22 bomber bottle brought to Florida by Da Dos's friend Alfonse.
Rusty copper color, shiny. Creamy Biege head, lots of foamy bubbles. Lacing was more than enough down the glass. Head thinned quite a bit after a few minutes.
Smelled of florals, rose petals, and fresh cut grass. Lots of Hops, and slightly tart medicinal smell. Taste was hop concentrated to start, striking bitterness. Big and unbalanced almost. Crystal and carmel malt way in the background, lacked any bready biscuit sweetness and body. Medium to light bodied. Very good and drinkable, but I think the hop flavors were a touch overdone and aggresive. Tasted to me like a West Coast version of English Bitter, which it is, but I guess not what I had expected.
