3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours dark ruddy amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma is resin over roast malt. Med body or better. Flavor is lightly nutty roast malt, but there’s a lot of hop - mostly resin? - or is it spicy/herby?- anyway it drinks a s--- load better than the vast majority of ambers. Thankfully this amber is far from a drain pour. It’s even pleasant to the nose when the glass is raised each quaff. Good beer. Finishes with lots of hop bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Darker side of Amber, moderate frothy tannish head, nice lacing.   Soft bready aroma, a little grainy, slight pine like hops.   Malty up front, a little bready, citrus peel, pith, minor sweetness.   Seems
well balanced.   Could stand to be a touch sweeter.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Less malty on the finish, more like a Pale Ale in its pith and peel bitterness.   Not bad, if it were a bit more maltier and sweeter
it would be spot on!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a dark amber / brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out dry earthy malts, some slight caramel undertones, and a considerable hop profile. Flavour is very well-balanced, with tons of dry earthy, bready malts, and a great hop punch without being too overbearing. Highly drinkable and sessionable. Finishes dry and earthy. Great stuff.
