Amber copper color with a foamy tan head. Very dry, hoppy, bitter. Citrus zest, grass, woodiness. Malt and fruit deep beneath. novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2013
An interesting brew indeed. Shared pour from a 22oz large format bottle. Has a distinct oat/biscuit taste, a decent texture and interesting viscosity. Pours a beautiful ruby red with brown hues, little to no head. No lace left on the glass. Nose is biscuit/yeast/caramel and hop notes, with a great balance of texture, flavor, and aroma. Great brew from a Rochester brewery! TheBeerGod (6284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle. Copper pour with a tall, frothy tan head. Strong spicy hops and citrus dominate the aroma with subtle earthy hops and caramel in the background. Taste is also strong spicy hops, floral notes, citrus, caramel, earthy hops and light nuttiness. Body is medium with a strong, creamy carbonation. Finishes with more citrus, spicy hops, floral notes, tropical fruit, caramel and soft earthy hops. Decent hop bomb and an unexpected one at that!

Pours dark orange with a robust dry hop aroma. A dry bitter that lasts through the body and finishes smooth.

650 mL bottle purchased from Leary’s for $7.55. To snifter it pours a hazy, sandy chestnut with a hugely eruptive yellowish head two to three fingers in length. Has aromas of cornmeal, tapioca, yucca root, oatmeal, red liquorice, filament tape, clam juice, hops, autumnal leaves, and golden raisins. Tastes malty and and pleasantly bittersweet: has hints of oats and browned sugar on the forefront. Shortbread and bong water by swallow. Another hop-forward beer wherein gains its evident influence from the sativa hits at parties we never got to go to as a kid. Nicely done, I’m impressed.

Bomber from Wegman’s college ville. Pours reddish copper with some light coming through, a medium sized off white head, medium lacing. The aroma is certainly hoppy. There is a good bit of floral notes, medium pine, tropical fruit, a little sweetness. The taste has a nice hop punch at the front of the tongue that gives way to some caramel malt, a little rye, a little citrus. A solid offering.. and a bit dry, honestly.

Draught at the Gingerman NYC sept 2012. Dark amber beer with a small offwhite head. Very sweetish and hoppy aroma. Similar flavour. mansquito (7127) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Devil’s Den, Philadelphia tap ($6): Pours a red colour with a creamy head. Aroma is citrus hops and a hefty amount of caramel malt, along with whatever oatmeal smells like. Taste is moderately bitter, but paled in comparison to the Hoppin Frog IPA I had right before this. Body is rather nice and smooth and the carbonation is mellow. Not bad for an amber.

Bomber from ck1, shared with (at least) him - thanks bro! Pours a murky tannish amber. Nice lacing. Aroma has fruits, caramel and some grassy hops. Taste is of sweet caramel, some orange and brown sugar. Finishes sweetly. Not a Three Floyds as we mistakenly hoped! DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours caramelly ruby colored with clingy off-white head. Nose is piney hops, caramel malt, red wine grapes. Tasted complex, with a piney hop flavor, some vinous fruit at mid-palate, spare caramel malt, and a very hoppy finish.
