3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear dark amber with light sediment. Has a typical Lagunitas aroma of floral hops. Starts with a malty taste and has some citrus, hops, and sweet caramel. A smooth taste with a lightly bitter aftertaste from both the hops and malts.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber ours russet color with a persistant white head. Balanced hop/malt aroma that is consistent to the finish on the palate. Fruity, caramel malt backbone. Overall, another well-balanced winner from Lagunitas.
