P: Dark amber body with evident carbonation and thin airy bone colored head that fades fast settling to a thin layer.
S: Citrus dish soap, earthy hops, semi dry paint, oak, pumpernickel and rye bread. Sweet candied malts, paprika, apples, maybe mango with roasted almonds and grains.
T/M: Roasty sweet malts, banana, smoked grains, green apples, faded earthy hops. Once warmed the soap aroma finds its way into the taste along with cherry alcohol. Not overly complex and nothing really memorable. Medium body with prickly carbonation. Finish is dry with timid pine and apple bitterness.
O: Th claim of this mystical creature has fallen short delivery an easter bunny rather than a powerful fierce creature of myth and legend. This ale is not entirely bad but truly bland and not as complex as should be. The hops are timid and the malts are not bold either. For what it is, a $3 bomber, I can appreciate it. However, a great ASA it is not.

Bev store run after seeing the bone cracker..If I've never seen something before I just have to try it..
Pours a really deep, clear amber with a whopping two inch beige head. Head dropped to one inch after about 10 minutes and left Lots-O-Lace.
Smells initially of hops..subsequent sniffs had a medicinal quality along with said hop aroma.
Taste was slightly bitter hops..can't call them citrusy or piney...I really can't describe them...Not too much else going on here..maybe a bit chemical/medicinal.
Fairly light bodied with lots of carbonation.
Looks a lot better than it drinks!
