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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours coppery with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, sweet citrus, floral, slightest bit of dried fruit. Taste is malt, a bit of caramel, herbal, orangey, light bitterness. Medium body. Had this one at a wedding and it really hit the spot, then I had a bottle later (more sober...) and it was still solid but not quite as amazing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one pours amber red, somewhat akin to a weak iced tea. The head is nice; a full, soft foam, but this dissipates quickly, leaving a ring at the glass and a trace on the surface. First aroma is an acrid hay with a dough backdrop, not pleasant, and not enticing. The first sip brings an acknowledgment of the aroma; very dry, and coating my tongue with a very baseless bitter. Not flavorful, and not exciting. I certainly won’t buy it again. The bland is overpowered by the dryness and acridity. Pouring.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Bert’s. A tangy amber ale, some sweet malts, some bitter hoppiness. Clear caramel / orange color, small creamy beige head. Aroma is mostly hops, sweet malt taste follows, finish is mild bitterness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
somewhere between an amber and an ipa. too hoppy for one, too light for the other, though a pleasant enough beer overall. balanced and lightly floral.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wonderfully intriguing. Truly half parts red ale and IPA. The maltiness that starts is all red ale flavor, but without the instringency that I find sometimes in that style. Then, the flavor profile shifts to IPA -- a bit of resiny hops, with a requisite amount of bitterness. Kudos for imagination, and successful execution.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent to pretty good. Mild sweet and hoppy aroma. Cloudy, almost dirty amber color. Not the most attractive beer. Palate was somewhat heavy but smooth. Carbonation was good. Good blend of caramel maltiness with a subtle but strong bitterness that flowed through each sip. Good first impression of the brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Had this a few times now. Nice and malty up front with a pleasant and full hopped up red in the back. Good and properly priced brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle in Seattle. Deep orange, creamy body. Sweet orange candy malt aroma, carries through to the main flavor which is hard orange candy, something artificial about it. Juicy hops and caramel medium malts add up to a strange beer with big juicy alcohol. Tasty enough, but doesn’t quite add up.

7-28-13 poured from bomber with my buddy Josh. Good malts. Dark orange color. Some hops. Slight sense of overripe orange. White head reduces down. 8.4 BD; 8.9 Josh; 9.19 Joek
