Poured from the bomber into a goblet. Bottled 10/1/14, and it being 10/13, this is shockingly fresh for a beer coming across the country.

Pours cloudy and an interesting amber color. Very impressive lacing- might need to scrub the glass after this one.

More sweet malt in the aroma than I was anticipating, but there's an earthy, herbal hopiness that blasts through. Nice, complex aroma.

Great flavor here. There is an undertone of onion, but the main flavor is herbs and spices. Tastes a bit like an expensive salad. Just enough sweetness to keep this from becoming overwhelmingly bitter. The alcohol sharpens the hop flavors as well. Interesting stuff here.

Sticky, but like the taste, it is sweet enough so that you're not overwhelmed with harshness. Thick finish.

Usually the oniony hop profile gags me a bit, but this brew is plenty complex that the onion becomes a compliment to the grassy and herbal flavor. I'm confused by the reviews that allude to fruitiness or citrus- my palate gets none of that. Would be an interesting brew to sample at a tasting with some other seasoned beer geeks, because it seems like everyone is getting something different out of this one. I like it nonetheless.
