From the new bomber variety fourpack, purchased last week. The deliberately misspelled name is cute up to the point where you have to spell it "correctly." Then it's kind of a pain.

a: Clear copper with an inch and a half light tan head which receded slowly to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.

s; Ripe light fruit, mainly pear; then pine resin.

t: An unidentifiable fruity flavor followed by a substantial hop bite. Bitterness and some sourness lingers. High ABV is very well covered, although a bit of throat burn appears later.

m: Light to moderate. Pretty good body, good carbonation tingle.

o: A barleywinish mixture of other Stone brews (I understand) which is refreshing, but the sourness is a bit offputting for me. Any anticipated smokiness or oakiness is masked completely by the fruitiness, almost as though they mixed the brew with fruit cup juice. Which is odd considering it's a mix of three other Stone brews to which I have given higher marks.

Appearance - Pours deep, brilliant and relatively clear copper color with a finger's wdith of sandstone colored head. Fair retention before breaking down to thin, broken layer of suds and a thick ring around the edge of the glass. Chunks of lace cling to the sides with firm stick.

Smell - Nice citrus bouquet backed by plenty of caramel with faint hints of oak.

Taste - Boing! Starts with notes of caramel and hints of chocolate before quickly giving way to a strong citrus hop punch and a smooth oak undertone. Candied orange hits mid-taste and toward the finish. Hop bitterness reaches it's peak in the finish with a strong grapefruit rind character that lingers well into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Full in body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, silky texture with a semi-dry finish.

Overall - The conglomeration of AB, Oaked AB and DB tastes exactly as imagined; a bastardly blend of those bastard beers! A plethora of depth in flavor that would excite even the most advanced beer drinkers! If you have a Costco near you, go. Go now! The $15 Bastard Box is the steal of the year!
