Amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma was caramel malts and hops. Flavour was quite hoppy and sweet and finishes quite bitter.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Blind tasting. Light brown w/ good head. Big chunks in glass....Big grapefruit aroma and taste. More balanced than I expected from the aroma. Bitter hops at the end. Good thickness. Really enjoyed this one...funny that all 3 of us that rated it blind seemed to enjoy it, while most other ratings on here are pretty low.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Mildly funky caramel apple aroma. Hazy chestnut amber in color with little head. Kind of a nice sipper with flavors of caramel malts, honey like sweetness, and a zing of hops at the finish. Overall, tough to finish the bomber. Thank Andre.

Aroma like a wet dog. Slightly sour like an old ale. Hints of DMS. Slightly malty aftertaste.

highibus (804) - Vail, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2010
deep copper to almost red. Small white head with really nice lacing. Aroma is not really noticable but nicely sweet. lightly chewy with lots of deep malts, a little nutty. Sweet finish with light hop bite. Not bad.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bomber. Pours a coppery amber color with a small amount of sudsy off-white head. In the nose, theres hints of brown sugar, raisins, figs and cinnamon bread. The flavor starts out with lots of caramel, toffee, butterscotch and dried apricot notes supported by a toasted malt backbone. Just a tiny bit of a sweet citrus hops presence in the background. The body is adequately carbonated with a dry, sugary finish. In the end, its a little too sweet and one-dimensional.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Bottle from Bottleworks. Light fruity aroma. Pours hazy with a little head. Hops and a slight sour flavor. Mild tingle on the tongue after the long finish.
