Poured contents of bomber into a tulip glass

A - Beer pours a dark brown / mahogany color and has a bubbly carbonated characteristic which is present during the initial pour. A one fingered off white sticky head coats my glass leaving plenty of lacing to work with as it settles down.

S - Sweet caramel malt and moderate hops are present. Citrus fruit, molasses and a moderate dose of earthy hops are all present. Nicely balanced flavors.

T - Very nice malt bill that is extremely well balanced with the aggressive hop profile. The toasted nutty caramel malt and molasses compliment the strong earthy citrus hop flavors quite well. The alcohol is hardly recognizable except a bit at the end of the taste.

M - Light carbonation, flavorful hops and a slightly warming alcohol feel in the mouth. The malt and hops are one in this beer which is quite impressive given the aggressive 10.5% abv profile.

D - Very drinkable beer aside from the 10.5% abv which catches up to you quickly. I really enjoyed the balance of this beer and the lively flavorful hops. I will definitely have to hunt this one down again soon.
