3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Ruby in color, fairly dark, large frothy sandy head, super nice lacing.   Sweet citrus and pithiness on the nose.   A bit more hoppy than sweet on the tongue.   Strong sweet pith and citrus peel overall.
Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels pretty viscous at times.   Finishes with a strong citrus based hoppiness, malty, slightly sweet, and overall a tasty example of a big Red/Amber Ale.   Not as malty as I
would have thought, but decent enough.   Certainly more hop than malt, but thats okay.   Enjoyable example at least.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber purchased at Distillers Outlet in Poway ($8.49). Pours a nice garnet-red hue with two fingers of beige foam. Aroma of sweet-ish malts, wet pine forest, some citrus, honey, and floral hops. Flavor of pine sap, nutty caramel, bitter and semi-sweet citrus, brewed dark tea, and some sticky dark fruit. Though the hops are quite noticeable, this has only moderate bitterness. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel. The relatively high ABV is utterly concealed here. Solid imperial red ale. (70, 796)

Taste: Medium bitterness, pine, orange, caramel on the end.
Palate:Medium body, slightly slick, no carbonation, lingering aftertaste.
Summary: I am always a sucker for this style. This one is more accesible than some of the more aggresive ones, has a nice amount of flavor. Kind of wish aroma was more hop laden.
