Bomber shared with kleyland, courtesy of alexanderj. Pours a hazy light gold with lots of floating particulate. Small, white sized head with tons of lacing. This one sticks to your glass until the end. Huge aroma of piney hops. Some grapefruit notes are lurking in the background. Initial mouthfeel is very strong, very thick, big bodied. Hops dominate the body, but the caramel flavors come through as the beer opens up. A hop head’s dream! Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2007
Bottle at "Wining & Dining Tasting" - Thanks to Sune. Cheese aroma & cheese taste - too much cheese, it ruins the beer for me. High hoppy, hop juice, grape, old sour cheese, sharp light unpleasantness. SORRY !!! yespr (45508) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2008 From bottle, blind tasting at Papsoes - beer no 37. Pours hazy orange with a diminished white head. Aroma is sharp grapefruity and with a solid sweet maltbase. Flavour is heavy bitter with a lovely fruity hops and a liqourice sharpness cutting off the brew before the finish. Sharp bitter finish. Great.8-3-8-4-17=4.0buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2007
From tap at the brewery. Pours cloudy and golden orange with a lacing white head. Mild grapefruity and peachy aroma. Smoth and quite inviting. Dense hoppy flavour with a light fruity touch and a mild bitterness. Nicely balanced with a solid caramel malt presence and a light fruity lingering finish.8-4-8-4-16=4.0
Thanks to brock_landers for trading this to me. Pours a dark, slightly hazy copper with a small off white head and sticky lacing. The aroma is wonderful. Big piney hops, ripened fruits, caramel malts. Flavor is a ball buster. Bitter sticky hops, massive pine, rich malts. The mouthfeel is thick, bitter and dryish. Did I mention that it is bitter!!!!!!! This is a real treat. Thanks again. joergen (28177) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2007

Dark copper with small head. Sweet floral and piney hop aroma. Taste is bitter hops, but plenty of backing malt. Definitely more citrus hops in the taste, with some sweetness and alcohol coming through in the end. Just another great hop bomb to add to the mix. Nicely done. sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2007
Wining & Dining Tasting. Pours a slightly hazy amber with an off-white head. Smells of hops and cheese. Quite bitter with strong hops and alcohol aromas. Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish. BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Bomber thanks to miketd. Poured a hazy golden copper color with a large, rocky off-white head. Hoppy pine aroma attacks your nostrils as you bring it towards your face. My, my. That is a full flavored and full bodied beer. A piney, citrus hop flavor hits the tongue almost immediately and leads into a slightly bitter finish with undertones of caramel. Coats the palate nicely, and leaves beautiful lace in the glass. No hint of the alcohol in the taste. Awesome. Not bad for an extra that just got thrown into the package! Thanks a bunch Mike.

(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of kmweaver. Hazy, amber golden with a yellowish head. Fresh hop aroma of pine, citrus and peach. Medium body, some caramel and then a distinct hop bitterness. 021107 drinkerofbeers (18) - California, USA - NOV 9, 2007
A fine beer, definitely not for the faint of heart. this beer grabs you from the first sip and doesnt let go. the flavor profile is strong and robust with obvious pine and resin at the beginning but finishes nicely with a combination of grapefruit, caramel, tobacco and leather notes on the finish. if you dont dig this beer its ok... more for me.....
