Pour is clear copper color with a tight white head. Nose is rubber, notes of plastic, some caramel malt, and a light resin hop. Taste is metallic, burnt rubber, caramel, candied orange sugar. Creamy body, moderate carb, a bit syrupy, dry finish.

I bought several dozen bombers to a party and we tried about 7 different BHB beers. What we experienced way out in here in Plainville MA is that it was not a very good experience, we had every single beer in some level of spoilage. No product expiration date or batch codes on bottles. I called this brewery and all they said was “it happens” well I am no longer a fan and actually never was. The owner of the package store said he was done with this brewery.

This was awful. Drain poured it. I'm really not sure what they were doing with this, but most home brews have been better.

In a pint glass the beer was a gold color. The head was white and medium-sized, and left a little bit of lace.

Not much to the aroma. A little pine, a little citrus, and a bit of sweet malt. Very understated.

Same for the taste: a little pine, a little citrus, a bit of bread. Just not that much there.

As others have said, not much of an IPA sense to this beer, more like a pale ale.

This bomber will do it for me.
