4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Waterfront, New York on 9th July 2013. Slightly hazy amber with white ring of initially lacing foam. Yeastiness, hops and sweet malts in aroma. Hoppy with rear-mouth grassiness, while caramel malt clings to front of mouth. Bittersweet, well-balanced finish -bitterness among smoothly-blended flavours. Light carbonation, easy drinking for the strength.

Bottle. Pour the exact color of Snapple tea. Needed a vigorous pour to generate head. A little flat on the tongue and no hop presence. Sweet and grainy. Maybe it was old. I don’t know.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Sweet nose heavy in PNW hops and rye, very strong caramel and even burned/scorched undertones. Pours orange-copper with a yellow-tinged, foamy dense head. Tastes of heavy rye with some caramel and stale rye, some earth and woody/fruity hops, medium-strong sweetness is a little too much, alcohol hidden, spicy and floral notes thankfully not. Relatively smooth medium body. Good, zinging hop flavor but the rest is something of a lightweight.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Paid $3.99 for a 22 oz. bottle@ Hampton Falls Village Market. Hazy orange amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of earthy hops, caramel and rye. Taste is better than I was expecting. Sweet fruity notes up front with balanced malt leading to a spicy rye finish. The bitterness is cut short by the sweetness. Medium body. Slick texture. I drained the bomber very easy and I have to say I could drink more of this. Nice Stuff. I’m sure it would be pleasant on cask as well. Nice brew.
