3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber almost brown. Light head and lacing. Smells like beer; promise of malt and hops. Strong alcohol note and thick body. Solid malt and hop with alcohol in the finish. I wanted to dismiss it but as I went through the big bottle it stood up for itself.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Boundary Crossing Liquor Store, Vancouver
Dark amber color with medium sized head. The aroma offers nice biscuity malts, some cereals too. Good body strength, lean mouthfeel; it has a nice malt flavor, caramel, and an evident biscuity side; light residual sweetness, good bitterness level.
Balanced, clean, very good.

Bomber. Clear deep dark copper, foamy tan head settles and mostly fades. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, citrus, fruity, floral. Taste is heavy sweet caramel dark roast up front, citrus grapefruit pine hop bitterness behind. Average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. A more robust winter warmer IPA, which makes it: NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Bottle, shared with GCDP. Deep auburn body with a robust off white head that shows good retention and laces handsomely. Aroma is sweet over-ripe fruits and caramel. The palate is heavy with crystal malt sweetness, but there is a generous hop load here that offers some balance. In the end, this would be a tad too sweet for me to handle a full bottle to myself, but it is a great execution of this popular "sub-style". Keep it up Fernie!

650ml brown bottle. Reddish amber pour, clear. Sturdy and creamy off white cap. Nose has some candy sweetness, caramel and light citrus hop. Taste has caramel, bit of nut malt, light earth. Finishes with earthy notes, some leafy hop, lingering sweetness and a bit of citrus. and pine. Average body and carbonation. Overall ok, close to something i would like, but doesnt quite get there.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
3oz sample from bottle from Curtis from Fernie brewing. I committed to 3 cases of 650ml bombers after tasting it if that means anything to you. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, piney, lemon zesty and cookie dough malt. Taste is more of the same, dry piney citrusy hops and pastry malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious. I love admiral hops though btw, so I guess that is a caveat for this review.
