2014-08-14. Dark orange amber body with a small beige head. Aroma has a lemon lime character with mineral notes, and tropical fruit notes as it warms. Flavour is sweet with dry alcoholic undertones. Interesting fruity hop melange. Alcoholic in the finish, it sneaks up on you growing as it goes. Lightly muddled hoppy fruit melange, tropical fruit, sweet not quite lychee character. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate, light carbonation. Tasty but on the sweet side. On tap at Blue Monk, Buffalo

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber, which was an omake from Asahiya. Big fat caramel, powdery cake-like hops, slight alc. fumes. Dark straw color. Caramel dominates, and then the alc. becomes quite noticeable, finishes with sweet, sticky fruitiness. Medium-heavy. Okay, Nothing really out of the ordinary for this style.
