I had this on-tap at the brewpub. Poured into a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours an almost clear red/amber color with a layer of off white head that goes away almost completely.

Smell: Some malt and fruity hops with a hint of citrus.

Taste: Mildly sweet malt along with citrus peel hop bitterness. There is a really strong malt presence here. The finish is bitter and hoppy.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I thought this beer had a nice balance, which made it less hoppy than I thought the name suggested. Lots of malt flavor.

Amber-orange with decent white head.

Citrus and pear in the nose with somewhat grassy notes.

Plenty of bitterness in the background with nice carbonation and light caramel notes. Fruity esters and good amounts of hops as they seem to keep building upon each other. Hops start to really crush the tastebuds. Spicey, citrusy and loads of bitterness on the back of the tongue.

Quite bitter to say the least but with a name like "bone krusher" it better be bitter. Enjoyable throughout the pint and easy to drink. Lingering spice bitterness and pine on the tongue.
