2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark coppery gold. Nose oscillates between a decent but malty DIPAish with maybe a little orange but then goes all vinyl. Malty caramel but lots of off flavors and an aftertaste I want to wash out of my mouth. Cool label. I hate it when breweries put ’farmhouse’ in name to try and disguise bad beer. Also..hops?

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a hazy, copper orange appearance with a tiny, cream colored head that basically has no retention. Toasted malts, caramel, vegetables, celery, bitter, nasty aroma. Candy, caramel, coconut, a bit nutty, veggie flavor. Complete fuck up but actually more drinkable that the Saison that I had previously. Really fucken bad.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle. mostly clean dull amber body; thin ring of a head; no height and no lacing. I could force a half-inch head with a vigorous pour into another glass but it quickly settled out. the aroma is a caramelized / burnt malt syrup core with accents of baked carrots, diacetyl, DMS, moldy red apple skins. pine resin aroma hops morph into cedar shavings and pet urine (yep). pretty much everything that can go wrong with beer is evident here. watery, weak, thin approach with a sweet and sour wort stew goop flavor; buttery hop flavor; sourish popcorn-flavored caramel malt goop loaded with solvent and higher alcohols. the sourish, burnt grain husk quality becomes increasingly bad as it warms and opens. pretty much loaded with fermentation and mashing defects, though most of them are individually small and tend not to dominate, together they create an unbalanced, dirty, unfinished-tasting beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber poured a clear amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, yeast, earthiness and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness, light yeast and a hint of pine with a smooth dry finish. Where’s the Hops? This is barely a Pale Ale.
