3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Whidbey Beer Works. Pours very dark ruddy amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is creamy/malty. Mildly sweetish. Med. body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is pretty toffee tinged. Not all that sweet and there’s some hop underlayer that keeps it ok. But that caramel/toffee aspect sticks around.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber pours deep clear copper with off white head. The aroma has loads of chewy sweet smelling kettle caramelization with a touch of dark fruitiness in the background. The taste is similar with ample amounts of sweet caramel followed by a modest level of crystal malts and some dark fruitiness. There’s a light roasted malt note leading to some drying astringency to help balance out the sweetness.

Nice drinking version of the so-called "Irish Ale" from the DK! Honestly, not being too impressed with this style usually, this brew contained a nice body, complexity, and beautiful light blend of malt and hop on the finish. One of the better "Irish Ales" I’ve had!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer has what I would describe as a "gentle" flavor. Not weak or watery but instead full of subtle hints of flavor. A very enjoyable brew with a light color and great lacing.
