Released shortly before Valentine’s Day, My Bloody Valentine is the red-blooded cousin of our Halloween specialty ale, Evil Dead Red. Caramel-sweet malt is delicately balanced with floral American hop varieties for a truly unique drinking sensation. A deep mahogany red color and a big, aromatic hop profile are the signatures of this seasonal ale.

Bomber from Nugget Market in Davis, CA. Pours very dark and ruddy with a foamy tan head. Nose seems floral with resin backing. Full bodied, almost. Flavor is pine/grapefruit with chocolaty dark malt. It finishes smooth bitter with chocolate notes.

DARK red brown pour big sand head. Aroma of pine, caramel. Tastes tobacco, woody, pine, slight choco, not as sweet as it smell which is good. Bittersweet through and through like a good British bitter. Could be enhanced by more perfume yeast. Aroma hops not all that strong, but might be because it’s 6 mo old.

Pour is more mahogany-brown than mahogany-red. But coupled with a lasting tan-head it’s a delight in the glass. Aroma is fairly sweet and enticing. At this point in its life (3 months old) the aroma is caramel-malt driven. Also some pine, spice and a hint of berry-hop presence. Taste is much the same except the hop presence presents more citrus than berry - maybe some grapefruit, tangerine. Palate is dry, medium bodied. Is an amber/red IPA mash-up. Despite the slightly generic flavor profile it is delicious. An accomplished beer.

DialSquare (2619) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bomber from the Andersons in Sylvania. Reddish brown pour. Aroma sweet caramel, floral, cocoa. Tastes are toasty, toffee, orange, little spice, pine, biscuit. Yeah, tasty - very drinkable.

Interesting. Good aroma. Good mouth feel. Delicious. Had high hopes after seeing it was ranked among the best ambers and my expectations were met. Definitely worth a try for any amber fans.

edwardbass (501) - Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Reddish brown with a big tan head. Aroma is roasty malt. Flavor at first is spicy hops, and then malty sweetness follows, some chocolate and candied orange. Excellent beer, even if I’m not a big fan of the style.

Bomber - typical hoppy American red ale, but a decently constructed one, I suppose - malts are toasty and sweet (caramel, pumpernickel, some raisin) - some acidity through the middle braces for the earthy, woody hops and bitterness that follows - finish is a little watery - it’s good for what it is, but I can walk into plenty of brewpubs across the country and get pretty much the same beer.
