3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy copper amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma of citrus and grass. Maybe some caramel. Full bodied. Flavor is light roast malt with a strong dose of citrus hop (with still some grass). It has a lot of presence. Finishes fruity and just a bit earthy. Fairly tasty ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle from Roth’s Vista Market in Salem.
Seems to be a little old
Clear amber body to the ale,nice thick and creamy eggshell white coloured head.
Good spicy/grapefruit aromas,caramel malts to the fore.
Very balanced taste of caramel and spicy hop..little chocolate and nut also.
Palate is nice, its low carbonated and smooth though semi dry at the very end.
Actually not a bad beer..simple but i dig it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy red/orange. an awkward nose of dusty hop and slightly metallic malt. in the mouth it is smooth, balanced, peppery, caramelly and with a nice hop bite in the finish. this could be a pretty good session beer I reckon. Need a pint of it though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from New Seasons - Poured cloudy red with zero head. I even poured it straight down the middle of the glass. It looks like a beer that has been sitting around for a few hours. Strong caramel aromas. Sweet flavor. Hops kind of got overpowered by the malt. Meh.
