Bomber. dark with tan head. More malty then hoppy but neither stand out. a little flat and unimpressive but not bad.

dresden (1132) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Pours deep black. Citrus aroma with some cocoa and coffee. Quite hoppy, but with a mocha malt body. I really like this one. Some grapefruit, some coffee. Works well here.

Johnsense (982) - - MAR 10, 2012
Black pour with a finger of head. Webs of lacing. Citrus aroma - hops, some coffee. Gave it a bit to warm and was surprised at how balanced this was - Hoppy bitterness with roasted malt, a bit of black coffee, under-ripe Grapefruit, Organic grains (think that smell when you step into an organic grocery store). Medium bodied, slightly lower carbonation. Resiny mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Syzzer (606) - Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Nice dark malts with pine hop flavor. The body presents a nice solid palate, minimal bitterness. Nice representative of a CDA Cascadian Dark Ale

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bomber. More dark brown than black in appearance along with an inch of foamy tan head. Lots of ripe citrus and floral hops in the aroma in addition to roast malt and chocolate toward the end. Strong herbal hops bitterness leads off the taste followed by some grapefruit, mint and pine. The malt flavors are burnt and roasty with bittersweet chocolate and espresso highlights. Mildly creamy mouthfeel with strong carbonation and more bitter roastiness in the finish. Nice blend of Pacific Northwest hops varieties and roasted malt flavors.

BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Bomber. Decent India Dark Ale. Nice and bitter. A bit thin in the middle. Pine and roasted malts. Bitter finish.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Mahogany with a thin white head. Some pine on the nose and other green aromatics. Medium bodied and showing good balance. Would like more complexity from the roasted malts. This shows more like a well made typical NW IPA.

Interesting blend of dark strength and hoppy pep, with the most extreme components of each kind of mellowed by the other’s presence. An interesting brew.

Reid (2062) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2012
22 oz bomber from "Lifesource" Salem. $4.95 Screen printed label..in the colours of the "Doug Fir" flag of the Republic of Cascadia. Mahogany dark brown ale with a nice thick creamy tan head. Great herbal,citric and pine tones from the hops in the aroma,hint of coffee from the malts. Surprising taste..very balanced but at the same time wildly swinging from the piney hops to the dark chocolate,toasted malts..then balanced again. Great mouthfeel very captivating..and a very tasty bitter after taste that lingers..like good dark esspresso coffee. Over all a very nice CDA

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Bottle with Carla. Pours dark brown with tan foam. Smells very bitter with grassy notes. Tastes bitter with plant matter overtones and hint of roasted barley.
