4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Happy’s Market, Ellensburg, WA; no ABV on bottle
Hazy amber color, medium sized head. A good American Barley Wine, as it’s well malty, noticeable from the moment you pour; sweet, rich, with nice hopping, lowering bitterness, but still good fruits and hop resins.
Very good, but probably not fresh.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Bottle Trek. Hazy red tinged amber color with minimal beige ring. Aroma seems to be hugely grapefruit, but there is a hint of malt. Medium body with rather creamy carbonation. It’s mostly hop over a little roasted caramel. Pretty much grapefruit rind with some floral aspects. Finish is pretty dry, but there’s still enough sugar to call it balanced - maybe. Pretty hoppy brew.

This beer rocks!
Very lightly hazy orange ale. The aroma is of sweat, caramel, light perfume, floral notes and wet leather. The flavor offers notes of caramelized pineapple, orange blossom honey and grapefruit rind. Thoughtfully bittered. Full-bodied with a heavy, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish. Great stuff! Underrated!
