzilla (623) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bomber from Pacific Liquor. Pretty tasty, though nothing really unique or stellar. Reminded me of an Arrogant Bastard, just not as fresh. The alcohol is well tucked away with a noticeable malt profile that finishes with a clean hop burst. Pretty standard fare, but not bad at all.

Pors medium amber with a good lingering foam head, Smell s ok, kind musty. Taste is not that of a strong ale. solid brew overall, just no compaired to other strong ales. stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours copper with a decent size off-white head. Aroma of Caramel malts, fruit, piney hops, and citrus. The flavor is sweet, caramel, fruit, with a citrusy bitter finish. Good brew. smhncabot (310) - Cabot, Arkansas, USA - JUL 8, 2007
pours clear copper with small head that diminishes. aroma is very fruity with a good amount of grapefruit and a good amount of crystal malt sweetness. taste is very hoppy with some tropical fruit and grapefruit. this beer has a lot of crystal sweetness and pretty bitter finish.

Thanks to skyview for sharing. Nice copper colored body with faint foamy off-white head. Light almost citrus hop nose. Sweet malt body with a bitter hop finish. xmarcnolanx (940) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Pours copper with a small head. Aroma is of fruity hops and sweet malt. Taste is all hops with a lot of sweetness to it. It is a little strange, but has a nice bitter finish. Overall, not the best effort.
