COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mythological beer emerges from the depths of our brewery every winter. Made with Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe hops and six organic malts, “A-Bomb” has a complex floral, spicy and citrus hoppiness backed up by just the right amount of malt sweetness. 7.3% ABV, 17 deg. Plato, 70 IBU.

Drinking from a can, but its amazing. Malty up front followed with strong pine and hoppy bitterness with some sweetish and citrus finish.

Great seasonal ale, very pretty burnt orange/amber colored with frothy white head. Hints of nutmeg and cinnamon and alcohol. Wonderful seasonal beer but 7.3% should definitely be in larger font on the can! Great great ale though. Warming and nostalgic flavor.

My favorite winter beer. When this beast hits the shelves every fall I get excited. A-Bomb is not the faint of hops. It has both citrus and floral sroma from the cascade for a winter which is uncommon but it allows the right blend of pine from the Simone. These guys from Portland are making it right!

16 oz can. Aroma: malty and piney, with hints of caramel and biscuit. Taste/Palate: thick; starts sweet and creamy, and finishes crisp (almost sharp), with a long bitterness.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
Single bottle purchased from Kensington Wine Market in Calgary, AB on 12/24/2012. Colour: Medium brown with light brown lacing. Nose: A whole pocket full of fruit and flowers from the hops. Subtle backdrop of toffee. Note of wet leather and tomato sauce. Huge nose with boundless energy. Taste: Medium sweet, medium bitter, medium sour. Like most brewery winter releases, this one is a bit sweet - but the malt is non-offensive and its integration is as slick as it comes. The hops are crisp and protruding - but again smooth and well crafted. Long, lingering finish of nut and even a dash of maple. Whoever was the mastermind behind this one is a genius.

Excellent beer. Great malt hop balance. Hits my soft spot for Centennial and Simcoe. Also redeems my experiences with organic beers.
