3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Bier Thirty. Pours a deep cloudy copper color with a thick white head. A sweet raw hop aroma with some pine. The flavor is similarly dominated by really raw and bitter hops, early boil domination, perfume, spicy at times, some caramel. Not really too exciting though decent. Lingers with bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. Some floaties in this one, else it’s hazy, golden-orange and topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Fluor, something dusty, citrus peel and a touch of maltyness in the aroma. The flavor is on the citrus peel side, with resins and something malty in the back. Full-bodied, pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish with bitterness and flavors of citrus peel and pine cones. A quite nice one, nothing more. 120817

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a 22-oz. bomber into a pint glass at my house on July 31, 2012 (picked it up for $4.99 at KnB Wine Cellars in San Diego, Calif., on July 28, 2012). Lots of head, maybe 3-4 fingers. Hazy, caramel, toffee color. Lots of thick, frothy, foamy, white lacing on the top. Great retention (foamy) on the sides and the top.
Smelled wet (cascade?) hops. Soap, poor man’s pine, lime. Got a little mint in there as well.
Taste wasn’t much better than the smell. Really bland. Got some pepper spices, which I didn’t smell. Also light pine and soapy notes. Bitter on tongue after.
Light-to-medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt bitter finish.
Just didn’t think this beer was anything special at all. Skip it!
