Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly cloudy amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is slight hops and sweet yeast. The taste is malt and hops. A very good beer.

from a 22 oz. bomber into an imperial pint
-beautiful slightly hazy amber with a creamy off-white head
-malt, slightly sweet nose
-sweet, crisp, and "malty" with a vague hint of citrus
-nice carbonation, a bit of an astringent finish (not a bad thing)
-very delicious and potentially dangerous given its 8% ABV. Fortunately, I only bought one bomber.
