Bomber from Keg & Bottle 2. Pours a medium copper color. Somewhat syrupy. Sweet candy sugar aroma with a little alcohol. Some sweet maltiness along with light trace of hoppiness. Some sweet hoppiness up front. Pretty smooth and easy drinking actually. Alcohol is hidden fairly well, although it does warm when going down. Pretty enjoyable.

Bottle. A dark amber color with a big foamy tan head that quick diminished. A pine, sweet malt, caramel and hop aroma. Sweet (a little too sweet) malty flavor with pine resin and a slight alcohol burn.

Amber colored, pretty good lacing and retention. Aroma is a mixed bag of cookie, caramel, various fruits, moderate to low hops. Medium to full body, pretty sweet. While most of their beers lack any real character, the soft íorganicí feel helped this one out IMO. Very drinkable for a 10.6% BW. Quite a bit going on, but flavors are minuscule for a 10.6% beer. Interesting one...

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - JAN 5, 2008
650 ml bottle from Bevmo. Pours a rich amber color with sudsy off-white head that lasted a while and left plenty of lacing in the glass. The aroma is strong with a citrus and sweet malt bouquet. The flavor up front is very hoppy biter; the impact of this beer is that it is an IPA or IIPA because of the bitterness. Besides the biter there is a taste of grapefruit, raisins, and walnuts. The mouthfeel is smooth and full, with good carbonation. The finish is long with lingering bitterness. Overall: this is a great beer to come home to after a hard day at work. Recommended.

SDalkoholic (2214) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 19, 2008
22 oz bottle from Pizza Portís bottle shop. A crystal clear mahogany is for the color while a small patch of head and slight lacing will occur. In the nose, a dark malt and delicate sweetness carries the aroma for a well induced scent. The flavor is mildly hoppy and sweet with caramel but nothing special or anything Iíd like to taste again.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2008
Bomber. This beer seems to be pretty close to the middle of the pack for beers named "Train Wreck" so Iím looking at it with a bit of trepidation. Pours clear coppery amber with a thick and lacy off-white head. Soft citrus, peach, toffee and grass aroma. The taste is not quite as rewarding - and more in line with the name. The taste starts toffee sweet, but hops are all over the place, and quickly stomp all over anything thatís going on with the malt. Herbal, perfumy, maybe with a little plastic? This one just doesnít work for me.

robforbes (2083) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2008
caramel/copper in color with a medium dirty white head.
smell of roasted nuts, spice, some pepper, caramel, barley, some cocoa in the back.
taste is grainy, some nuts, some caramel, and that organic funk.
i was really happy with this, the look, the smell, then when i tasted it i could not believe that i tasted "organic" and sure enough when i checked the bottle it was organic.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Complex and almost sloppy monster beer. Malty as all heaven followed by an earthquake of hops. Brown in color with a rich creamy head. I can see why others donít like this beer so much, but I do appreciate the "go big or go home" philosophy of the organic brewmaster.

Reid (2050) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Nice looking ale, dark orange, clear with a large thick creme coloured head. Aroma is pretty faint, but it was was malty,slightly caramel. Oh wow ..this is a strange flavour! Dark fruits, bitter malty and alcoholic all at once clashing in the first sip Pretty sugary in a sherry sort of way. After the first few sips it settles down into a very malty ,alcoholic taste , though not totally unpleasant. Actually alright on the palate, a little sugary at times . Overall a bit of a "train wreck" alright. Maybe this could improve with age. Though its notvtotally bad now.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Ruby with a nice off white head which dissapates. Aroma is malt, alcohol, caramel, brown sugar, very light hoppiness. Taste is malt, alcohol, hops show up fairly strong along with some caramelized fruit. Doesnít really come together like you would hope.
