3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours very hefe style hazy with a one finger head that reduces to a collar and a few islands. Aroma is very tropically, fruity, passion fruit and mango especially. Taste has the fruitiness, but is drier than expected, very mellow bitterness, fresh tasting, zesty. Body is medium, carbonation is kind of low. Overall interesting beer. The bottle says it is an IPA, but this site says American strong ale, which is it? I would go with an IPA, way too light and refreshing to be an American strong ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy orange amber with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aromas of light stone fruit and something herb/floral. Med+ body. Flavor is sort of Belgian. Medium stone fruit, yeast/spice, citrus/earthy hop. It has a lingering low level of maltiness in the finish, but there’s enough spice and bitter to put that in place. Rather mouthsmacking.

Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Intresting flavor in a good way. Lots of hops and chocolaty aroma and flavor. This was a slick tasting beer with an awesome name.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Curiously interesting beer. Earthy-yeasty nose. Bold sweetness made me think of rock candy, Astro pops and caramel. Hops made me think of sweetgrass, holiday spices and pepper. Alcohol was a bit throat warming. Mild bitterness, relatively speaking. Found it interesting that they’re growing the same hops I grow in my backyard on San Juan Island, which is just across the bay from my house. Overall, I found this beer to be flavorful and interesting.
