Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is of pine and grains (sort of bread-y). Flavor is good: pine, citrus, hops, malt, bread, and coffee. However, didn’t get so much rye. Good overall, worth a try!

Bottle @ home via trade with OCBeerSociety. Thanks! Pours a hazy golden appearance with a cream colored head. Spicy rye, slightly dull bready, mild grapefruity aroma. Somewhat juicy, grapefruity, orange cream sickle, fairly sweet, dull bready, bitter herbal hoppy flavor. Doesn’t taste super fresh but not sure I’d enjoy it much more even if it was fresh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from K & L Liquors, Hollywood. Handsome pour of bright golden-orange, with a nice billowy head and silky carbonation. Nose is rustic, grainy, and nicely dry, with a healthy undercurrent of potent tropical hops. Buoyant mouthfeel, solid carbonation. The rye and the grainy flavors combine with the hops to give this a moderately spicy feel, almost like an earthy but very well-hopped saison in places. Very enjoyable brew.
