4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours very dark - but held to light there’s a lot of garnet in it - decent creamy beige head. Aroma is mild cat piss - but there’s some roasty malt and arguably pine too. Full bodied cause of the creamy carb. Flavor is roasty malt with a heck of a lot of citrus and resin. Fact is, the feel is actually kind of like a hoppy barley wine - but there’s too much hop for that. Point: it’s not harsh - it’s smooth - but it’s hoppy enough to stand up as a NW hop bomb IMHO. Curl up around one or two of these, and go to bed. Excellent ale.

Finishes bittersweet and tangy. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!
