Our signature beer. We use lots of caramel malt and cascade hops to give this its robust flavor and floral hop finish. This is a great food beer because it stands up to our full flavored and spicy foods.

illidurit (2207) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light copper color with an ecru head. Aroma and flavor scream crystal malt. Some caramel malt too, but this is heavy on the astringent iced tea.

Poured from the bomber into a shaker. Dark amber with little head. Aroma is mild, but has biscuity malt and caramel notes. Flavor is similar with some light roasted malts and a good dose of caramel with some earthy hops. Medium bodied. Solid amber/red.

hayduke (3534) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 3, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. This beer poured amber with a big soapy off-white lead and a lot of attractive lacing. Nose of floral and grassy hops. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel. The flavor adds in citrus and lots of bitterness that carries over into the finish.

Strykzone (5208) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2011
22 oz. bottle sent by Hayduke. We, and his brother Rick, enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This beer is hazy and tea colored with a soapy orange gold head. Sticky lacing slowly falls down the glass leaving cool patterns. The aroma is grassy and mossy. Only light malt. The flavor is similar except a lot of citrus can be tasted. There is fairly big bitterness. Malt is an undertone. This is a nice beer and seemed to be fairly sessionable.

bhensonb (11800) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Bomber from the Whole Foods in Petaluma, CA. Pours clear brilliant copper with a foamy beige head. Smells malty. Tastes malty, with some floral bitter. Arguably a bit spicey. More pleasant than many ambers - has a taste suggesting hoppier brews. And it’s kind of ESB.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 On tap at Dempseys. Poors a clear reddish amber color with a small slightly off white head. Light carbonation, light lacing. Slight aroma of hay and spruce. Taste of light caramel maltiness and a moderate, nice floral hoppiness. Good balance, overall a good beer
