Copperish orange,slight haze,short head,scattered froth/lace. Aroma has some malt and some subtle piney herbal hops, slightly spicey. Smooth malty toasty-roasty like, with mild sweet, pretty hoppy piney herbal strong bitter. Good ipa. Taste like alot of columbus to me but apparantly its centennial/cascades only. Good price for a bomber and good ipa. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bomber pours a bright clear reddish copper with good sudsy tan head. Aroma is a great ’red’ foresty hop profile. Flavor is agressively hopped as well. Caramel tries to add balance, but it leans heavily to the citrusy/piney//orange zesty hops. Really didn’t care for it that much. Very cool idea for a beer, but execution? not so much. jbruner (4740) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle shared thanks to stevencon! Pours a clear golden brown with thin wispy head that leaves light lacing. Aroma is woody grain with a slight hop. Taste is bready grain, hops are all gone. Meh, not past it’s drink by date yet according to the bottle, but tastes like it. scoth (685) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Pours clear copper with a thin quickly diminishing beige head, very fine clinging lacing. Aromas of pine resin, grass, caramel, citrus, and biscuit. Medium body, dry, velvety, medium carbonation. Mild sweetness, fairly strong bitterness with enjoyable lingering grapefruit and pine notes. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bomber. Poured clear, bright golden with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up nutty and sweet caramel hops topped by grassy notes and a little citrus.. very much on the malty side. The flavor found dry orange zest laced throughout.. sweet biscuity malts supported.. finished with a lot of sugars lightly cut by tangy orange zest. Medium-bodied with high-ish carbonation on the palate.. this just didn’t come together very well.

bottle. Golden with two finger head. Seemed at first to be a pretty standard (but above average) IPA. As it warmed, I caught more of the woodiness, which while subtle, adds some depth. The spicing improved as it warmed a bit too. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2013
22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear copper body that has thin gold edges and supports a nice looking semi fluffy light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a mix of sweet malts, some spicy wood and a bit of citrus hops. The taste begins with spicy wood blending into some pine and citrus hops that swirl around a thin stream of sweet maltiness. This has a pleasing degree of assertive hoppiness where there’s plenty of balance and depth with firm hop bitterness and mild malt sweetened hop flavor. Nice. This is right at the top for me in this Homefront series. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Tap. Deep amber pour with a cream head. Nose is light citrus, fresh hops, earth, and florals. Easy palate, not overly hopped, bitter, chewy, fruity finish. drsordr (2659) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle pours copper color. Nose dank hop and resin. Taste bitter bite up front resin, strong mid palate bitter. Not getting much from the added spices, or the wood for that matter. Wonder if they left any of the pine tar on the bats while aging the beer? They should have. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 24, 2013
