Pours a sorta brownish red color with little head. Smell and taste are both really off, there is a heavy, medicinal black tea flavor that is overpowering and off-putting. The hops are aggressive and not balanced by any other flavor, and the malt is just a bland clump. It is that abrasive raw tea note that kills it, though.

Bomber > Pint Glass

A - Dark red, ruby almost brown color with half a finger of off white soapy head, no lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet candies, roasted malts, toast, herbal hops.
T - Lots of weird roasty malt kinda flavors, then some really sweet cherry kinda flavor, like a halls or something, very big herbal hop presence.
M - Excessively chewy and sticky.
O - This beer is all over the place, and it misses the mark in all five zones.

Draft offering at the springhouse taproom. The brew pours a clear amber color with lighter yellow seen around the edges when held to the light. A khaki finger of head rests atop with a rich and frothy full wall lace sticking to the glass.

The aroma includes a little caramel malt sweetness accented with a fruity/floral alcohol and hop component. Interesting and enjoyable without fault.

The taste is herbal with some resinous fruits and floral hop aspects. Quite bitter but enjoyable. A light kiss of fruity alcohol resides overtop a pulpy hop bite.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is smooth and almost creamy in the feel. I have had this brew several times before and never bothered to review. I found myself enjoying this much more than in the past. I dont know if this is just fresher than ive ever had it or if they have been tweeking the recipe... all I know is this was good and if you havent tried it in awhile, you should make the effort to.
