maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a pretty thick light tan head on there. Nose is pretty hoppy with a lot of floral tones and just a bit of some toasted caramel to it. Taste is slightly toasty and bitter up front, but has a residual caramel sweetness on the back end. Nice brew.

slowrunner77 (7083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Amped up red/pale ale...juicier hops and more earthy/spicy/woodsy notes as well. Pretty nice brew. Not sure if they bottle this...

Looks like iced tea..Tastes like something far worse. Aroma is like a grain bin. Taste is like a Dirty Bastard...so if you like that youíll like this...I donít.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2014
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.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is light roast, oak, and booze. Medium mouthfeel with rich malt and sweet sugary finish. Decent.
