Bomber from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours clear dark copper with a creamy/foamy beige head that’s trying to ring lace. Aroma of arguably citrus hop over somewhat toasted caramel - almost a brown sugar sensation. Med body. Flavor is citrus hop plus maybe a bit of veg - then there’s arguable caramel followed by a brown sugar bit. Not sticky, it just makes me think this stuff wanted to be a barley wine. Interesting version. Finishes nice and bitter.

11/26/13. On tap at Barley’s, downtown Asheville. Amber orange pour with a nice khaki head. Was digging the aroma on this. Citurs, dank, pine, some resin, hints of caramel. The flavor was a bit disappointing. More towards the malty side of balance, caramel, bready, some hop bitterness and lingering citrus. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Reddish amber with just a little head. There are some nice pine needles worth of woodsy hops in here, making me feel outdoorsy. Tight little IPA -- quite drinkable. (#4328, 10/7/2011)
