Bottle. Amber beer with a whitish head. Fruity estery aroma with some yeastiness. Fruit ester and sweet malt flavor with yeast. Medium bodied. Sweet malt lingers with esters. A bit of residual sugar in this one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Yeast, fruits and spice for a decent aroma. Amber body with white head. Flavor was good with some fruit and spice mix. But second glass from bottle man was like medicine spiced cough syrup sludge that was hard to drink. Odd brew almost like there were two different beers in the 22oz bottle.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. This was a rough bottle to get through. It poured nice enough. Aroma was very sweet and the flavor was too sweet, like cotton candy that burns with alcohol. Way hot alcohol on this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle. Clear copper with a sudsy white head. Nose is yeast, honey, lemon peel and banana. Quite the syrupy tripel with light carb. Taste is candied melon with slowly increasing bitter green banana. Finishes with an alcohol and black pepper bite.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2009 Bomber from BevMo Mira Mesa: Clear golden amber color with a medium off white head. Purfumey, flowery aroma with over-ripe pit fruit. Flavor is rich, sweet and fruity, peppery with a touch of alcohol and a long dry spicy finish. Medium body is smooth with moderate carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… mgumby10’s & hopscotch’s WtFFfFDotF Throwdown… Clear, brilliant golden ale with a small, fat-bubbled, white head. The sweet, spicy aroma imparts pale grains, clove and fuzzy fruits. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. Sweet, but not cloyingly so. A little fruity and not as spicy as the nose. Honey. Bittersweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from naven. Huge, sweet, fruity flavor. Perhaps too sweet. Minimal carbonation. May need a year or so for the sweetness to mellow.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I don’t know what it is with Left Coast, but ALL of their beers rub me the wrong way. There is a burnt, stale flavor to their malts that I just don’t get. It dominates every flavor in the beer, and this one is no exception. Ends on said stale note.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Incredible cotton candy sweetness overpowers this beer. This is a cavity in a bottle. Burnt orange body with a puffy whitehead. Nose is caramel, pure cane sugar, and sweet honey. Flavor is molasses, bubblegum, and banana. Medium mouthfeel but does get a bit cloying.
