Bomber. 8% abv on the label.
It's about time I tried this beer. I've looked at it long enough and what a treat.
Dark murky brown a result of being unfiltered and loaded with hops - according to the label. Fine with me. A beauty to behold much more appealing than the highly filtered stuff.
Rye and hops. i've died and gone to heaven. Wonderful balance to be praised with words usually reserved for the most revered beers.
If you haven't tried a rye beer and want to, this is the one.
Update 11/08/11 Reality check just to make sure I didn't get caught up in the moment. Revisited since my initial review and it's everything I remembered. The gold standard for the style in my opinion. So, why is this classified an American IPA when clearly it's a Rye beer? It even says so on their website.
