3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Brewforia. Pours hazy amber with a 3 finger creamy beige head. Aroma is primarily floral, but there are hints of citrus and pine. Can’t catch the malt. Med body. Flavor is floral and citrus - pretty strong, and after a bit there seems to be resin. Malt isn’t so roasty as I’d expect. It has a nice nose and it’s bitter. I think this is rather unusual, but it’s tasty and drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep amber, a little dirty, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing. Soft resin and citrus peel on the nose. Soft citrusy hops on the tongue. Pretty simple profile. Clean with a little bit of resiny bits on the finish. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finish is a little flat, could use some more carbonation. Other than that, good Pale Ale. Probably better on draught. Will need to visit on my next trip to Bend for sure.
