3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours clear amber. Aroma is caramel and bready malts, light toast, floral notes, and some tropical fruit. Flavor is very well balanced with nice fruity hop character and a solid malt profile that dries things out and adds a touch of caramel sweetness; smooth, subtle hop notes carry through the finish. Medium body.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from the bomber into a snifter. Dark amber with a cream colored head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt with some light breadiness, and mostly resinous hop notes. Flavor is similar with some bready malt character up front, some mild sweetness, and a lot of resinous hops. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and a long finish. Pretty well balanced and very drinkable.
