3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty average beer here. Overall kind of malty boozey and orangey. This might be old because it does taste a bit stale and acidic.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours to a lightly hazy bronzed body with a tan head. Aroma of pine and citrus. A decent amount of malt to boot. Complex. The flavor is malty grapefruit, pine, and orange zest. Palate is bitter but balanced. Medium bodied, and a very good beer from a company I’ve never heard of.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This may be my favorite beer in So Cal. Period! The hops are floral and strong, but the malt profile is more pronounced than most IPAs due to corn sugar- lots of it. Production of this was very limited at one point, but appears to be on the rise these days.

Bomber from Valley Farm. Highly hopped nose. Some sweet and a lot of tropical fruit. Light amber in color. Somewhat sweet and highly hopped. Pretty good balance. Finish has a sort of dry peppery hop character to it. A hint of alcohol in the finish.

22oz bottle. Deep beautiful orange color. Great aroma of citrus, resiny pine, and grapefruit. The taste and mouth feel are of the charts. These guys at Bootleggers are killing it. I look forward to more beers from them...
