look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Muddy brown copper color. Off white head that sticks around with a nice lacing on the glass.

S - Nice warm smell, bread, caramel, hoppy background, vanilla

T - Big alcohol up front, same bread and caramel as in the smell, molasses, vanilla, hops in the background (grapefruit, pine, citrus zest).

M - The alcohol is not well covered at all in this one. It's pretty bitter, with some pine/grapefruit/citrus hops. Aftertaste is bitter pine with a solid caramel malt background.

O - I don't know if I would say this should be so highly rated. For 6-7 dollars a bomber it gets the job done, but I don't like saying that with regards to beer. It's got a cool name, and it's available everywhere, it just doesn't have what I want in a beer. Too much alcohol, not enough flavor.
