4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber pours a hazy dark brown color with a thick foamy tan head that leaves good lacing. Smells of pine, citrus, chocolate and caramel. Tastes of the same things in the smell with good hop bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy with great carbonation. Great imperial red ale. Great balance and very smooth. Looking forward to itís next release.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Dark reddish brown pour with a layer of beige foam and bubbles. Mostly toasted grains, citrus rind and pine resin in the aroma. The taste is a blend of grapefruit, pine and roasted malt with a bit of tropical fruit around the edges. The body is a tad thick and creamy with sufficient carbonation and bitter citrus finish. Overall, a flavorful Imperial Black IPA style brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Pours dark brown ruby with big offwhite head. Aroma is not my favorite. Not what i expected from an imperial quasi hoppy style. Burnt hop smell that is usually a warning sign to me. The upfront flavor is the same but about halfway through some piney hops and chocolatey malts save the day. 8% abv totally undectable.
