Reviews: “Wicked as Sin brings a smile to this grumpy reviewer’s face. The IPA portion of the beer is right in your mustache; great burst of pine, then bitterness scalds the tongue with the business end of a steel wool brush. Rye is subtle & on the earthy end of the scale without veering into stale swampland territory. Bit of citrus, & a strange tang of saltiness that glues itself to the back of the throat, gose-style. Drinking this about 66% faster than the average beer, it’s slipping into the pink with ease. ” – maximum12 (BeerAdvocate)
“Bomber poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of rye, pine, grapefruit and floral notes. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of rye, grapefruit, pine and a hint of soap with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.” – Ratman197 (RateBeer)
