Bomber served in a tulip. Pours dark amber-brown with a short khaki head. Aroma of tea, resiny hops, caramel malts, and spice. Medium sweet, medium bitter flavor. Medium body, med thick-creamy texture, soft carbonation, and a long, malty-bitter finish. A solidly built, resiny imperial red imo.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a murky dark orangey brown with a towering beige head. Nose is full of rock candy, caramel malts, and English hops. Flavour is again dominated by the rock candy, followed by caramel malts, bready notes and some muted English hops. This is anything but a IIPA, by any traditional sense. Finishes on a sweet, yeasty note. Quite highly carbonated. Bizarre and a huge mess. No idea what the hell this was supposed to be, but it didn’t work. Piss poor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep caramel, large frothy sand colored head, sticky lacing.   Distant citrus aromas, a little pthy, a little candyish.   Distant citrus flavors, not too bright, not dull, slow to start, slowly builds but seems to never get to a bitter point.   Decent malt base, certainly more malty than hoppy.   Has flavor, but not in that bitter aspect.   Fairly smooth, body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Semi-sweet citrus like hoppiness at the finish, without really any bitterness.   Not a big hoppy or malt bomb like DIPA, instead its about flavor.   Different, but enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy copper with a 5 - count them 5 - creamy beige head. Near full bodied. Flavor is heavy roast malt with a lot of floral and citrus hop. Not getting resin so far. It’s a flavor monster. Not NW DIPA exactly, not a lame flavorless DIPA either. I’d almost say there was a bit of rye in it. Who knows. Finishes quite hoppy and full of flavor.
