Bottle from De Laurenti, Pike Market, Seattle
Cloudy amber color, with compact head. The hop aroma is mild, some cereals, light vanilla. Smooth mouthfeel, with good malt and cereals flavor, good bitterness level. Not rally fruity from the hops, not as fresh as expected; but well balanced.

Hazy amber colour. Woody, citric hop aroma. Luscious sweet malts match wits with piney, grapefruity notes. Great interplay of two well-defined elements. I like it.

Bomber from Bottleworks. This one at 6.1%. Pours hazy light amber with a white smear for head. There’s caramel in the aroma, but the hop seems floral. Med body. Near creamy. Flavor is definitely hop over caramel, but what hop? I’m going for floral with some grapefruit rind. Always a mystery to me. Nice drink.
