4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Julio’s. Pours out a hazy light orange. Big white head and light bubbly carbonation. Light spicy aromas and flavors. This stuff really dances on the palate. Light and refreshing, but not too light. Light bready-spice finish. Good find - put this in 6-packs please!
bottle, old rating from 2016ish - Hazy copper pour, aroma of citrus and resinous hops. The flavor is aggressively bitter with good citrus/resin character. Medium bodied. There's some rye spice flavor under all that hops. Quite good. obguthr (6656) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2017
Tea, wood nose. Cloudy copper, thin yellow head. Woody. Medium body, easy carbonation, a little warm. Dogbrick (13763) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2017
Sample at the brewery taproom. Hazy orange-amber color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops and rye. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, earthy malt and rye. The finish is hoppy up front with a rye malt aftertaste. Above average overall. sinfull (1798) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2017
Amber color. Medium sized, off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt , pine, some minerals and spices . Well balanced taste with strong malty backbone and strong, hoppy bitterness. Tastes almost like DIPA.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Appearance is mild hazy, light brown/dark orange with minimal sparkle, finger-width off-white foamy head with poor retention and trace lacing. Aroma is caramel and rye malts, earthy bitterness, mild candied sugar. Taste is as aroma. Palate is medium bodied with slick texture, soft-to-average carbonation, rye spiciness and mix of malty sweet and hop bitter finish. Overall, malt presence is more reminiscent of APA but is good. Balance is present and rye adds interesting feature, as always.

DATE: July 6, 2016... OCCASION: Greeting Shan after an attempt to score Hamilton tickets...but she is still in good spirits... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... dark, handsomely gradient amber body with ample bubbles... a frothy, off-white head settles evenly and leaves cloudy ribbons... a fresh, light, toasted bread aroma begins, with the spiciness of rye--pepper, lemon and suntan lotion (?!)--with a heaviness towards the dough... the first sip is invigorating, with a medium-bodied, creamy, thickness that is almost chewable... nutty, toasted, and bready, with a lemony citrus kick... nice peppercorn crackle, with a strong back end finish that lingers.... this beer packs a powerful flavor profile without tipping its hand in terms of ABV... an excellent stand-alone that compliments Smuttynose’s portfolio...

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2016 Bottle, thanks vino! Amber color with nice white head. Aroma is piney, resinous, sticky. Taste is more piney, resinous, sticky, a bit spicy, bittersweet finish. Medium carbonation. Simple, but what it does, it does well - very nice, although I don’t get a lot of rye spiciness in here... Hangover (1142) - oxford, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Dark orange pour with a medium off white head. Nice sweet citrus aroma. Citrus flavor up front, resinous hoppy middle, lingering malty, spicy finish. This beer is straight up delicious. TylerGreenDC (1054) - - MAY 24, 2016
Draft. Nice reddish color. Flavor is slightly syrupy sweet, without much else. Odd under-carbonated mouthfeel. Just kind of meh.
