Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Big caramel malt aroma, citrus and pine hop notes. The flavor is more of the same with some fruity alcohol. A clean well made IRA.

Draught at the brewery
Dark amber color, hazy. Solid caramel brew, moderately sweet, with a good resiny hopping. More interesting than the similar Rando IRA tasted side to side, and with no diacetyl.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a finger and half of head on a hazy dark straw body.
The aroma is deep, dark grain, copper and forest.
The taste is moderately bitter, a big malt profile but not sweet.
The texture is thicker.
A big malty and hoppy beer, and quite drinkable.

Draft pour at Frankies pizza. Pours a cloudy orange color with a foamy head. Aroma and flavor are very basic to the style, though not bad at all. Has a sweet side, spicy, and even a tiny bit sour, which was less ordinary. Overall a tasty beer

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber pours with a amber colored body that supports a tan head of tall foam. The aroma offers up some malts, a thin bit of roasted malts, a dash of toffee, a sliver of pine hops, a touch of dank onion like hops and a biscuit malt sort of thing. Overall there’s enough hops going on to keep the varied maltiness at bay. The taste has a distinctive Arragant Bastard Ale to it, which I enjoy. I get roasted malts, some pine hop goodness and then a mild dank onion hop spiciness. Nice! It has a pleasing malty to roasted malt base, a good dose of pine hop bitterness and smooth hop flavor. I dig the double rainbow.

Bomber. Pours a dark copper color with a medium beige head. The aroma is heavy caramel, Vienna malt, bready. The flavor is toffee, caramel, sweet berries, a bit of smoke. Interesting. Not super hoppy.

This 22 oz bottle was shared in a joint tasting with Strykzone via Facebook Chat.. He had his own bottle of course.. Poured a muddy dark amber color with a beige head and good lacing. Nose of sweet caramel malt. Some floral and citrus. Rich body. Smooth in the mouth. Flavor is like a barley wine. Shows malts first, and then the floral and citrus hops. Low bitterness. Fruit and a hint of nuts shows in the finish. Hard to find a style for this unless "good" is a style. Liked this a lot.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This beer pours darker brown and is opaque. A two finger plus beige head leaves thick lacing. LOTS of semi suspended solids. The aroma is very malty but is also very fruity. First sip is of a malted up IPA and it is on the hot side. All kinds of fruit and all kinds of malt. The fruit is citrus and tropical varieties. The malts bring toffee, biscuits and a lot of sweetness. Some rye pops in. This beer is part barley wine, part IPA (and part double), and even some Irish ale. This beer works but only so well.
