It looks like it is missing the entire request. It's not missing the host field, it's missing every single field from the client request.
method,host,uri,referrer,user_agent,request_body_len are all missing.
Are you running bro on the machine making the outbound connections? I'm guessing that 184.108.40.206 is your desktop machine.
If you look inside your reporter.log, is there a warning about tcp checksums?

I also manually examined the PCAP file using Wireshark and found the host field to be present in all instances. I am a bit puzzled. This is significant for our use case because we will be using Bro to monitor for malicious URLs and the like.
