Bomber from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours orange/gold with a foamy off-white head. Strong citrus aroma. Near full bodied. Flavor is fruit, citrus, pine with a very nice caramel backdrop. Very flavorful. Heat not a problem til the gullet. Finishes arguably dry, with a lot of mixed hop flavor and that beautiful caramel. This seems to be a very well done ale.

Chill haze on the golden orange pour. Small white head and nice lacing. Bright grapefruit, orange, and tangerine aroma. Plenty of resinous pine, mild grass, and plenty of pineapple. Really nice pineapple flavor to go along with the grapefruit, tangerine, and oranges. Intense pine flavor and a strong bitterness on the finish. Surprisingly dry with just a bit of caramel flavor.
