Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. A big beige head atop this light brown beer. Some brightness to it. Cool lacing after the head falls. Floral and fruit aroma and flavor. Malts are pretty much right for the style. This is an American version and that is obvious. A smooth richer feel. The IBU number is total fiction. Not even close to that high. I do begin to taste some grapefruit and tropical fruit. Mid glass it becomes an IPA and the malts move well to the back. Bread is noticed late and just a little toast. I am not sure what style this is but it is a tasty beer.

Bomber shared with Strykzone (Dave) on Facebook Chat. . Pours a reddish amber with a beige head. Wonderful thick lacing rings. Nose is fruit and floral hops. Medium plus body and a very smooth mouth feel. Flavor is a lot of tropical fruit flavors on a caremal malt backbone. Also there is some orange, and grapefruit. Very sticky resinous mildly bitter finish. Alcohol well hidden. Very tasty and enjoyable beer. Dave said they claim 100 IBUs. I do not get that.

Not too many imperial reds out there. This one is a must. Super rich caramel and crystal malts in aroma and flavor. Some heat but NO cloying sweetness. It is all about the malts. There are some bitter hops I there to help balance out finish.

Ruddy orange pour, small tan head. Aroma is heavy on sweet malt, with fruity hop notes. Flavor of caramel, toffee, resin, pine, brown sugar, orange, grapefruit, with notes of grass. Damn.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Nose of caramel light chocolate and some floral piney hops. Pours amber red thin foam sheets a little head. Flavors of caramel and chocolate, sweet piney and fruity hops. Caramel finish a little heat and some hop dry resins. A little too sweet for my liking.

Bottle pour at home. Floral and hop aroma, pretty much the same in the taste. Very solid imp red.

Appearance: slightly opaque, deep reddish orange with a big, frothy/bubbly tan head that hung around quite a while, throwing off all kinds of fizzy aroma bombs. Aroma: big hops up front, with lots of citrus (esp grapefruit and blood orange), some catty/dank notes, and even some pine; under that is some candied fruit and brown bread, almost like a fruitcake. Taste: all the hops from the aroma come out, with the addition of some floral characteristics as well; there’s a firm malt backbone of caramel (werther’s originals) and brown sugar and toast. Finish: pretty dry, with a lingering piney/citrus bitterness that wins out, just barely, over the malt. Notes: Felt more like an IPA than an ASA; call it a Red IPA (someone call the BJCP!). Pretty decent, and the good malt backbone helped the whole thing hold up well. Good with a plate of tacquitos. Bottle from Sarah for Beersmas 2014.

On tap. A : Clearish red with a creme colored head. N: Pineapple, mango, biscuit, pine, earth, damp leaves, some bark. T: Very bitter with a modicum of sweetness. M: Medium, resinous body, big alcohol, biting carbonation. O: An unrestrained Impy red. Fruity, but I still feel it lacks some complexity and mouthfeel to push me over the edge in love.

Bomber. Pours a bright somewhat cloudy reddish color with a medium white head. A nice big fruity hop resin nose. Massive sweet fruity base combines with huge sticky sweet hops, resin, oranges, some caramel. Wonderful surprise. Sticky lingering hop bitterness. Awesome. Dry yeasty finish.
