Bottle. Pine/orange peel and toffee malt aroma. Dark brown color with giant tan head. Bitter pine/orange peel and light toffee malt flavor - hops dominate. Okay. BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bomber from Surdyk’s. Very dark pour with a huge fluffy head with great retention. Citrus hops - and an aroma that reminds me of a lot of Jolly Pumpkin stuff. Crisp but balanced. Good beer.

Bottle… Pours clear and very dark with a burnt orange hue (when held up to bright light) and a large, fluffy, off-white head. Fantastic retention with cool, weeping lacework left behind. The nose is of caramel and earthy, leathery hops. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is a touch chocolaty, caramely and nutty; however, the tasty, bitter hops blow everything else out of the water. Lengthy, roasted, blazingly bitter finish. A big THANKS goes out to ygtbsm94 for shipping this bottle to me! alexsdad06 (11222) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2016
22 oz bottle from notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, chocolate, earthy bitterness, citrus and resiny hops, moderate bitterness, good. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2009
Draft at Craft. Pours ruby, not black, with 1-finger of off-white head. Nose is heavy piney hops, dark malt, brown sugar, tropical fruit. Tastes malty, with rich resiny hops. earthy, a bit of pineapple, but the hops overtake the malt late. Solid. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Vert dark brown pour. Tons of resin on the aroma and some grapefruit peel. Flavor is very resinous and bitter. Light malt bill. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2009
