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 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.

Aubrey (3501) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Murky and burgundy-brown. Snappy, assertive hops from start to finish. Lots of pine, resin and grass, followed by a nip of citrus. Healthy amount of bitterness. Malt side is somewhat roasted and toasty, which seems to be its main deviation from being a black IPA. Also has a grainy nuttiness to it, which builds over time. Subtle scorched-toffee sweetness is easily kept in check by the hop bitterness and a hint of burntness. Tasty beer.

22. Pours nearly opaque black with a creamy tan head that settles and then sticks around. Fresh piney nose with mild roasty black ipa undertones. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roasty mid palate with caramel and pine notes and a long clean piney finish. Nice strong red.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Piney and floral hops on the nose, rather pungent hoppiness really. Toasted malts, a little sweetness, and some vodka. Pours darker auburn/amber. Thin head and lace. The flavor consists of pine and floral hops, toasted malts, a little roast, a little sweetness, and vodka. After the vodka comes an assertive and rather agressive hop bitterness. Lingering hops and a little booze. Good.

BrewDad (5120) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Dark brown with a hint of red. Clear with a thin head. Big hops and malt flavors and aroma. I do get some piney and light citrus flavors. This was a big tasty black beer. Thanks Tim for the taste.

Bacterial (2352) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Pour from 22oz bottle. Dark dark red pour. Some tan lacing. Pine and faint citrus on the nose. Nicely hopped, strong pine and grapefruit. A very nice beer!

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.
