3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours copper amber wth a foamy/creamy 4 finger beige head. Mixed fruit hop aromas over a caramel backbone. Med + body. Flavor is sort of mildly cooked caramel covered by a huge amount of hop. No harsh NW thing here. It’s mixed fruits and florals, with maybe a bit of pine. A fruity ale rather than a resin ale. Quite delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale amber pour. The nose is quite bright. A bit of citrus and some light spice. Pine bitterness and a little bit of soft spice. Not all that aromatic but intensely bitter. Okay but not all that characterful. As it warms there’s a bit of soft fruitiness that improves the beer significantly. Fruity and a little bit bitter.
