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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Bottleworks, pours orangey amber with a white head. Wonderful aroma of piney hops, caramel malts (just enough to balance), grapefruit and mango. The flavour is no less hoppy, with citrusy hops, balanced perfectly with caramel malts. The palate is fruity and leaves a sweet caramel finish. Delicious - really well-made.
