3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Beverages4Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy light amber with a foamy 3 finger off-white head. Aromas of roast caramel and resin. Med body. Flavor is harsh roast malt with some resin, and arguably a bit of citrus. It’s hard to decide: resin or citrus. Seems like both. Definitely bitter, and with time it seems a bit floral. This is an incredibly delicious beer. Just excellent.

A: The pour is a vibrant orange color with a big head that is just slightly off-white.
S: An incredibly dank hop aroma to this beer. Big citrus and pine notes with a slight herbal quality to it. A mild malt sweetness consisting primarily of bread.
T: The flavor is somewhat sweet and does not have quite as big of a hop punch as the nose. Some citrus and fruit hop notes and a solid pine character which gives the beer a strong bitterness.
M: Medium in body body and carbonation.
O: Good but not great, unfortunately. With some fine tuning, though, I think this one has potential.
