3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
15th March 2015
Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crisp. Light malts bring mild sweetness. Tangy orange hops, some marmalade. Touch of lemon peel. Light finish with mild peel bitter linger. It’s fine but lacks vibrancy for a West Coast IPA, possibly not that fresh.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber listed at 7.1% ABV and 85 IBUs from Whole Foods in Folsom, CA. Label only claims to be an IPA (rye centric IPA). Pours copper with a 2.5 finger creamy off-white head. Aroma has that spicy rye aspect. Full bodied. Creamy carbonation. Flavor is definitely rye with a lot of fruit, floral and probably grapefruit rind for hop. This is quite a tasty ale. The carb backbone is clearly present to the finish, and nicely supports all the hop. In the end there’s rye and a bitter hop burn. Excellent.

Bottle. Pours reddish amber with off white head. Nose is perfumy hops, toasted grain, caramel and rye. Taste is heavy perfume - too much for my taste - rye, caramel and spent grain. Bitter finish. Medium body.
